Hi everyone...okay so I have an oscar that wont grow and I noticed today that I also have a severum (Torrey) with a funny looking face...I did not notice this when I bought her...mind you she was really small and so it would have been difficult to spot...and I had not had a severum before ...anyway... I was looking at my severum and I noticed that one side of her face (the right) sticks out further than her left side. The bottom section of her gills on the right flare out farther too..her mouth looks straight..although it's so little its kind of hard to say for certain..is this some kind of deformity??..She also has more spangles on one side of her face and barely none on the other..she is growing, healthy and eating..I never had any intention of breeding her,so if it is a genetic thing, that's not a worry..but does anyone know any more about this kind of thing??..I have done a google search but have not been able to really find anything....have to admit though I am kind of a bit bummed out that she's not the best looker..when you start to design a tank and have a picture in your head of what the finished product will look like; hearing visitors to my house say "what's wrong with her face?" is not what I had in mind.....but I love her, and she's gonna have the best life I can give her anyway...
