Viva, there are articles and diet suggestions to prevent tumors. My sister has had rats for like ... over 10 years I think and she has tailored a homemade diet (bulk barn and sunseed lab block mix) to suit their exact needs. She doesn't get tumors in her females. Actually, she never has medical problems with her rats. She's like a goddess. lol

I know, I just came from petco because I had to get Bellerophon some daphnia. The shelves are so empty now because I think so many have passed away. :[ One of my favorites, a brilliant red king betta, had hole in the head I think...and I did not see him there today. But there was this sweet little female, however, I am doubly worried for her since it seems not many people get females and I often find them dead there. There was also poor betta with his fin badly ripped and floating in the water. It was just... a very sad scene. I almost want to just go ask if I can take care of them for free. I told one boy there a while ago they all needed a water change, and he agreed...but I don't think it happened. :[
