      Question Koi Deformed Head

      Hi i have some fishes that actually develops deformity and some are born with deformed heads. Though it appears to affect only the appearance and doesn't take away from the health of the fishes affected.

      I just want to know if this deformity or dent on the head would go away? (since it just suddenly develops)
      or if its permanent ?
      Is there any way we can prevent this to happen?

      No, this is genetic disposition being expressed. The breeders, when performing their first fry culling, look for these abnormalities and eliminate them immediately.
