Hi all! Me and my boyfriend have not long getting our corn snake he has grew a lot since we got him we've named him Timmy! But the problem is (me) I just can't get over my fear that he is going to bite me I try to get him out every day but if he looks at me the wrong way I put him straight back in his tank or just leave him in his tank if I have'nt already got a hold of him. Is there any advice you can give me to help my fear? I want him to be a great family pet for us and I just want him to be happy as well!

I have two oscars, two red belly pacus, two jack dempseys, one black banded leporinus, one pufferfish, and one pleco in a ten gallon tank and they are doing fine! The oscars will eat anything that can fit in their mouth. Happy fish keeping!

    I sincerely hope you have something along the lines of a 900 gallon tank for when EVERY SINGLE FISH IN THAT TANK OUTGROWS IT!

    Uh, baby horses are called foals...not ponies....
  • Anonymous - 2010-10-23
    If you don't know that a male=a stallion or gelding, and a female is a mare... And that babies are foals... You really shouldn't have a mating pair... Even though these guys are really sweet and wonderful... Stallions are...well, stallions...
  • Anonymous - 2012-02-19
    Maddy, why did your mom get you a 'stallion' amd a 'mare'? If you what to breed Shires or any horses, NEVER get a stallion (unless you are a proper horse breeding stud) If you are desperate to breed your own foal, get only a mare that is over 3 years old then, get a stallion at stud to breed your mare. Hope you like the foal(s) you bred. Also, I would recommend that you sell your stallion for your sake and his. By the way: baby horses are called Foals NOT ponies!

    You really don't have to be so RUDE to her, maybe she is only 10 and just learning about horses.
  • Anonymous - 2013-02-12
    I am 12 and I've been riding for 5 years. I know what a stallion, mare, colt,filly and gelding is. If you can buy 2 horses as easily as that, and breed them, you need to learn some stuff

    I love shires too and would be so happy if I was able to have two, regardless of their gender and no matter what you call them foals are absolutely adorable!

Hi -

I've had the pleasure of sharing my home with bunnies for the past 20 years and currently have four, one of which is a beautiful light gray, spunky Holland Lop named Samson. Not one bunny has ever once had a hairball (and they certainly shed quite a bit) and they are happy and healthy. The best advice I can offer is to feed these darling creatures an abundance of hay as long as it's Timothy as it's low in protein (Oxbow is the best company out there to order hay from...it's incredibly high quality and smells unbelievably fresh...once you've tried it it's hard to go back to the usual store bought brands). The rabbits appreciate it tremendously and it is now considered very good practice by many rabbit savvy vets and rescuers to give rabbits unlimited hay daily, again as long as it's Timothy. Supplementing alfalfa or other hays in every now and then is fine but Alfalfa is too high in protein. Also check out rabbitcare.org.

    Thank you for the hay advice and rabbitcare.org. Just adopted a speckled black and white holland lop less than 6 months old and female!

I have 2 featherfins in a 55 gallon tank with a few zebra danios, glow-fin tetras, black tetras, and 2 golden algae eaters. They all get along just fine. I did have the same problems others mentioned with neon tetras disappearing, but only with neons. Featherfins just like the taste of neons apparently. The best way to introduce new fish to your tank with the territorial featherfins is to rearrange the tank. Move the plants and rocks around at the same time that you add the new fish. The confusion makes them think they are in a new area (which has the new fish), and the territory is no longer theirs. It has worked great for me for all fish except the neons. Just don't add neons to a tank with featherfins and you should be okay.

    I've actually been able to keep neons with featherfins successfully. I currently have 6 neons in my 55 gallon aquarium with 2 featherfins. But they were raised with many small fish which included 5 neons in my old 20 gallon aquarium. They usually don't get too aggressive towards bottom dwellers, but from time to time will spar with each other around the tank. But I have had 3 out of 7 kuli loaches die lately, but I don't know if it was from them or old age, but I hope you have greater luck with smaller fish with the guys!
  • Ren - 2013-01-24
    My featherfin ate 14 fresh shrimp in two days. Every weekend I would buy at least 10 and couldn't figure out where they were going. I owned it for a year before he ever came out of his cave so I call it Houdini, it had tripled in size when he finally showed up. It gets against the highest center piece and just hovers in a perfect vertical 90 and lets the bubbles go up his belly. Very enjoyable now that I see it, very playful with my 7' placo, they are like bff's, inseperable.

Hello,

I have 18 black emperor scorplings that need homes ASAP. They were born in April 2010. I bought the "mom" from a breeder in Cleveland and it turned out she was pregnant :/

They are all in a 55 gallon aquarium right now. I'd like to give away the whole thing but I'm willing to give them away individually.

    How big are your scorplings ? How much are you selling them for? If you have any males I would be interested in buying 1 or 2.

    I've been looking to breed my female emporer scorpion. I bought her a few months ago from a pet shop and I'm willing to pay for shipping if you still have your scorpions. I'd be willing to take 5 or so. I've got a nice 100 galon tank with plenty of moss and watering pans and a nice humidifier I found on amazon. Maybe hit me up :) thanks

    sorry to hear that but if so i would like to take the whole thing off your hands and give them a good home
  • Richard Carroll - 2011-10-15
    I'm very interested in buying a scorpion from you. I do want just one as I am a beginner. If you still have some left please contact me by my e-mail. I also have some questions about their habitat. I've heard many different things, but would like to hear it from someone who actually has experience. I know I keep seeing them in sand at pet stores and am now reading that is wrong for the emperor. Even if you have none left I'd still like to talk about habitats and if you might put me in touch with a breeder. What got my attention with you is the word "breeder". I want one from a breeder and NOT from the wild. I have no interest in people destroying colonies just to sale. I was looking for a female, but you saying yours was preggy when you got her kinda spooked me cause I have only a 15 gallon tank at the moment. Please contact me if you can help me out or get me in the right direction. Thanks for your time, Richard
  • Kay Taub - 2011-10-16

That is ridiculous. You don't need to get a baby unweaned to have it bond strongly to you. I bought mine at three months old and she loves me to death!! She is very well bonded to me and loves my husband as well. All you need to do is give it love and attention. This is for anybody who is reading this blog that thinks they need to buy an unweaned baby to have a strong bond. Definitely not necessary. I love my baby to death and she loves me!!
