Please get it back into the fixture -- what bulb are you using? The sand is not really a good substrate - it harbors bacteria and very hard to keep clean - being shes been on it for so long I dont know if it would do any good to take her off it now -- have you every had any impaction issues w/ her being on it?It was on a fixture but I dropped it temporarily to get it closer to her - she's been on sand the full 12 Years.
I've just noticed I think she may have a problem with her spine.
I dont know unless its a calcium issue- what UVB bulb are you using? I am going to flag Tracie - shes on late at night - maybe AHBD can help here but that UVB is crucial here - we need to get that set back up properly for her in the tank --No impaction issues - I have just noticed this issue and seem to think this is what's causing her the problem does anyone have any ideas what this could be? She seems to have dislodged her spine and has a lump at the tail that I just noticed
