I was looking for an Eclectus, male. I happened upon this (dna forthcoming) 6 month old, hand fed Severe Macaw. When Panama (since named) snuggled on my chest and whispered hello while nuzzling up under my chin, I made an immediate decision.
Smart, very adaptive to new situations & places and truly NOT a screamer or loud; it DOES depend on how it is raised and the surroundings, my heart is so gone!
I started my bird devotion with a rescued male cockatiel I had to hand feed. I loved this little zinger so much I had to share the overflow and decided on a bigger parrot (which is this Macaw). It is not terribly difficult to split time between two birds, equally, and I am having such a good experience I would love even MORE, but cannot imagine how I could divide the time so everyone got even attention and turned out this well adjusted.
I fully, enthusiastically recommend the Macaws (especially the "severe") - for their easy going nature, sweet demeanor and SNUGGABILITY : )

I have 2 cinnamon dwarf gouramis (which are a different color variation of the dwarf gourami) along with 1 paradise gourami, 2 black skirt tertas, 2 plecos, 1 dwarf suckerfish, 1 african dwarf frog, 1 female betta and 1 male platty in a 10 gallon tank(i know its a little crowded but im thinking about getting an 18 gallon soon). The dwarf gouramis get along great with other fish and usaully stick with eack other. These fish are great additions to any community tank with smaller fish.

I had 4 Dwarf Gouramis and a bunch of Tetras in a 100 litre tank with a lot of plant cover. The Dwarf Gouramis exhibited a considerable degree of aggression towards each other, and established some sort of pecking order, but generally ignored the Tetras.

Some hobbists have commented that Dwarf Gouramis are temperamentally unpredictable; they may or may not establish hierarchies.

I have two parakeets named Tuffy and Fluffy. They are greenish/blue (Tuffy) and white with sky blue on his back (Fluffy)(like a cloud). I get Tuffy out on my finger and kiss him on his beak and his side near the wing. I then turn him upside down (on my finger) and let him bight me lightly. I then kiss him again. They kiss me through the cage and also fly around. These birds are spoiled and I love them with all of my heart!

These tetras are beautiful, and in my experiene much less picky than others. Will apdapt easily to many healthy foods and peacful spececies. Many see them as dull, but with adequate lighting, they sparkle. For best overall appearence, keep with contrasting foliage such as the Java Fern. Overall my favorite fish group in the tank.

Some of my fondest fishkeeping memories came from my 5 1/2 year old Satine, a Red Cap Oranda with long serene fins. My only remark other than showers of flattery are that give them plenty of swimming space, and I myself found that each fish did best with 10 gallons per individual.
