I have two dwarf Gouramis, 4 lyretails, 3 tetras, 2 platys, and 3 catfish in a 20 gallon tank. i have plenty of plants and hiding spots for my fish. The Gouramis are a little timid at first but once they get used to the tank they are wonderful active community fish. once in a while the gouramis will be aggressive towords each other but they are usually very peaceful fish.They are very easy to take care of and will eat from all sections of the aquarium. overall i think Gouramis are very easy to manage and very calm and peaceful community fish.

I have two Dwarf Hamster, Gus and Fluffy, and I just got a Teddy Bear Hamster, his name is Tetsuo. They are so cute and easy to take care of, even if Tetsuo wakes me up at night cause he wont stop running on his wheel =)

I have kept one of these orange-shoulder tangs for the past four years. I think it is probably one of the hardiest tangs I have ever kept - the fish eats greedily - flakes, brine shrimp, blood worms, pressed alga sheets, silver sides - whatever is in the water. It is a very easy keeper - very docile temperament. I have never seen this fish aggressive against others, or hostile to new additions to the tank - unlike my yellow tang who is very territorial. I would recommend acquiring a juvenile, and then you have the pleasure of watching it metamorphose into the adult coloration.

The fish will utilize the entire tank - constantly swimming and exploring. I have not seen mine graze - they seem to feed just on what I put in the water, plus the pressed alga held in a clip. They prefer green over brown or red. I have had one in a 75 gallon, moved to a90 gallon, and now have a young one in my 130 gallon. This is a great fish to add to your tank - and reef safe, in my experience.

I have raised harlequin macaws for fifteen years. I kept my first baby, also a few others that had unique beginnings. They are very smart, pick up new phrases quickly and so very loving. I have blue & gold, scalets and greenwings but the harlequins are my very favorite.

About a week or so after school started, I puchased Howard, my mouse. Later my sister, Jenn, got a mouse. this mouse has an awful background. It was bought as snake food, but the snake did not eat it. Then it lived with my moms friend. They have birds, ferrets, cats, dogs, fish, and lizards. That did not work out so it came to live with us and got the name milkshake. On Thursdays we are all out of the house, but before we left, Jenn left the two together. In about a month we had pink, jellybean-looking mice in Milkshakes cage. Tommorow they will be three weeks old and the mom has not done anything to hurt any of the 12 babies!

A few months ago I got a chinchilla colored netherland dwarf! She is so curious and playfull, I decided to name her Pippin. After the hobbit Pippin on The Lord of the Rings. My dad thinks she has some Cottontail in her because she has a white fuzzy tail and long fur. Her older sister is a dutch rabbit. Her name is Libby. I love my bunnies!

I have a female, tortise shell dutch rabbit! Her name is Libby. I have had her for almost a year. She has a temper, but most of the time she is very sweet and loving. I think smaller rabbits like dutch and netherland dwarves are better pets than larger ones.
