I hate the thought of genetically modifying fish just for the look.... Anyways I bought mine as Bolivian rams and they are honestly the nicest ones in my community tank with or without the long fins

I attached a couple pics hard to tell but of you look at the underside fins they are crazy long

What could be wrong? Just came home & he was like this. He can move his side fins & tail. He is not gasping or anything. Ammo nitrite are 0 & nitrate is 20ppm. No one else is having problems. Tank has been cycled & establishes since November of last year. Only new thing to the tank is cabomba plant but its been 5 days with no problems.

Rams can be delicate so I would blame the nitrate levels.

Well that's about normal. It hasn't changed since we got him. It's like something is wrong with his back. He is slightly curved. I've got him in a qt tank right now but I don't think he is going to make it.

Did he show any signs of distress prior to this?

Just the plants. Contemplating snatching them out so no one else may possibly have problems.
