"Horatio and his teeth!! Following on from the overfeeding incident Horatio seemed off his food and was a nasty grey colour and not his usual interactive self. On looking at his face he appeared to be all teeth, his top teeth touching his bottom (GSP s have 4 teeth/beak for crunching shells). Googling puffer teeth showed I would need to trim them for him to eat or he would starve! Fearing he would die anyway I carried out the following procedure. I used a dish about 2 inches deep containing his tank water, about 1/2 pint, to which I added 3 drops of clove oil. I placed him into dish and gently rocked the dish until his fins stopped moving and he rolled onto his side. Then I fished him out in a net trimming his teeth with cuticle cutters (heart stopping stuff), steady hand required and not for the faint hearted! Once I had trimmed back a suitable amount I placed him back into his tank still in the net with the filter water on him until there was movement. About 20 minutes later he was swimming around. A day later he was looking a lot less grey and is now his playful self."
