I had a pair of Dwarf Powder-Blues and they really were my favorites. They played a little game every day for their supper. I would walk up and say hi and they would come right over to me and blow bubbles at me and generally act adorable under my noise for a few minutes. They seemed very smart and always friendly and they got along together pretty well, although I find most fish get a little cranky as they age. It was so difficult to have these guys reach their life expectancies that I never got Dwarf Powder-Blues again, but I still think of them very fondly and remember them. Great fish, very special.

Have 11 of these active and nice fish in my heavily planted 30 gallon. They are rambunctious dancers when they see their dinner coming and always hungry for more any time of night or day it seems. Their tank offers plenty of plants on a CO2 controller and a nice mopane bog wood root. Tankmates include two pearl gouramis and a handful of cories which they all mostly ignore in favor of thinking about food and feeding times and whether anyone walking by might have a morsel for them. Very nice to see that tank so lively again, those two particular pearls hide their lives away, so the blackskirts give the tank life now. Great fish, pleasure to have.

I have had my Bloody Parrots now for almost 4 years. Well one is not with us anymore and so I got me one other one. Its so amazing how they know who is feeding then and who takes care of them. When it is feeding time they even jump out of the water just to get the first bite. They do not like other people and when we do have someone coming over they will hide. But they love my kids and me. Even when I just walk by they are on the top waiting.( I know its food they want. LOL) But I talk to them and watch them. They always pick on each other . Not in a hurtful way just pick here pick there. They are sure funny. Thanks for reading.

Just like to add that these fish are not limited to South Australia. I have been snorkeling on the NSW coast and frequently encounter an old wife. The other posters statement is true, they are very timid and every time i see them while snorkeling they seem to hide/hang around weedbeds

I take care of 3 NZW rabbits at my work, and I can not wait until I live in a place that I can take one home with me. They have such a sweet and charming personality and can be comical too. I love that they are so gentle and love all the attention they can get. Thank you for making a website about how beautiful and sweet these large rabbits are!

Felicia is her name..... seven years since she came into our lives as a half feathered chick. I hand fed her 3 times a day for three months.....(she demanded it) She has every mood I do from silly to leave me alone. We understand each other. I have had a dog and a cat, but Greys are closer to humans.... and yes maybe it is just because they can talk, but for me there is more. She is the Perennial 5 year old human child. She is not a pet... she is my friend

Hornwort is a very attractive plant, which groups nicely. It grows readily, even under mildly unstable conditions (Dont use that as an excuse to abuse it). My only warning is dont place this in smaller tanks, because the spine-like leaves constantly fall off of the bottom stems, and grow on the top. The leaves float so are easily removed, but can clump up and slowly rot.

I have been breeding Holland Lops for some time now, and I think that they are one of the nicest types of rabbits to get. I have got six of them right now, two of them that are going to have babies soon, and they are just too sweet!
