My Ryukin is about 1/2 now. And just rating today he can't keep swimming or up in the tank. He tries to stay level but he sinks to the bottom and lays upside down. Can someone help me with what's wrong with him? ): Please and thank you!

    Swim bladder is a common problem with the ryukin goldfish. Jungle used to make a pond fungus eliminator that was great for this issue. Unfortunately, Jungle products discontinued this product (which came with alot of upset from breeders and hobbyists). frozen peas that have been thawed and fed to the goldfish seems to help some.

    Try feeding him shelled green peas. Works best if you thaw frozen ones. Do this for at least one day, or until he starts swimming right side up.

    I own 2, a calico which is over 6 inches, the other a red about 4 inches. I always notice that the calico always starts acting strange and sluggish when the filters need a good rinse. After I clean the filters it's back to normal. The other day I thought I was losing him, he was just staying towards the bottom and not swimming straight. The other fish was getting underneath him and holding him up because he could not swim right or stay up. I quickly cleaned another tank that I have and got it ready for him. I put both in there not wanting to separate them. He has been fine ever since. I think the water he was in was the culprit. It looked clean in the tank but wasn't. I was so scared to lose him, I've had them for about a year now. The smaller one never has these problems. Now I am making sure the water is kept really clean. Hope my experience helps you. It's worth a try.

I just got two love birds, a male and female, does anyone know why the male regurgitates its food and feeds the female? I have noticed this happens about 2 times a day. And also how do I know when they are going to have babies? Thanks.

Can I get one or two Niger Trigger fish in my 55gal tank? Will they bother my two clowns, snowflake eel, and my African red starfish?

I rescued ROXI a Longcoated Chihuahua/long coated Daschund...she is my shadow and she sticks to me like Velcro. Very loyal...smart...spoiled...and she ain't going nowhere. My question is with this mixture do I need to be concerned with other health issues? She weighs 16 lbs---9 inches tall. One blue eye...just curious.

We live in a very rural area but have commuter traffic on our 2 lane road that runs behind our home. It also seems to be a location where many animals have been dumped over the years. My wife found a 5 week old kitten in our yard last Nov. The wife brought her in and put her down, when she spotted me she dashed across the kitchen ran up me and sat on my shoulder, I have been adopted. She is my constant companion when I'm home, eats what I eat, sleeps on or next to me every night, gets quite upset when I leave and meets me at the door when I return and plays fetch better than any dog I've had. Shes a keeper.

I have 2 red tail botias in with my African Chiclids. They hold their own so they don't get messed with too much. But I noticed them shimmy and shaking today and one keeps rolling over on its side when it's next to the other one. I read they haven't bred in captivity yet so I'm not sure what all that's about.

We had our dusky conure for seven years before discovering he was a she - an egg. She is a VIP in our household but when we were out at work she was lonely and we were guilt ridden. We'd researched for years, introducing a companion but advice was mostly negative, even from a local bird sanctuary. 7 years later we adopted an unwanted male dusky conure, 5 years old. They were kept in separate cages, next to each other and had limited contact for 4 months, they tolerated each other you could say. Suddenly they clicked one day. They are so happy. Seeing them now confirms how important it is for birds to have a companion. We went with our instincts and thankfully it was right to do so.

Hello, I just got my second Parakeet,a Budgie.yesturday. When I first pulled out of the parking space that I was in after buying my keet. He was perched on my finger verry close to the window of my car. Then after 8 minutes, He went to the top of my sterring wheel. It was verry funny. The bird was not afraid of anything. He was first facing oncomming traffic. Then he turned toward me. When I had to make a sharp turn, he started to go down, I had to put him in one of my hands, That was after I put him on the steering when again. He rode there most of the way home, 15 miles away from our home, Then we went to the drive thru at the bank. To get new pet toys. He was again on top of the steering wheel, until we went back home again.... If this were a Story A would call it driving miss tweety...
