We just bought a young female white dove. I have a concern though. Does anyone know if she will become depressed? She has no mate. She is let out of her cage daily for freedom; however, until next month she a a cage that is a bit too small. Can anyone help me with my question? Thanks

    It's hard to gauge what will make a bird depressed. Some species of doves will live in flocks while others won't. White Doves usually live in pairs, but are often alone if they don't yet have a mate.

Mollys are very cool fish. You can make your own combinations by breeding them. For example get a marbled molly and breed it with a Orange Balloon Molly and the outcome will be cool. Buy a couple and keep the male ratio to one male for two females because the male will chase females and somewhat exuast them.

I have 4 finches, two male and two female. One set very aggressive, had to separate them from the other ones. Now they have laid 5 eggs, all have hatched.
Had to remove male,was picking on mother and babies. They are now about 3 weeks old. Can I leave the mother with them after they are weened? Do I remove the nest when they can take care of themselves?

    Zebra Finch babies will be ready to leave their mother at about 4-6 weeks of age. At 6 weeks it's best to remove the young birds to their own cage.

    It sounds like there is a problem with your water quality. You can test for ammonia, nitrate, etc. to help determine what's going on with it. Also look at your filtration, it may be inadequate, and the water turning brown definitely indicates a problem.

I own a what I believe to be a male midas cichlid. I'm 95% sure he is a male. The territory displays,the attacking of everything that enters the water. The long trailing dorsal and analysis fins. Anyway mine is in a 90 gallon currently I just moved him from a 55. Now my confusion lies in were is his hump.his head is thick but it's no wider than his body. There's also no real shape from a side profile either. Is this because there's no female or am I doing something wrong? He eats fine very aggressive fairly active. Has a pond snail named turbo for a buddy. But why has this guaranteed hump not forming?

    Well, hopefully it is a Midas Cichlid. Both male and female specimens can get a slight hump, but it is usually larger in males. The hump begins to form when they are mature, usually this is at about 6 inches (15 cm). I've alsoheard that the hump develops better and faster if they are very comfortable in their environment.

I have a large yellow loach in my tank, among many other types of fish. However, when i cleaned my tank and but him back in it he seems bloated and floats to the top. I feel as if he is tired/annoyed . Iv heard they "fart" air bubbles to rid this, however i havent noticed. Help?

    It sounds like he may be 'gulping' air when he is stressed by the transfer process, which will make them look bloated until the air is dispelled. Perhaps you can leave him in the tank when you are doing maintenance. Do only regular partial a water changes while syphoning the gravel, then you won't have to move him and hopefully you won't have to deal with stress issues.

Hi, I'm new to being an aquarium hobbyist. I recently bought a 40 gallon aquarium and its running remarkably. I currently have 9 corys (3 different species...julii, emerald, and albino)n 3 red tailed tinfoil barbs and an albino BN pleco. All the fish get along quite well. But anyway, I was at my local fish store, (professional aquarists) and I noticed the african feather fin cat. They really cought my eye and I'd like to have at least 2 of them. My tank has two great homes on opposite sides of the tank and I'd have room for another cave. I know they're territorial but I'd like to see two of them in my tank. With that being said, I know I'd have to move them to a bigger tank. So my question is, how long can I have them in my 40 gal before I move them to a 55 or 75?

    Your tank, as you know, is not large enough for a single adult, as one will need about 50 gallons. Moving them will depend on how quickly they attain full size. Though you should have some time, you'll have to keep an eye on them as size depends on a number of factors including age, how comfortable the fish is, and how well it is fed. Another problem you will face though, is trying to mix it with your cory cats. That is not a good mix as it will be aggressive towards them.

    They can be fine if the tank is large enough and there are plenty of hiding places. Plants, even artificial help to provide places for retreat.

    Actually, Bettas are only aggressive towards other Bettas. I have kept them with all kinds of other community type fish.

    Its hard to say why your bird died. They live on average 12 to 14 years and are very hardy. It sounds like your bird may have been sick, because you said you were advised to start an antibiotic treatment. Presumably you told them about, or they saw, physical symptoms that indicated this type of treatment. The best way to get an answer is to have your veterinarian perform an autopsy, yet even that may or may not be conclusive.
