View Full Version : Golden nugget

New golden nugget is eating well but every so often he shakes like he is trying to get something off him. Is this normal or should I be worried. Any and all information would be appreciated.

I can't say as I've seen mine shake.. though he sometimes has to wiggle and I guess taste test another spot.

I hope that's all my nugget is doing. Thanks

mine will shake to 'burrow' in the sand and to get under logs and such. do you have a sand substrate? he could be just foraging for food or shelter.

No it's gravel. I've already lost a green phantom and don't want to lose this guy.

Do you notice any white fuzz or white spots on him?

No his color looks good and looks healthy. Just shakes every so often.

could be internal parasites because almost all gold nuggets are wild caught to my knowledge.
