      Its always the favorite

      I have a 29 inch 3 or 4 year-old mukashi ogon built like a tank. Unfortunately, yesterday I noticed she was not swimming gracefully. Upon further inspection, it seems like the first 1/4 of her body is bent like she is trying to make a left turn. The bend is not perceptible when the fish is relaxed or still. It DOES NOT look like the spinal deformity you see with electric shock or something more obvious. I don't know if this will "heal" or if the fish is in pain. Any advice would be nice. Ill try and get a video. I have a video but I don't know how to upload

      Here is the video. I did a little research and it seems if the spine is broken it often severs innervation to control of the swim bladder and this fish IS NOT having a buoyancy issue. Again, any advice welcome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjAsfFbXBWY

      Sorry to hear this happened. Video quality isn't allowing me to really see anything clearly.

      I’ll work on getting a better one. The “injury” is not obvious. I only can tell in the changed swimming pattern and lack of appetite

      She actually looks worse today. Yesterday she was "C" shaped, today she is "S" shaped. The UV is out and I'm waiting for a replacement bulb to arrive. If the spine is broken, as I now suspect, what is the appropriate course of action?

      Do fish have strokes as often as humans?

      Why not?

      I had one Sekiguchi with similar symptoms. It also happened when water was starting to cool down. I too thought it was electrical except I really don't have anything in pond that could have caused this. All my pumps are external and use low DC voltage.

      I am leaning toward the theory that the fish had a stroke or some sort of neurological abnormality. BTW, my Sekiguchi recovered more than 90% after the water warmed up. I can tell he isn't 100% normal because I know what to look for. Most people probably can't tell.
