I have a 1 foot long red bay snooK with one eye. I think she is a bit of a creeper i always see her at the side of the tank staring at me with that eye. She follows me from side to side and eats from my hand. But surprisingly she is a very efficient predator and very greedy i have seen her scoop up 5 goldfish in her big mouth and you can see a few heads peaking out of her mouth. However i was not too happy when my albino ruby shark disappeared and seen her with a fat belly looking quite pleased. Tsk tsk...

Had a female P. elongatus back when I was breeding cichlids pretty heavily that was born without a tail fin. Her dorsal and anal fins over time became very elongated and swept down/up at the back of her body, creating a pseudo tail fin. She swam just fine and even successfully carried and brooded several batches of normal offspring before she passed away. I always regretted that I never got a picture of her.

When my 70g was a community tank I had a peppered cory with a squashed/deformed face.
