Here you go.


I noticed when he was floating in my tank. It is fairly active, but i don't want to put it in my tank or else my fish would pick at him and probably kill him.

Some mysterys can survive without their trapdoor. Keeping him away from fish is a good idea as they,ll nip him. Have you had him for a while?

Got him yesterday. Along with two other blue ones and an ivory one. The others all have their trapdoors. Will it grow back?

No it won't grow back sorry, do you have another tank to put him in? He should be ok if he's kept away from fish, if you can't I would take him back to your lfs if it's not too far for you.
