    Hi,

    I'm not sure what's going on with my Royal Gramma. The tip of her pelvic fin is white. I can't tell if it's damaged from the rocks or if it's some type of fungus. It doesn't look fuzzy and it's not spreading. It hasn't changed for about four days. It almost looks like the colored outer part of the fin was removed and there's some cartilage left behind or something. Is that possible? I don't know the fin's anatomy. She is eating fine and active.

    Thanks!

    Hi Kcbrad

    a picture would be ideal , but grammas do get themselves into scraps quite often
    maybe he picked on someone who was willing to snap back?

    Haha I don't think there's any way I could get a picture. Her small size and fast swimming, mixed why my inept camera skills....it would never work! I'm thinking it could be from a mini fight, because she is quite feisty. I'll keep my eye on it and hope for the best!

    Thanks!
