I purchased a Brazilian Yellowhead Tad several weeks ago and noted that its swimming was unconventional and rather erratic. Time and observation has shown that the tail at the dorsal fin starting position is slightly skewed to the tad’s left. This makes the tad swim in a barrel roll fashion when moving about. Despite this the tad is eating well and growing. I am concerned this might be a precursor for something more serious and it may be best to euthanize the tad. However, I wouldn’t want to do that if the tad was injured in some way and may morph out fine.

Any thoughts or has anyone experienced this before?

I've had 3 or 4 tads like this and not one has made it to land, but I always give them a chance. I suppose, it's a bit of curiosity on my part too...
