    injury to new bta

    of course I know that they will move around until they find a spot they like, I just figured it would be somewhere in the front of the tank of course. so, when he disappeared, I went looking, had to move around some rocks to find him way in the back, already partially attached to a rock. I took the whole rock and moved it, planning to find a similarly adequate place. In doing so, the rock he was on fell against another. I didnt seem TO ME too hard a bump, buy it is just a baby!!! He has shriveled and hios mouth is haning open. He hasnt expelled his zoo, but there has been some mucus and likely food expelled. I moved him away from flow and much light. What do you think are my chances and is there anything more I can do?

    Yeah, they're east to make mad, but it actually takes a lot of physical injury to really do one in.

    Don't worry too much. Mine crawled into the sureflow modded maxi jet and shredded itself up not long after arrival. It made it, now it's grown from about 3 inches to over a foot in diameter, sometimes close to 18 in.
