bah! My guy, Karloff... is a rescue... he's used to the poor water quality... now he gets dechlorinated filtered water..... the people who had him before.. they gave him regular water.
I have my tank set up with Gravel and water.... he could possibly burrow and drown... but he's not that dumb... never burrows... just covers his hind legs in gravel. We're getting ready to replace the gravel with flukers frog moss.
Karloff's tank is small, we're getting ready to upgrade...right now, he's about as big as a tennis ball....and could get bigger if I start him on Mice.. we feed him goldfish, the previous family only gave him worms and crickets....so he is malnurished...we're working on it *laughs*
Does your Paccy eat his substrait? Karloff took a HUGE poo after we took out his old substrait...and he pooed out some old rocks and believe it or not, the poor thing passed a MARBLE!
Now, I feed him with tongs, cuts down on the ammount of substrait he ingests.
