    Contrary to others here, I'd recommend mystery snails they can get around an inch or so but I have a planted tank and they seem to be doing well. The only way they can breed is if you don't have the water level all the way to the top. I've accidentally gotten some by doing that but I only really...

    Two spot barb with a Bent spine

His fins are all intact so I know that's not the issue. I'm not sure whats going on or how serious this is so any...
