    NIce picture:) Well, the rule of thumb is to not handle them for 48 to 72 hours after feeding, depending on the size of the prey. Basically if you can still see a lump, then wait longer. Biting is from one of two things, either there is food around or the snake is feeling threatened. I would guess the second one. It's in a brand new environment, is young (babies tend to bite more than adults), and doesn't really know you yet. So be patient and gentle and you should be fine.

    These are even better pictures to see your beautiful snow corn snake. And yeah, it sounds like he's still a bit nervous. But they adapt pretty quickly, as you are finding out:)

    Thanxs for that I got to handle it last night it tryed to bite me but I waited until she tunred around . Once in my hand it was ok , it was squeezing my fingers quit hard is this normal or was it it felt threatened
  • Callum Ryan - 2014-08-19
    The squeezing is normal they are just trying to hold on. Think about it like you're a tree for them and that your fingers and other body parts and like branches so they just want to feel safe. :)

Hello, Everything I read about ringneck doves tell me that they dont live in the wild, but they live in the wild here in Tuscumbia Alabama. I have homing pigeons and sometimes ringneck doves visit and eat the scrap seeds that my pigeons spill. Also mourning doves visit too. The ringnecks are much larger than the mourning doves. I watch them at a very close distance with binoculars and can see the black markings on their necks. Maybe someone let some escape sometime in the past here in Tuscumbia but now I have seen them all over town. Tuscumbia is the birthplace of Helen Keller and I have seen the ringneck doves there at this historical site also. Just thought I would pass along this little bit of info to those who like ringneck doves. Maybe you can come visit this historical deep south town and possibily see some ringneck doves too! Also this area is rich with American Indian History if you are interested. Thanks, Danny DeLano

    Hi, Danny. What you see in your yard is a specious called the Eurasian Collared-Dove. It is not the same species as the domesticated Ringneck Dove, though they are closely related.

Heniochus black/white/yellow bannerfish/ butterflys elongated dorsal fin is losing the filament. Gray patches on banner. Fish not as active today and did not eat. Checked ammonia, nitrate, phosforus. All normal. I do 5 gallon water changes on 75 gal every other day. The fin still has half of the filament on and the other half is just a thin bare thread.

    Hi, did your heniochus recovered from its dorsal fin infection? if so what tretreatment did you use? hope you reply and the fish is well.
  • Fredy Villalon - 2014-09-01
    Hi im having a similar problem and was wondering if he recovered? If so what treatment did you use? I hope you reply soon thanks.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-09-04
    This sound like a bacterial infection, like Tail and Fin Rot, which besides having disintegrating fins, can also show up with gray patches on the skin.
  • Nathan - 2014-09-21
    Probably a bacterial infection. Make sure all your filtration is running smoothly and do daily 20% water changes until it clears up. Best of luck to your fish!

Remember: these fish are NOT moorish idols!!! I've never had these fish but I purchased a moorish idol (very similar looking fish) a month ago. They are EXTREMELY difficult! I've managed to keep him alive after 2 weeks of not eating, ick, and stress problems from my hawkfish. He is finally looking better but not worth the risk, not to mention these are half the price of moorish idols and MUCH easier to keep alive.

    Who's sorry im new to this I thought I was filling out a profile or something. Anyway what I wanted to say was that I've had a falco hawkfish for nearly a year now. He's fine with all the fish that were in the tank before him, but rather agressive with the fish that came in after his arrival. He bullied the dottybacks to death, but gave up on the larger moorish idol after a few days, who ive had for a month now and is thriving. I recommended getting them after adding your smaller and more delicate fish. They eat shrimp but are usually good with shelled animals (hermit crabs, snails, etc.). They are great fish and I highly recommend them to anyone who has a tank with larger fish. (P.s., theyre not mean, it's just their nature. Just because you ate a hamburger for lunch yesterday doesn't make you mean because you ate "the poor cow." Just sayin)

    Well, these fish will generally reach between 6 - 8 inches (15 - 20 cm) in the aquarium. It sounds like you may have some fish interested in breeding, which can account for the lip-locking behavior.
  • Eric Boats Hardy - 2014-09-19
    so you saying the lip lock is male vs female or male vs male
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-09-21
    It's generally males that fight to establish territory, but I have seen female gouramis get aggressive at times too. Don't know who's tusselling in your tank.
