Silverfang, I didn't really know nerites had teeth. o.O Actual teeth marks? Are you sure Ashes didn't nibble the tank rim? Maybe you have a rare vampire snail.
Blythe, I know how you feel about the uneven tank size but at least he's no longer in a tiny cup of dirty water. It might be small but it's clean. If he still refuses food, you can try frozen bloodworms or you can try soaking his pellets in garlic juice. You can either crush up garlic and mix with some tank water, then soak the pellets for a few minutes or use the juice from a jar of preminced garlic.
Hi DQ! How's the new Kindle?
Hi Tiki. I'm sorry things are so rough for you at home right now. :( I hope your mom doesn't do anything drastic.
