Snowflake lost it's nose...

You know those two yellow things sticking out of most snowflake eels' noses? Mine doesn't have them anymore...he's still eating fine, and the water levels are all normal. Should I be concerned? Anyone know what those yellow thingies are for?

I would take a close look at your water source. Impurities in the water can damage delicate tissues in the nose that are used for smelling food. Do you use RO water? A large water change using purified water may help. Make sure that the impurities are removed before you add the salt and let the saltwater mix and aerate for 24+ hours before use. Have you ever added copper to the aquarium?

Cheers,
Terry B
