I just got a dovii last night and when i got him home from the store and put him in the tank i noticed that some of his gill was missing and you could see what looked like his lung. Im just wondering if he will grow and that it will cover up.

I don't think so. I have a tiger barb named gilly and I have had it for about 6 months and it hasn't grown back yet. It is just fine. It probably get more oxygen.

How big is the dovii? When young they are timid. Once they hit 10" or more then you'll see the boss. LoL
I have 2 right now. Just 3" each. I actually had to throw in a few free jacks to get them to stop hiding since they are so timid. Now the male is a huge jerk. LoL

yeah lol nice to see a Virginia Beach person on here. but thanks for the reply guys this helped. My dovii is now starting to fight back at him and not take his **** lol. But this larger firemouth that i have is running the tank now. he must feel that the dovii is maturing and getting stronger
