Re:Injured Snout


Dear Peter,

Thank you for the detailed response. It sounds like the injury is due to some mechanical problem rather than a parasite. His tank mate is showing no signs of feeding difficulties. In fact I have a hard time target feeding the injured male before the female can swoop in and snatch the shrimp. And both do not show any breathing irregularities.

It does worry me that his feeding problems have been going on for about two-three weeks now. But it sounds like there isn’t much I can do to speed that process along. I found smaller sized mysis shrimp that I’ve been feeding them both lately. The injured male can usually gets a few down, after repeated strikes. I’ll just continue with this and look out for snout rot. Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

One other thing, what is the reference on the paper you sited in your response?
