Repairing a Pectoral Fin

Postby Russell Peters » January 9th, 2017, 5:42 pm

This Kohaku had it's leading ray separate from the rest of the fin. This is a 26" Kohaku so this bone is quite large and there was no way it was going to rejoin the rest of the fin by itself. I cleaned it up and sutured it in place. After a few weeks it should be strong enough to have the suture removed. It should heal very nicely.

Nice spacing!

I don't think my finger got stitches that nice.
