I keep various things, including Tincs, Leucs, Vitts, Bicolors, and some "locals". All are contained seperately with seperate equipment/feeding tools, etc. My Tincs are always a bit thin in appearance after about 8 months. 1 of 3 keeps weight fine, but the other 2 it seems no matter the feedings stay a bit "elongated" in appearance. Not like death's door thin, but just not right. Could this be growth patterns, and things will balance? Thanks so much!

Title made me a little nervous, was gonna tell you you're on the wrong forum :p Yeah any time parasites are suspected you should get fecals done - woulda been better to get them done before they went into their permanent tanks and contaminated them but get them done now anyway.

Flesh value is noted in anurans at the rear crown of the cranium and dorsal 'roof' and pelvis.

even in 'angular' sp the healthiest specimens are not sharply demarcated these areas.
