Thank you so much for the feedback on treating the swollen tail tip. You are much too kind!
I am keeping the erectus isolated in a 5 gallon bucket with neomycin and triple sulfa as your suggested. However, I am worried because he has not eaten for the past two days since starting the antibiotic treatment. I tried to tempt him with his favorite food…live ghost shrimp, but he is not interested so far. (Yhis disturbs me since he has always been a great eater).
I understand the concept of tube feeding, but how many days should I wait before attempting this? I am hoping that the antibiotics may kick in and he will eat on his own, but if not how long should I wait before trying this? And any advice on how many ml of liquified food I should tube feed to a 7"male erectus.
I hope I am not being a bother…thank you so much for your gracious advice!
