I am a college student and I decided that my room needed a goldfish to brighten up the place, but due to Toxic fumes from a fire my roomate caused he only lived for a day. I went out and got two new ones, and they are doing great. Many people dont agree with where I keep them, but I think their homes are festive. One is in a Martini glass and the other is in a Wine glass. But dont worry, they each have a pebble in there for scenery!! So its just like the ocean....They both love their homes and I am just about ready to name them, I am thinking Pixie and Nixie!

I have 4 of these unusal guys & they are a constant source of amusement from trying to find them in the sand to watching them after lights out. I got them whilst looking for tankmates for my Green Spotted Puffer. I wanted a fish that would clean up the puffers leftovers but would not cause a problem as puffers are notoriously agressive, the answer was certainly Banjo catfish!

Before deciding to purchase a mate/friend for your budgie take note; many budgerigars, once given a feathered friend, will not be as friendly as they once were. They will still continue to sit on your hand, etc, but may stop talking to you.

Also when training a budgerigar to speak DO NOT give it a mirror, it may ignore you. The main reason they are so friendly and talkitive is due to them believeing that they are human, like their owners. They then mimic and interact to gain your love, attention and affection. With a mirror they believe that there is another bird in the cage, and will interact with the reflection rather than you.

Another tip on teaching budgerigars to talk. Once the bird is trained to sit on you (and not fly away) take it into a dark, quiet room, with no distractions for you or the bird, and procede to repeat the phases you wish it to learn. Also talking in a voice higher than usual (but still clear) and a tad slower than usual may help.

And like most animals using food rewards and positive reinforcement will aid in the training process. Small pieces of apple, corn kennels and millet sprays are some examples of food treats and giving the bird positive attention and allowing it the play outside (fly around a safe and enclosed area) are examples of positive reinforcement which yield positive results.

I just got my male hedgie today at 8:00. It was a birthday present from my parents. His name is chester. He is such a wonderful pet and is pretty friendly already after about an hour. He makes weird clicking noises. He is about a year old and he was $120.99.

I have a parakeet of this type. He is green, blue, yellow and black and squalks when there is a lot of noise or music playing or can hear other birds outside. His name is Jesse and he is a good pet. He loves to get out of his cage and fly around the house.
