    Sorry, im new to this, I thought I was filling out a profile or something. Anyway what I wanted to say was that I've had a falco hawkfish for nearly a year now. He's fine with all the fish that were in the tank before him, but rather agressive with the fish that came in after his arrival. He bullied the dottybacks to death, but gave up on the larger moorish idol after a few days, who ive had for a month now and is thriving. I recommended getting them after adding your smaller and more delicate fish. They eat shrimp but are usually good with shelled animals (hermit crabs, snails, etc.). They are great fish and I highly recommend them to anyone who has a tank with larger fish. (P.s., theyre not mean, it's just their nature. Just because you ate a hamburger for lunch yesterday doesn't make you mean because you ate 'the poor cow.' Just sayin)

Remember: these fish are NOT moorish idols!!! I've never had these fish but I purchased a moorish idol (very similar looking fish) a month ago. They are EXTREMELY difficult! I've managed to keep him alive after 2 weeks of not eating, ick, and stress problems from my hawkfish. He is finally looking better but not worth the risk, not to mention these are half the price of moorish idols and MUCH easier to keep alive.

Heniochus black/white/yellow bannerfish/ butterflys elongated dorsal fin is losing the filament. Gray patches on banner. Fish not as active today and did not eat. Checked ammonia, nitrate, phosforus. All normal. I do 5 gallon water changes on 75 gal every other day. The fin still has half of the filament on and the other half is just a thin bare thread.

    Hi, did your heniochus recovered from its dorsal fin infection? if so what tretreatment did you use? hope you reply and the fish is well.

    Hi im having a similar problem and was wondering if he recovered? If so what treatment did you use? I hope you reply soon thanks.

    This sound like a bacterial infection, like Tail and Fin Rot, which besides having disintegrating fins, can also show up with gray patches on the skin.
  • Nathan - 2014-09-21
    Probably a bacterial infection. Make sure all your filtration is running smoothly and do daily 20% water changes until it clears up. Best of luck to your fish!

Hello, Everything I read about ringneck doves tell me that they dont live in the wild, but they live in the wild here in Tuscumbia Alabama. I have homing pigeons and sometimes ringneck doves visit and eat the scrap seeds that my pigeons spill. Also mourning doves visit too. The ringnecks are much larger than the mourning doves. I watch them at a very close distance with binoculars and can see the black markings on their necks. Maybe someone let some escape sometime in the past here in Tuscumbia but now I have seen them all over town. Tuscumbia is the birthplace of Helen Keller and I have seen the ringneck doves there at this historical site also. Just thought I would pass along this little bit of info to those who like ringneck doves. Maybe you can come visit this historical deep south town and possibily see some ringneck doves too! Also this area is rich with American Indian History if you are interested. Thanks, Danny DeLano

    Hi, Danny. What you see in your yard is a specious called the Eurasian Collared-Dove. It is not the same species as the domesticated Ringneck Dove, though they are closely related.

I adopted this beautiful long haired chihuahua from the SPCA June 16,2014. She has been nothing but a blessing in our family after our first child passed away last Christmas I was in need of something to lift my spirits. I was only tagging along with a friend of mine to adopt her new cat I walked the the dog kennels and saw this beautiful little golden fluff ball sitting in her blankets with one eye out observing everything. I fell in love. I called the bank and told them it was an emergency I needed them to cover the funds and -$300 dollars later and some strong convincing of my husband she was mine. She has played such a big role in our healing process and has become my baby. She has the best temperament and is so calm I can take her anywhere and she'll just fall asleep in my lap. Everyone is amazed at just how well tempered and patient she is. Not the typical yapping and ankle bitting chihuahua you usually see. And despite my husband being strongly against keeping her he has fallen in love with her as well. She is now my certified emotional support dog and is rarely not with me. My izabelle is the best thing that ever happened to me and has given me the hope and strength I needed on the days I didn't think I had it in me.

    Well, these fish will generally reach between 6 - 8 inches (15 - 20 cm) in the aquarium. It sounds like you may have some fish interested in breeding, which can account for the lip-locking behavior.
  • Eric Boats Hardy - 2014-09-19
    so you saying the lip lock is male vs female or male vs male
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-09-21
    It's generally males that fight to establish territory, but I have seen female gouramis get aggressive at times too. Don't know who's tusselling in your tank.

I got me a albino creamsicle almost a year ago. every time I feed him I give him 2 days alone. After 2 day's I get him out and take him outside. (you can see when they have to poop) I did this everytime. Everyday I give him fresh water and I hold his head near it and he drinks some. well for 2 days he refused water so on the second day I decided to take him out... and wala he peed. :) I brought him back inside and he drank some water. took alot of care, love, & patience to make my snake trained to use the bathroom outside. so for all you just now getting one I suggest doing the above. it's not easy, but it saves the trouble of cleaning or smelling a nasty cage and it saves money due to not having to clean the cage alot. :)
