Hi Everyone,

What is happening to my open brain? I quarantined it for one week and it started to bubble up. Here are some pictures:

It might not like being on the egg crate. Try put it in a bowl of sand or feed it something meaty at night.

thanks will do. I've never seen anyone else with this bubbling problem though.

maybe too much flow? I've seen them do that when they are getting beat up by the current. Try moving it to a different spot with little or no current. Putting it on sand or other type of smooth, flat surface is a good suggestion too.
