Turns out when I went over to pick another in person, his rosies were in deli cups with water containers and damp aspen substrate. The room itself was already somewhat humid. Poor rosies were out of their element.

No wonder. Every rosy I checked in those cups had the same symptoms. Every one. Apparently I was wrong - this is not mouthrot - the "pus" is mucous. Respiratory infection perhaps. Makes the throat area swollen just under the jaw.

He said his helper, unbeknownst to him, had watered all the deli cup rosies for the last week or more, and that accounted for the problems. He also said they would recover in time when he moves them to dry cages.

He must be speaking some truth, because they were not all that tiny for 2010s in deli cups, so they must have been doing well up to the last month or so.

But yeah, I got my money back. At least the error was found.
