I got two pyramid butterfly fish 5 days ago they are both eating like pigs but in the short trip from picking them up and getting them to the tank one of them i believe suffered some damage to its mouth is this something that will heal on its own? doesn't seem to be getting any worse from the day i got them

i actually read this happens to this fish a lot when in transport

Should heal. Adding melafix to tank should help

Have you ever had an algae outbreak so bad that you had to break the tank down and start over?
