neil - 2011-03-19
Hello there I am trying to breed the dojo weather loach for the past 2 years, I study fish husbandry and fish biology and am a lover for fish through and through! I have six loaches in a 4ft tank with a ehiem external filter the tank consists of a large mix of fish naming a few, carp, tench, red tailed shark, one large coldwater plec, one medium tropical orange spotted plec, large fresh water mussels,
one of the loaches is now around 7 inches and has a large belly (egg sack looking). I have the temp quite high and have been increasing it over the last 2 years now it looks as she might lay eggs. My question is what do I do leave her and reduce the other fish stock or try and catch the loaches and move them into a smaller hatchery tank? Please get back many thanks neil xx

    Do you have warm enough water?
  • chris - 2011-04-05
    All of your fish may be bothering the loaches, so it will be harder for them to breed, and you may have to have warmer water.
  • chris - 2011-04-11
    It might be a disease called ick.

    Uum even if you do get breeding fish with other fish like that in the tank they will eat the eggs, plecos and carp and the sharks will make quick work of any fry too. Highly recommend moving them to their own, shallow ish but big tank (much like a ray or skate tank) with a area of lots of water movement (as dojo loaches will often lay eggs in direct current to keep them oxygenated) and an area with a lot of live plant and little current for hiding as a breeding pair may be shy and these are smart fish and will see you around if you come into the room.

    They need cooler temperature to breed... Like 20 or lower... And apparently they don't breed in captivity :/

    I have 2 loaches 1 of them is a weather loach. One of them jumped out of the tank and stayed on the floor all night. Next morning I found him on the floor. He always dug in the gravel. I think loaches are the best pet ever!
  • anna phillips - 2012-02-27
    Weather loaches are a cold water fish, breeding is triggered in coldwater tempetures ,around 64 farineheight. I would do breeding in long tank. They like to chase.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-04-14
    I would move the fry so you don't end up stressing your community out too much. If a small community tank and you have another established tank you can move them.
  • Renz - 2012-04-26
    Separate carefully the other fish from loach, for them to breed and to release eggs. Put also any aquatic plants inside the tank for the eggs to attached and hatch. Supply them with continues water flow inside the tank.
  • christine baxter - 2014-10-20
    Simple the intended breeding pair should be in a tank of their own without fish or other loach. Plenty of plants, hiding area's for adults water temp 21c chunky substrate for eggs rest in until they hatch and to ford protection for fry. Also algea growing on the substrate as this is food for the fry!

Last Saturday 10/18/14 I went to my moms.I came home later that night and found my male sugar glider (Fred) dead in the bottom of his cage. I investigated because the night before he was like he always was so happy and full of spunk. As I was investigating I found his face and stomach was wet but the cage and everything in it was dry. Then I noticed his favorite to was the only item in his cage wet it did not smell like he soiled it. It was like someone poured water from the top of his cage while he was looking up while playing on his toy.but no one was home with him but I have noticed someone has been coming while me and my husband are gone. Can someone please give me some of their input. Thanks for yalls time.

Ringtail Possums are not pets. They are wild animals and should be left to flourish in the wild. If you find a sick or injured possum please get it to a registered wildlife carer or vet asap as these animals need special care with an aim to release all animals. Please do the right thing by these animals and don't keep them confined in a cage, they should be free

     Ringtail possums are protected species in Australia, and it's illegal to interfere with them in any way whatsoever ie. no trapping, and no keeping, despite the fact they can be pests in your garden. They easily destroy any roses you keep, and have a strategy of destroying (and ultimately killing) one tree at a time. Like all marsupials, they have very small brains, and while they're good at what they do (climb), they are not intelligent animals like dogs and they can in no way be trained as pets. As for house-training, forget it - they just don't understand and will wee and drop constantly wherever they are (including on you). When picked up, they generally ignore you apart from scratching you with very sharp claws when handled. In summary, they do not make good pets whatsoever. They're like opossums, but a bit more primitive and certainly less intelligent than a rat or mouse. You can get a wildlife permit if you have a very good reason to keep one, but this is expensive and only given if the animal has no alternative - having one as a pet is almost unheard of. In summary, they are protected native animals, and should be left to their natural environments, which if you're lucky, may include your garden. They are social animals and MUST be kept as a family group together, which effectively means you can't have 'one' as a pet. Lastly, anyone from Belize who tells you they've got them is a scammer - this kind of third world possum scam is very common.

These exotic pets are best pets for display not for "hands-on". my malaysian forest scorpions are 2 1/2 inches (not including the tail) 11 months old and it molts 3 times already.. they are better than the emperor because they move very often and you can see it's perfect scorpion appearance.. remember: handle it with care.

How do you stop doves from excessive 'mourning' sounds? It's driving me crazy.

    Doves coo when they are happy, excited, and they coo to connect with each other. Males tend to have a louder or harsher coo. Doves do bond easily with their keepers and can coo because they want some attention. Giving them some regular play time with you can help them calm down. They also tend to get noisy when it gets light in the morning and covering their cage with a dark sheet or blanket can help.

OMG - I am so glad you guys mentioned again and again how picky they are. I went to Petsmart and bought a sampling of all the highest-end dogfoods they offered and finally found one my papihuahua (better than 'chion,' don't you think?) loved, but she quit eating it after a month. She loves people food, though, especially protein bars and popcorn chicken. The only way to insure she eats is to feed her with her bigger sibling, a Westie. Her natural dominance insures she will eat if he is around to keep him from getting it.

    Haha! That's hilarious. My Papihuahua is so not picky at all. She would eat rocks if I let her. She's always waiting in the kitchen to be fed. I'm sure she would just eat the whole bag if I let her! She is on a raw, grain-free diet though. I find she gains weight very easily on dry food and she not only loves the raw food, but it's much easier to maintain her ideal weight.

I managed to train the barking almost completely out of my Papihuahua, Gertie. She barks only when another dog approaches her territory. Papillions can be quite territorial and she gotten a lot better. That is the only time that she isn't the best dog in the whole world. She is not afraid of strangers; she loves being pet by them. She LOVES kids. SO MUCH. She is so gentle with them but if they want to play, my god she will chase them! She's not a big player. I mean, she'll occasionally run around like a crazy person, but she is rather afraid to play in front of big dogs because I guess they want to play back. But if it's just her and another small dog, she'll usually tear it up. She loves walks and exercise. She's a great cuddler and loves our night-time cuddle sessions. She was very difficult to completely house train, eliminating in the house up to a year of age. She's four now and there's no problems. She took to crate training very well and loves her house on the main floor. Teaching her new tricks is easy it just takes ten minutes and some patience. But she understands many different commands, and I'm pretty sure that she understands the tone with which I say the same words. She is the best dog in the whole world.
