He's eating wonderfully, he's just a lot shorter than my other babies, my other 2 are longer and have proportional heads, he's got a big head but a short bodyIs it eating? I don't see much in the shortness thing. Still to early to tell he will probably grow into that head of his.
He can straighten out fine, he looks like a little log, he's just really stumpy and disproportionate compared to my other 2. Short bodies make me sad cuz often times defects like that hurt them cuz their organs outgrow them, idk if it's the same with bichir, but it's common in flowerhorns and stuff.I’m not really seeing the defect here, is he able to straighten his body? Sort of just looks like he had a big meal, regardless I wouldn’t worry. And SBs for some reason hold higher value in some circumstances as they’re just different. Either way if it’s eating it’s living
Soooooo, yall were right! I was just being a worrywart and Titan is indeed growing into his huge ass head! On another note, they've all started to love on each other and even made a little poly pile!! Soooo, all's well that ends well!!
Sorry for the loss.It will be something very random and that takes a bichir if it’s not water parameters. For instance, found yesterday morning with no visible issues or signs, and was dead in the evening with something looking like an infected gill. I added a turtle ledge a few days ago because he liked to bask near the surface, now I’m wondering if he got snagged on something. Maybe even heater burn.
Point is it’ll likely be very unexpected that takes yours guys
