Rep: robbie257 has started on the right path
Default back again :(

well im back,

i came on this site ages ago concerning one of my other axies, which died

and now its deja vu again.

My healthy axie is now not eating.

And im pretty sure he has swallowed some pebbles (which are no longer in his tank)

This has been happening for ages, so the pebbles would have been in there for weeks and weeks.

Is there any hope left for him... hes really skinny and only every 3-4 days eats something.

His foot has also lost its toes, which is really quite bizzare, as there is nothing in there to eat them :S

Is he on the path of death?

If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

Hi Robbie

Have you tried putting him in the frig? That may help him if he has pebbles stuck in his digestive track.

What are your water readings? Any chance you can post some pics? How long ago did your other axies pass away? Could there be something in the water levels causing illness?
