That's exactly what I think was happening..... Since it was purchased at a frag swap, who knows what kind of stresses it may have gone through prior to the trip home. That's why, IMO
, if you want to buy a nem, you should get it from a store. If they're worth their grain, they'll let you put a deposit on it so you can observe it for a while, but that's still no guarantee...... many nem owners can have theirs for months, only to wake up one morning with a nuked tank, not realizing the nem was slowly dying the whole time. IMO
, nems are one of those creatures that are very cool to look at, but really not worth the risk unless you really
know what you're doing.
