Taz starting to bite his tail

Ugh, I woke up this morning and Taz has a small circle cut out of his tail. I know that's the telltale sign of a tail biter. He has a lot of places to explore and I have no idea why he is.

Could be because he is long finned. Crayola started chewing back his tail because it always grows, and it was weighing him down!

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

That would suck! But, at least you'd know he was healthy :)

At least it takes like a week to heal. :)

Exactly :p keep him happy and healthy, and that's about all you can do for tail biters, Crayola is in a cycled 10 gallon with a heater, fed well, and he hasn't gotten an infection.
