Hi everyone,

I have four white cloud mountain minnows in a 30 gal community tank. I noticed today that one of them has sprouted an extension on the upper lobe of its tail!

I've never seen this, and can't find any reference to it on the web...thought one of you might know what's going on. The tank is perfectly stable and has been uneventful for quite some time, besides basic water changes and maintenance.

Here is my fabulous half-lyretailed white cloud (also very cooperative! :))



Any ideas??

Thanks,

David

I'm guessing it has something to do with the fish maturing. I dont anything about that species, but it could be a male trait. Fish are usually a bit more fancy than the females at adult hood.
