    Re: Puffer dentistry

    Got 'er done!

    I noticed today that the top left tooth was starting to get into his bottom lip. ┬*I decided to bite the bullet and just do it. ┬*My plan was to have details for you guys, but it took much longer for him to go out than I expected and I stopped watching the clock. ┬*I only used 1/4 tsp for 5 liters of water, and 1 tsp of Sodium BiCarbonate to fix the pH. ┬*If I ever have to do it again, I might consider upping it a little. ┬*However, after the clipping I put him in another bucket with fresh water that had been aerating during the whole process. ┬*He perked right up and I put him back in his tank. ┬*

    I know I didn't clip them as short as I could have, but at least now they aren't digging into his lip and hopefully he'll be able to eat crunchy things!

    Glad THAT'S over. ┬*

    Congrats on your successful dentistry! ┬*It was probably more traumatic for you than the puffer. ┬*I'm sure if there's a next time it won't be so bad - at least now you know what to expect. ┬*There probably would have been other things to deal with if they'd been trimmed too short, glad you took the cautious route.

    Congrats! Now that's hardcore. Did your puffer's HMO cover that, or was it considered "cosmetic"? ┬*
