So now that the prince of the sea has arrived it seems he can be a petulant little child when it comes to his royal hygiene. So how do we deal with such a bratty prince? When my Triton is naughty I shove him under hot water. This works to flush out his insides nicely. Then I shake him violently with his top fill open while strangling him. Once I have shaken his world apart for about thirty seconds I like to use a can of compressed air to get rid of anything that may be collected inside. Finally I set him down and ignore him for about ten to twenty minutes. (This is by no means parenting advice and should only apply to clearomizers, electronic cigarettes, and princelings of the sea.)
In all seriousness the Triton is such a versatile tank I think that this is quite a small disadvantage. On the other hand I am confident that our resident mad scientists will outdo themselves again soon enough.
P.S. Please share with us how you give your prince of the sea a bath.
