red specks on tank wall?? Empty red specks on tank wall??

Post by housemouze Sat 03 Apr 2021, 8:30 pm

hi all, ive been keeping an eye on my three mice but later today i noticed some red specks on the tank wall! im not sure if theyre bloodstains since they were pretty far apart from eachother, and surely there'd be bloodstained betting too right?? im still pretty worried though. Sad i've picked up all of my girls to inspect for injuries and i couldnt see anything. could it just be stains from something, probably poop hitting the wall bc they like to poop while running on their wheel? or should i seperate them? please help

If they don't appear injured (and you've not noticed any fighting) I wouldn't think it was blood and separate. Could be a number of things, especially if there's any dye or red in their foods.

i've only noticed regular squabbles, but ive never seen blood from any of them, even before i adopted my third. there is red dye in some of their food, so i suppose that could be it?

That does make sense! If their feces hit the wall and there was red dye in it, that for sure could have caused it. Keep an eye on them, though.
