Oi. 10 teaspoons?
Looks like I'm gonna have to go buy myself some more aquarium salt. I only have a little jar (it maybe has 6-8 teaspoons in it) that I've never used. Maybe what I'll try first is the 2 tablespoon method. They seem to be doing fine withoutthe salt, but if it's good at preventing infections, then why not give it a shot, 'eh?
On another note... my boy Nanners at work was taught that to get his food, he has to jump out of the water and grab it off my pinky finger (they are cleaned before!). I get my pink just a tad wet, then I put a pellet on there, and he litteraly leaps out of the water and chomps it off my finger. He also likes to playfully nibble at my pinky when I dip it in the water. He likes to play "catch the finger" too, and I swear that he's got some dog in him! If I just put my finger in and hold it there, he'll lovingly come over to it and stroke himself against it like I'm petting him. It's the sweetest thing I've ever seen! He's such a cutie!
