With Lennon's passing, I wanted to give an update on Beldar and hope Thales will mention Zod's health. She is slowing down but still eating. Her color has been spotchy for over a month but she will come for at least one short pet most nights (much less time and much less enthusiasm than earlier) and I occassionally see her "dancing". She has stopped eating frozen shrimp and I almost wonder if it is because it is tough. She will happily take fiddlers (alive or dead), opened clams and thawed shore shrimp but will have nothing to do with the regular shrimp on a stick (I haven't tried handfeeding a smaller piece of it recently though and all the accepted menu items are hand fed). I am still expecting her to brood her final two weeks so I am always relieved when I find her on the tank wall each night.
