So, oddest predicament I came home to. This fella, I noticed had something in his mouth. I fed everyone in the tank, and he dashed up in a distressing manner, then stayed at the surface where I saw his faceplate extended and something sticking out. Taking a closer look I realized it was a piece of java moss
that has gone from his mouth and through his gill.
My question is, what can be done? This fella is being jarred due to his problem, he is a little panicked, and seems uncomfortable as he keeps trying to dislodge it from his gill
No bloating, no pineconing, no clamped fins, completely fine other than this shouldn't have eaten that
So, what now? It looks uncomfortable, but I am not sure if I would damage anything by removing it (putting him under with clove oil and using fine tipped tweezers).
Who knew moss was dangerous?
