    Broken Dorsal

    Hello All
    I have a kohaku that has a broken dorsal. The leading ray las literraly broken in half and is now shorter than the other rays.
    Will this grow back? If I cut the leading ray and cleaned it up would this enable it to grow back toi its original form?
    How long will it take to grow back
    Thanks
    Quinton

    It is unlikely that it will mend. If cut, there may be some growth but it will not return to its orh=ginal state/proportion to the other rays. Sorry
