Or to me, it doesn't.



At the very top is a bolus, but what I'm worried about is the two gooey white blobs underneath that. I found them by the mouth of my adult P. antinous this morning. She's been acting sluggish and lazy the past couple weeks, but I chalked that up to premolt, which she's been in for a few months. I suppose something like nematodes would come to mind, but an inspection of the enclosure didn't reveal anything that would raise suspicion (to the naked eye under a flashlight, anyway). I bought her from a (more so than most) reputable LPS at the beginning of January so I'm assuming she's WC; the guy at the store wasn't sure himself. Hopefully she's not ill. Any comments are welcome.

Yeah, there was nothing noticeable around the mouth.

Yeah, melted marshmallow is the first image I conjured also. I only feed her large crickets. Thinking of making the switch to dubias but not sure if I want to have to set up another feeder habitat.
