I have a Wonderful Common Snapper. He is about 5 or 6 months old. We rescued him from our chicken hutch. Luckily we found hi before they did. He comes to me and stretches up the side like he wants out. After reading this I will start taking him out more often. He looks so sad in there and pushes himself to the edge as close to the family as he can get. I don't think he understands why he is in there and we are out here. He loves his belly rubs and under his neck to be rubbed...anything actually to be rubbed. He has never tried to bite me. I don't think he would take a chunk on purpose. Maybe I'm crazy but when he looks up with those big eyes he looks like he completely loves you. I'm crazy about Bubba T or Bubba Turtle... He definitely knows me and comes running we he hears my voice. Today his poop was green and he has been feeling kinda poorly not wanting to eat. Before he loved to eat reptamin sticks. Now nope. Ive been hand feeding him soft pellets mixed with pumpkin for the fiber and veggy content. I don't like it when he doesnt eat. I had him on antibiotic because he just wasn't acting like himself and although he showed no symptoms the vet gave me oral meds and i tickle his throat..opens wide and 3 drops go in. Then he looks at me like I just tricked him..lol..at least its cherry flavored. Probably would rather have liver flavored. I would love to know if meds cause green poop. He was constipated for a few days and was droopy cause of it. I would love to play with him I just don't want him to get cold. Love My Snapper Baby...putting in pond for him when warm comes!!

Hi, I got my Ghost 6 yrs ago, I had Goldens prior. He is by far the smartest dog I've ever had, sometimes human! I can't say enough about my guy, the things he does how he acts towards me, other people and animals is uncanny. Never chewed, caused mischief, or has separation anxiety. Everyone in my town knows my dog , he's like the town pet! So happy I got him , not that my Goldens were great dogs and love them . He is another level in smarts, what he does is unbelievable. Can talk on and on but will end with, people if you want a challenge for the first two yrs, then he starts mellowing out then Writers are your dog, not a day goes by that I'm not amazed or hr gets complement , like what a gorgeous dog !

    I've had a female GSP that I adored for her loyalty, but my female Weimer, is even better & more intelligent. She 'tells' you what she wants and feels. You never feel lonely with this breed. Very regimented.

Believe it or not I have a 55 gallon, currently most of my cichlids are pretty much still in juvenile, but I have 2 red zebras, 2 bumblebees, 2 aurautus, 3 electric blues. Currently the two biggest are one of the zebras and a bumblebee. And the zebra is the more aggressive he dominates the whole tank and thinks every cave is his. I hope he doesn't become a problem, he just chases the other fish, hasn't killed any but thought that would be interesting to mention. Oh and the bumblebee is bigger. Maybe he's a chicken.

I have a 75 gal tank & with an Albino Cichlid that started loosing weight but no loss of appetite. Now lays in a cave on the floor, it has no marks of injury or illness (ie: spots, external parasites, etc), the other fish seem healthy but have noticed 2 of the Electric Yellow Cichlids developed dark mottling around their faces. I have had all of these fish for a few years so I ruled out anything brought in by new fish. Does anyone have any information? Would metronidazol help?

    I'm sorry to hear about your Albino Cichlid. Figuring out what's going on is a bit of a crapshoot. It sounds like an internal disorder and could be something called skinny disease / chronic wasting syndrome. This is a fairly general term, and can be the result of a bacterial infection, parasites,  or mycobacteria (fish tuberculosis - TB). Metronidazole may help as it is effective against a vast array of parasitic infections.

    The blackening on the faces of your Electric Yellows is also difficult to be certain about. It tends to happen mainly in males as a sign that a male is dominant and ready to breed. But it has also been said that it can be a sign of stress or it can be genetic- a sign that the fish stock is not a really pure strain. Hopefully there is an internal parasite and you are successful in treating it. Wishing you all the best.

Hello We adopted a beautiful pineapple green-cheeked conure about 1 1/2 month ago. He (George) has turned out to be a real joy. George is a very curious and playful little parrot. I look forward to many years of play. AEC

    It may be that the tank has low oxygen. Check your filtration to make sure it is working properly and you have good water movement at the surface for oxygen exchange. Also check the temperature...  higher the water temperature the less oxygen the tank will have.

    Wow, that's too bad, I sure hope it lives. I would suggest Melafix added to the water to help ward off any infectious diseases.

I don't have a guinea pig but I love them. I have a baby boy hamster named Rory, before we got Rory my sister had a girl hamster named Creamy. I love animals and want to be a vet when I am older. I want to be a vet and hamster/ guinea pig breeder.
