I purchased this little guy yesterday from my local shop because I was concerned about him. The pictures are not very good he has a chunk missing from the top of his back which looks like old damage. His fin has a white marking and seems to be oddly shaped. His nose tip is also missing and this is pink and fleshy appearance. He is eating fine. Swimming is a little lop sided but he seems to be doing all of the normal things a Sterlet would. He also has no signs of disease. I have put him in my Goldfish tank as he would be eaten in my pond due to his size. Has anyone got any ideas what may have happened?

more than likely mishandling or something spooked them and they cut them self . At that age and size adds are against fish to survive thus why mom lays 10's of thousands of eggs
