While i'm posting this on the disease fourm, I had another question about Eugene. I think he was/is a tail biter, i heard this was common in ct? I don't know if you can tell by this pic but let me know what you think. When we got him his cup had black particals in it. It looked like debrie and none is sticking to him. It came across as if he had biten portions of his tail off and spit it out. He seemed pretty stressed in the cup when we got him and has seemed to have clamed down a lot since then. He is now in his own 2.5 gal bowl and seems shy but curious and otherwise healthy. Should I be worried?

He does look like he may have been tailbiting, probably out of boredom and stress, and also possibly to remove infected parts of his tail himself. Keep the water as clean as possible to prevent any infection and if it seems like his tail is slow in regenerating or is getting infected, you can use aquarium salt, one tsp per gallon. Don't use if he has live plants; instead put him in a QT for his salt treatment. He's a very lovely multicolored CT boy, very handsome.

Good, I already put aquarium salt in his bowl when I set it up for him. He seems to be doing well, he still hasn't eaten this morning but I'm chalking that up to still being nervous from the move last night.
