Curved spine

Hello yesterday i noticed my male panchax spine is curved. What does this mean? Apart from his spine he is normal no loss of appetite or lathargic.

I don't know much about it except that tetras have that same disease maybe it could be the same for your fish also Ive seen that it's a sign that the fish is too large for the tank

Not sure if that's quite the reason. I have a Dwarf Gourami that I moved to a 100 gl. and his spine recently became curved. the only thing I can attribute mines to: is Spawning. He did the mating dance and built several nests, and fertilized eggs and what not. Maybe he threw his back out... will post pic later.
