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!!

My rainbows spawned yesterday (30/4/12) and it seems the female is doing all the hard graft whilst tthe male is standing gaurd and casually chasing other fish away from the female and eggs. the female certainly puts the male in his place when his attention drops slightly. I've bred these fish many times over the years and I find them amazing little characters in everey way

what is the best way to treat ich for a Green Spotted Puffer? and also, my puffer is just a baby about an inch long. Should i treat him for ich in the 30 gallon tank he's in right now?(with a couple minnows) and ghost shrimp) or should i treat him in my extra 10 gallon? which is best.

    You have to be very careful treating this fish with ich medications, as they are scaleless and very sensitive to any chemical treatments. The best way to treat these fish is by slowly raising the tank temperature to about 80 degrees and adding some aquarium salt. Ich is a parasite that cannot survive above about 73 degrees. However, to completely eliminate the ich, you must maintain the tank at the higher temperature for at least 10 days. This is because the parasite will be in the tank in various stages of development from larvae to maturity, and you want to elimate it totally. With this treatment the minnows should be fine, but I don't know what effect the increased temperature may have on your ghost shrimp. You may want to move them to the other tank.

    Thankyou so much! I don't see him scratching on things anymore, i did also remove them all for 3days and put ich medecine(for other fish but not scaleless fish) and let it get in there to kill the ich and cleaned it all out before returning them, the thing is, the temp is always 80deg-84deg. Even at one point the temp was 87-88 just me trying despratley to kill the ich! because I had a fish wich recently died Green Spotted puffer about 3 inches, he always scratched but never grew white spots. he didnt have any other marks or things that shouldnt be there or look weird. He eventually died of ich but i tried everything with raiseing temp to half dose ich medecine, it just wouldnt die, a period of a month or more. :( Do you know why this happend? why the ich wouldnt die at 87-88 degrees for more than a week and a half,I dont understand what I did wrong and miss this fish ;'(

    Your fish's death is truly a mystery. But your story about the danio is very cute... I can't stop laughing as I picture him!
  • Sarah Wheeler - 2014-08-07
    Also, I dont know the salanity or whatever, but i put about 2 tablespoons per gallon or marine salt(not aquqrium salt) because these fish are brackish, and hs only a baby still so its just a bit. Im not sure if youre allowed to mix marine salt and aquarium salt? and will that even be okay? (omg this is so cute all my danios jumped out except one and since he cant follow other danios as they like too hes following my baby puffer everwhere he goes! just an extra word cause that is so cute I thought you wouldnt mind to hear haha.

    So sorry to hear about your Black Moor. It is possible the other fish could have eaten him, but if it has been a compatible community tank, it most likely only occurred at night, and probably only if the fish had already died.

Having this sweet dog is like another kid in the house. We have to 'spell' OUT, WALK, PLAY, FOOD, jeez I could swear he has learned our language better than someone using Rosetta Stone.

  • Mary Goodwill - 2013-03-24
    That is so funny...just like my long haired. Sometimes it is like she even knows what I am thinking! I never mention going to the vet but when that day comes she hides when I say let's go BYE....usually she loves her rides in the car! These pets are smarter then we are!
  • Deb - 2014-08-06

We have a long hair chihuahua she is so sweet, but the only problem we're
having is she has real long hair on her butt so everytime she has a bowel
movement it sticks and hangs in her hair. I've tried cutting it but it still sticks. Any ideas please help.

    You have seen a poodle with the typical poodle cut? I have seen that on the long haired chihauhua. Literally from the hip bones and down to the knees the pup is shaved - completely shaved. From the back knees on down, there is hair. The tail except for the tip is also shaved. I never thought about there being a actually reason for this - just thought the people had a preferance. If I was having the problem you describe - that is what I would do - different but cute look.
  • Deb - 2014-08-06
    Just shave her butt. Use a comb and place it between her and the shaver. I shave both of mine all the time. If you do just the rear no one notices it at all. There is no need to ruin their hair and shave the entire dog! It works, using the comb and cutting it short. Hope this helps. :)

Hello, I have had two doves for almost half a year, Marilyn and burton. they have had several pairs of eggs , all unsuccessful. well one finally hatched. I just separated her from her parents at roughly 3 weeks cause Marilyn laid another egg. I have been desperately searching on craigslist for another dove, because I don't want to go to the store and separate a pair. But she she seems so lonely and coos so sad. My question is what do you do in the situation where only one egg hatches, how do you go about introducing another dove, and how can you help them get used to you? I just want my baby Marvella (miracle) to be happy and provide her with the best care I possibly can. My doves are my world. Thanks in advance , Hope.

    You should be able to get more diamond doves at a pet store, and usually you don't need to worry about breaking up a pair, because they will most likely have a mixed group for you to choose from. Introducing another dove or two shouldn't be a problem, though it might be best to make sure your baby has a chance to become full sized and totally sustaining himself before introducing him to another.
