Baby Greyband gegurg problems...

Hi all! I'm dealing with some issues with a baby Greyband - just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas for me...

This baby is pretty much a fresh hatchling. It weighs 6 grams. I've had it for over a month now, and it has eaten twice, but regurged twice.

Today, after a 2 week break from feeding, I got it to eat a fuzzy mouse tail... I figured the smaller meal would reduce the chance of further regurges... Up to this point, I have given it day-old pinks (those were the regurg food items).

It has lost some weight, but with frequent soakings, it seems to pull through each day...

Being this is my first greyband, I don't know what else to do besides treat it like a sick baby corn :-}

Mark
