    Somewhat like lockjaw, mouth looks very strange on my karashi. Can it be helped?

    Bro CA,

    Sorry to burst your bubble..

    This one no hope of recovering...

    They won't die, but will grow slower as they can only feed on small pellets.

    Still can keep as pet.

    Uncle Jerome,
    Thanks for you input. Haha no worries, my intention is to keep for viewing pleasure only, so growth for this one is not an issue.

    Agree with Jerome, I dont think can be cured the mouth shape. One of my sanke was like this after injured from jump out of pond. Later it recovered and become heavy eater. But the mouth still remain the same.

    Bro. I have a Dainichii Showa similar. Pls try to ensure its not mouth rot. I treated mine and its mouth rot. It survived but the shape of the mouth cannot be reversed..

Howdy, Stranger!
