Re Clydesdale Horses. Small point. Your article mentioned "feathers", the long hair on the lower part of the legs. The correct term is "feather", no "S". Feathers are on birds. Sorry to be so pedantic but can someone delete the "s".

      If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.

      how will i know if a love birds fischers is 5 or 6 years old?
    • Clarice Brough - 2014-06-27
      The age of birds is almost impossible to determine, other than as juveniles. Your best bet is to ask the person you got them from what their hatch date was.

    Thanks for your information on Tiger Barbs. I have 7 of these (one died recently) and they are doing fine in my 20 g tank with One Giant Danio (Very Aggressive), Red Rainbow, Pearl Gourami and Ram Cichlid. Tiger barbs are fun to watch with their fast movements and other fish have no problems from fin nipping. Perhaps 7-8 in group did the magic.

    This site is really good and I would love to have profiles of Red Tail Black Shark and Rainbow Sharks.

      I have 2 red tail sharks with my 5 tiger barbs as well as a pearl gourami 2 silver dollars and an albino barb. The red tails have been getting along fine with everyone. They have claimed their territory and don't put up with any crap from anyone else and they are fun to watch chase around with the tiger barbs. I have heard though that its a risk buying 2 redtails as one may bully the other to death but I haven't had that problem. I run a 20 gallon tank and could go bigger but everyone seems to be doing fine.

      Both of you guys tanks Are WAAAAAAAAAY Too Small. Giant Danios are schooling fish as well as Silver Dollars. To the person that replied, You would need about a 110 Gallon Tank for those fish.

      anyone got suggestions on what keep it with? im thinking maybe with my tandus tandus catfish, hopefully they will be good friends ( unlike what happened to my bristle nose catfish )
    • Clarice Brough - 2013-05-14
      I think you'll have better luck with this combo, as they occupy different areas of the tank and don't look alike. Have fun!
    • kye turnbull - 2013-05-15
      Tandanus catfish don't look anywhere near what bristle nose look like, they look like silver tipped sharks but brown and have a tail.

      I just bought 2 silver tipped shark.... My fish supplier would not sell only one... they HAVE to have another silver tip with them or they will not be happy... Sounds like some of the problems I read here may be from loneliness....

      8-10 tangs alone need a much bigger tank.  They need plenty of places to bed down at night to sleep.  I would get a much bigger tnak or cut down to 2 tangs.
    • Anonymous - 2013-02-15
      good luck with that
    • Daniel Bleier - 2014-08-01
      8-10 tangs would be far too many in a tank that size. My tank is 7'x2'x2' and I house 1 yellow, 1 purple, and 1scopas tang and trust me that is the limit. They have been ok for 3 years now but still show aggression at least twice a week.

    Hi, I recently adopted a Mombasa golden starburst baboon spider, and have no idea what to do? I am aracnafobic don't like spider at all since one nearly killed me, but I'm trying to get over it, any advice???? I've got an enclosure for her but no idea what to do, or how to handle het, all I knw is she is old aged, about 10cm big and very agressive, also very beutifull, may I ask for any pointers?

      Simple answer to handling. don't. Obts are extremely aggressive and will bite if they have to. The bite is very painful. They're not recommended for beginners for this reason. They're also very fast. She is best left alone with the enclosure only opened to feed or clean which requires a lot of care and undivided attention from you. Honestly, if you're afraid of spiders an obt is not the pet of choice.

    I have two large tanks and over the years I have bought nine botias that were sold as Botia Kubotai (polka dot botias). It turns out five are polka dots, three are histrionicas, and one is a botia I have never seen before. It is in-between the size of an polka dot and a yo-yo. Approximately, 4 ½ inches. It’s coloring is almost black with a pattern in a dark grey with one small yellow area. It snout is shorter like the polka dot, not as long as the yo-yos. Anybody have any ideas? I’ve searched everywhere and I can’t find one that looks like it.

    i have been raising jack's for 10 years now. they seem to look their best with a black substrate as they adapt their color to the surroundings. i have a pair in a 55 gallon tank that spawns every 2-3 months for the past 4 years. i got jack dampdeys everywhere. my local shop took them in happily at first but 500-800 every 3 months got them sick really fast. the male is an out of the ordinary 10 inch with a 6 inch female. i feed them flakes, pellets, and shrimp. hes got quite a temper but as long as i got a few places that the mate will not fit into that will house the female all is good. i have green terrors, tiger oscars and pacus in my 7 tanks but the "JACK" and "JILL" are the most beautiful fish i own. be careful as they are aggresive and will eat anything that will fit in their month at least half way....

      Question please, I have a jack demsey and an orange one, I think it's a something bloodflower anyways they keep locking lips. Is this a mating or fighting thing? They haven't lost color.
    • Alayna - 2014-07-31
      I have a question, I have 2 jack Dempseys, one male and one female. They have spawned 3 times since I have owned them (5 years) they just had babies 2 weeks ago and I noticed the male is being very aggressive to the female, so much she has an open wound. I went to the pet store to get her medicine but what do I do? He has never done this to her.. I don't want anything to happen as I love them both. They're both very beautiful and I really need advise/help. Thanks
