I've been browsing photos to get a sense of what kind of color, pattern, and tail type I most like, and also to better understand those elements. I saw this lovely guy labeled as a Super Delta. Can you tell me if that curl in his dorsal fin (top fin) is just the fin moving in the water current as the fish swims, or is it a sign of a problem with the fin itself? I'm not familiar enough to be able to tell and I'd like to be able to recognize the difference of these kinds of things when I'm later ready to make a purchase.

I don't think there is anything wrong with his dorsal but you can always ask the seller for another photo for piece of mind.

thanks for the reply. :)
Since I'm not ready to purchase yet, just browsing, I thought it might be rude to ask the seller for details.

Gotcha. Yeah, if you're not planning to buy you probably shouldn't ask them then, but when you are don't feel weird asking for another photo if you're not sure about something. :)

to me it kinda looks like maybe the weight of the fin made it flop over a little. Just my guess

He looks to me like his fins are regrowing from some damage (perhaps from spawning).

if there is a water current you might want to lower the current or no current at all, these fsh hate moving water and if its due to turbulence or whatever from bubbles then go get an air control valve so it lets just some air out so it dont cause to much current. or you can put in more plants, thatll help too
