Opinion on Green Terror Fins

Postby EmperorQuinn » Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:45 pm

Hello all,

New guy to the forum. I wanted to ask for your thoughts about the appearance of my green terror’s fins, which look more clamped than I remember them to be. Behavior-wise, the green terror still eats and is still pretty active.

About my tank set up: 120 gallon fully cycled tanked. Readings are 0 / 0 / 20ish nitrates. I keep 2 clown loaches, 5 clown loaches, a flower horn, a red devil, 2 blood parrots, a fire mouth, a Texas cichlid, a Severum and a Jaguar cichlid.

Any ideas or possibility that the GT now has a parasite? I haven’t noticed any clamped fins in my other fish. Thanks for reading!

With that stock I wouldn't be surprised if it was being picked on.

My GT is third in command in terms of dominance, which goes FH > red devil > green terror (GT) > blood parrots ...... > Texas cichlid at the bottom tier. Overall, there had not been much bullying but definitely short spurts of chasing here and there.

Today, the fins looked better but still not fully erect unless if my GT thought I was gonna feed him. If anybody has had any experience, please share because I’m still worried about the guy.
