Was cleaning his 150g today and noticed someone had been chewing the silicone in the corner - i had been hearing sounds from that direction but discounted it….

obviously going to up his food a bit and plan to move home to Acyrlic tank this weekend-

Tank - you’ll think i need to reseal? it’s only this one seam so far - 10” or so

Just cosmetic...nothing to worry about.
makes me sleep better, thanks !

going to hold off on the transfer then and see if increased feeding helps -

Well...perhaps I should have added "so far..."

If he keeps nibbling further and further into the corner, then it might become a concern. So definitely watch him closely.
