:When I move my common snapper with the "nipped" tail to a dry tank for recuperation, is there any suggested set-ups or just a clean, dry tank? Still require a hiding spot even though he is out of the water? Thanks, Phew

Hey Phew- Every year I have some hatchling common snappers that end up with some type of tail damage ie. nipped. I don't send these out with the others as my customers consider them "B" grade. So I hold them back and raise them up a little then release them in my Snapper pond. I keep them in clean water and feed them normaly. And I have never had one where the tail didn't heal up just fine. They don't regenerate, but they heal up nice. thats just mt experience. Lynn
