Well, I think I found a problem with him. He has kind of been acting like Aragorn did before Aragorn passed away. I haven't been too worried though because his colors have always been good. Well tonight I took a good look at him and took him out of the tank and he just wouldn't move much even if I moved him. AFter close inspection I noticed that I think 2 or more of his right ribs are broken. I don't know how it happened (although he is clumsly and has fallen off of branches before). But I can see on his side that he has 2 very hard points where his ribs go, then below the points sort of a flat spot that is more concave than the rest of his side. Then at the bottom of the same area he has 2 mroe little hard points. The hard points to me feel like the end of a bone or something like that. Is there anything I should do? I don't really know what a vet could do because he is so tiny and there are no exotic vets in my area, just dog and cat vets. Do you think it will heal corky like that or if the ribs will pull themselves back into place if that is what is the problem? Thanks for any help from anyone!

Joe
