My guy, dane, who had parasites a few weeks ago, recovered 100% No more flashing/clamping/lethargy and is acting 100% himself. He had also decided to let his tail grow back and it was looking beautiful (he's an OHM). But, I just went to feed him, and voila! Tail destroyed. Argh! I just don't get it!! Nothing has changed except that I started feeding them a higher quality food (which you'd think would make them happy)! And all of my HMs are biters! They are all in cycled tanks, most of them divided, and they all bite. I do partial WCs once a week, I add AQ salt, temp is between 80-84 (because I was treating for external parasites), I use prime, etc. ARGH!!! They are all from Petco, so may not have the best "family trees" which might make them a bit neurotic, but seriously?? All my HMs? ARGGGGGGGGGGGH!! That's why I am giving up on HMs!! I hate seeing them bite their tails!!
I am so frustrated!!
