    Yeah, 15 gallons isn't going to work for very long. Your fish will reach up to at least 24' in length when it is full grown so you'll need to upgrade even past the 50 gallon size.  Read the Aquarium Set-up information above for more info on this.

    YES IT IS TOO SMALL!! get a 300 gallon tank right of way

We bought a ILLeger's macaw in December 2013, he was 6 weeks. He is adorable, we hand feed him, he walks around in the house, sits in his cage and playstand, sits on our shoulder, is very loveable, he eats everything, fruit, his pallets and seeds. But it is now 9 days that he started to moan, while he is eating, walks around, and even when he is sitting on our shoulders, he is moaning non stop, till he goes to sleep. He stopped playing with his toys, only wants to eat seeds (nothing else), and where he sits, he sits and moans, only goes down to eat and drink water. I'm irritated with his moaning, it's from when he wakes up till he goes to sleep! Can anyone help me please! What did I do wrong for Marley to moan non stop!

    Please take him to his Avian certified vet immediately. It's possible he is making happy noises. But you can't take a chance. Where are you located? I have a list of very good vets all over the country. Please send me a message when you find out what is wrong. Please?

Help please!! I got two adult flying squirrels a couple months ago. A male and a female and I have had a really hard time bonding with them because the male is agressive! I'm wondering if I could let them out the cage for a little while to let them bond with me more, but I'm afraid I won't be able to catch them again.so my question is if I let them out will they eventually return to their cage!

    Me and my sister have raised 10 eastern grey squirrels and 5 flying squirrels.and my favorite ones where the flying squirrels. They are so cute and tiny!! The one we have now is 3 and we let her out every night. She runs around the room and climbs to the top of the door and glides to the bed. She usually is out about 30 mins. And runs back in her cage and sits there waiting to be fed. If I Were you I would go into a smaller room for the first few times. And I would let only one out at first. After they are used to their surroundings they can be together. Before,when we had 2 they were a lot more active. If you want to bond with the male I suggest you take them apart for how ever long you want. The male wouldn't be near as aggressive if there wasn't a female around. Mine of corse where raised as a baby.So... But what ever you do PLEASE enjoy your flying squirrels!! 😉

    In the wild it is said to be about 6 years and I would think it would be at least that in captivity. For the teeth - you can get a hard chew toy--- lava rock bird toy, dog bone, soup bone (boil it) usually knuckle bones at grocery store. Something hard for it to chew on and it will wear her teeth down. Vet can also probably sand them down but i don't think she will like it.
  • Rick - 2012-09-01
    My wife not only make sure our squirrel has shelled nuts to gnaw on like hazel nuts, brazil nuts, almonds and pecans, we also purchased flavored wood chews in the hamster section at the pet store. She seems to enjoy them and her teeth are doing well.
  • Kisha - 2012-12-04
    I have heard a calcium block is used for ones kept in captivity, as pets to wear down the teeth.
  • bryan - 2014-06-25
    I've done so much reading on these flying squirrels yet I can't find out how they are with children, new borns etc. Can you help me out?
  • Linda Jo Decker - 2014-09-25
    Me and my sister have raised 5 flying squirrels. We have one now. She is 5 which is longer than usual. We keep small sticks in there for her she enjoys chewing them. It gives her Something to do. They also need calcium so it is good to keep pieces of deer antler or sterilized bones. I hope I was helpful!! 😉

Hello, I found a baby flying squirrel at my fiance's parent's house yesterday. My fiance's mother informed me that the dog and cats had messed with it and he even got bitten on the leg. My fiance's dad also accidentally sucked him into the vacuum cleaner. The poor little guy was really scared and so he bit me which is understandable. I got a little fish aquarium to keep him in for the time being and I purchased food for a hamster which has nuts, corn, and dried fruits in it. I am not really sure what he needs to drink. He is about six weeks old. I have a very big cage that my old monkey lived in for him to live in. I don't want him to die. He has been through a lot already so I want to make sure that I am doing things correctly. Any tips??

    I would be concerned about broken bones or internal injuries, but it sounds like he may be okay as you didn't say if he's having any trouble getting around or acting funny. The comments from re-habbers and other folks above have some great info on what they drink and other baby foods! Good luck

    My sister and I raised 10 squirrels. We went to the vet and they gave us a bunch of of free syringes with little nipple attachments. We tried the small bottles from WalMart and (trust me on this one) did not work. We used WalMart kitten formula. Heat it luke warm. For the first times you have to carefully hold their tiny heads. Make SURE your thumb is barely pushing because they can kinda suck it out on there own. The nipple will look very long and hard but trust me it's fine this. Has worked on my 10 babies and on all of my cousin's squirrels. Once or twice and I promise they got the hang of it. 😉

I think I may have a problem. I've just introduced a 9' plecco (Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps) to my 50 gallon, well established aquarium that is also home to three 4' goldfish. It's been day four, and he sleeps all day in his favorite cave, and for the first two nights, I could watch him darting around as soon as the lights went off. These last few nights, he's been a little sluggish getting out of his cave, so I've been placing his algae wafers in the top hole of his cave to make sure he was getting enough to eat. The resulting mess confirmed he was indeed eating, but tonight, as I turned out the light, he was again shy to get out, and when he finally did, I noticed he seemed thinner and less active than before. I've tested the water chemistry, the temperature is a steady 72°, and the tank is free from filth. I was told by the shop where I bought him from that he was an owner trade in, as he got too big for their 20 gallon tank. He was a very healthy specimen! Could anyone shed some light on this behavior and weight loss issue for me? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    Hard to say what's going on, he may still be adjusting. It wouldn't hurt to do a water change, especially since you're sure he's been eating, because all that food may be putting quite a load on the tank. I also suggest you test your ammonia, it can jump when the nutrient load is increased because the biofilter takes time to adjust to a higher load.
