Fin rot in a public aquarium, really!?

Silver Dollar | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Isn't that disgusting? Possibly more fin nipping than fin rot, but still... Wow...

Apparently taken at Seaworld San Diego.

It does look more like nipping than fin rot. If you think about it, they have to do the same things as we do to treat disease/injury. I guess they could qt it somewhere in the back though. If it is just an injury, there's really nothing to be done.

But there is absolutely no way that a SD should be caught really, they're too fast when healthy. What on earth must they have in that tank?

They are showing non-Silver Dollars colors. They have absolutely no coloration which is correct and although I am sure some of the green is from the glass/plastic of the aquarium, I simply cannot believe this... Most of the fish have NO fins. There's one with no fin on the top, another with no fin on the left... It's insane.
