I love bubble eye fish too but I got a bigger problem then getting his bubble stuck in the filter. It stuck twice, shrunk until not seen and then it grew back. But alas, it grew back twice the size. So my bubble eye is very healthy but the sacs have since grown so big that he cannot see properly. He cannot even breathe properly as the sacs keep obstructing his mouth, and most importantly, the sacs are too heavy for him. He can hardly swim and that means he has no strength to swim up for food. Guys, really appreciate if anyone out there got a remedy. I love my bubble eye and do not want him to die like that.

I had a Holland Lop named Ishi. She was the best pet I ever had. We were able to litter box train her after she was 8wks old. She also would run up to us when we called her and give us kisses when we gave her treats. She recently passed away, and we think a hawk attacked her. We miss her very much. Her personality was priceless.

This website is cool! I have a tip.
If he or she bites, I say put her back into it`s cage to settle down for about an hour.

I have a four year-old minilop, and she is definitely one of the cutest rabbits Ive ever seen. The little tuft of really soft fur on the backs of their heads is so wonderful to pet. If you want a minilop, ADOPT ONE. I work at a shelter. There are too many bunnies for there ever to be enough homes for them all. We get a lot of lops, minilops, and all sorts of bunnies in every day.

Rabbits are NOT the ideal pet for all children, no matter what breed, even minilops. Yes, many are good with children, and calm, and gentle, etc. But kids can lift rabbits up incorrectly, hold them awkwardly, scare them, and they may even drop them. These are all things that are very stressful and even dangerous for a prey animal. Before you get a rabbit make sure you know what you are getting into. Check out more info at www.rabbit.org.

Even though this is a small breed, they need just as much space as the larger bunnies. They are just bursting with energy, and love to tear around the room doing the Bunny-500. My friend just adopted a pair, and they are just the cutest things. They are not really good for small children as they are not as sturdy (they can be easily hurt) or mellow as some of the larger breeds may be. Check out www.rabbit.org for more info on everything rabbit!

It makes me sad to here that these rabbits are often given as Easter presents. I was given a Polish Dwarf when I was eight years old, and little Oliver was not even weaned yet! He was very weak and very sick, but no one told me how to take care of a rabbit. Polish Dwarves are very small, very good little escape artists, and one night Oliver managed to get out of the bin he was in and under the bedroom door. The cat bit him (luckily, my mom heard the commotion), but the stress and subsequent infection killed Oliver in less than 12 hours. I was devestated. Please, DO NOT EVER give anyone a rabbit (even if it is your own child) unless you know they will be going to a good forever home. (www.rabbit.org)

I have never, EVER felt anything as soft as a Rex rabbits fur. If only they would let you cuddle them more! I was going through some of my grandmothers old things, and we found a winter coat, trimmed in Rex fur. I nearly started crying. My mini-Rex is the reason I will NEVER wear fur.

my dad has had a giant gourami for the past 6 years and he is roughly 20" long even though he is a old fish he has still got a temper to match a young fish he will not let us put any other fish in with him. We had salmon tail sharks with him that were nearly as big as him and he even killed them. So if you plan on having one of these fish i advise anyone to give them their own tank. you could even put its tank near the tv, Moby (our gourami) loves watching the tv.

I have a grey cockatiel that i got from an auction about 4 years ago. He was pretty good with handling when we first got him, but after we put him in with a female he wasnt. We bred them but the female died shortly after. Only one of the babies survived. Tango(my greys name) took care of the baby until the night it passed away which was about 7 months after birth. Now i have trouble getting him out to handle him. He is really nice and talkative in the cage, but when i finally get him out he gets really nasty and bitey. It takes about 10 min. for him to calm down. I dont know if i just need to handle him more, if it is just bad genes, or what.
