do I need to trim f8's beak?

Post by pufferpunk20 »

So I have two f8s that I feed snails pretty regularly, and while one is doing fine, the other, Mango, seems to have kind of a long beak. I've never had to trim a puffers beak before and frankly I don't know how to tell if she needs it. Does anyone have any pointers on how to tell? (Also posted on fishlore)

How do I reply with a picture? It keeps telling me the file is too big when I send it from my gallery.

Gosh, it's really hard to tell without a clear picture.
