Do fins "break"?
Hello forum. Got another specific question that I'm not finding definitive answers for.
My yellow tang came out of QT
about a month and a half ago, she had some nip marks in her fins from the damsel that I returned to LFS
, but those have since healed up. After moving her to the main and letting her negotiate the pecking order with my Indian Yellowtail Angel, there is a 1/2" section of her dorsal fin where about 1/8" of the fin looks bent over or broken. It appears as if the cartilage is "creased".
I treat weekly with vitamins and she eats lots of seaweed and spirulina, a good diet. She is also recovering from what I'm pretty sure was HLLE
. Will the fins eventually "repair" from a break, the same way they do from nips, or is this something she will always have? It shouldn't prevent her from being otherwise healthy, should it?
Thanks in advance,
