Its hard to appreciate how frayed and messy this guys finage is. His tail actually grew back in pinchy in places, he also has holes and missing sections in back lower and top back portions.
As arrowana keeper have so many videos on Youtube for surgeries I have begun to ponder fixing this guy up.
he is the healthiest guy it is really aesthetics that make me want to do anything about it, that being said I believe he would recover well from some cosmetic surgery given his overall health, if I decided to go for it.
He was been with me since james before james closed his store, has gained much weight and is always happily flared.
The two surgeries I have seen are as follows..
1- With a razor splay between all rays that are not joined all the way, this leads to increased growth between, and a more fan like appearance.. might this close already gapped areas or is this meant for already joined areas and just an increase in width between rays?
2- an actually trimming of an area, I have seen tail cut to what looks liek half length.. I imagine they grow back?
As this has not fixed itself by now will it ever?
I am just toying with the idea-- No scalpel in hand yet.. wanted to hear from you guys about things you may have done that may look like same..
