What about the joint problems in old ages? Could they suffer from painful joint disease like arthritis?

My chow chow is now one year and three months old...oh my...you have
your work cut out for you..unless you can devote 24/7 to your chow then
not a good pet for you..they need alot of attention..and training will
produce great results but you must start when they are puppies in a puppy
class then obedience classes..and keep them there...they are very stuborn
and want to do everything their way..so patience..if you have none then
your chow will take the alpha roll and dominate you..and this you do not
want..good luck...

We adopted a Smooth collie mix---he is just lovely! Just a little bit stockier than a purebred. We've never had a collie before so I'm wondering---do Smooth Collies like to hunt rabbits? He is mesmerized by rabbits, not birds though. And he hardly ever barks except to let us know he wants to go for a walk---and that's a short commanding bark. He also tries to sing with me when I sing and have a voice lesson. He is VERY vocally expressive. When strangers come to the door, he doesn't bark but stands with me. I'd appreciate any knowledge you'd like to share with me about Smooth Collies you've known and loved. Thanks.

Hello I have a red footed tortoise, I just wanted to know if I bought an exo terra water fall and pump, would it benefit him and the humidity of the vivarium, seeing as it would be a great feature?

    Good day. Actually I am also asking if turtle snake is venomous because a turtle snake was given to my wife as a pet but she is worried if it is venomous as it is being called turtle snake. If so, it is dangerous for our kids and to our household. If there is any clarification given to me I would be very glad. Thanks!

    As said above, these animals are best left in the tank to observe and enjoy looking at them. NOT to be handled a lot. They are a nervous species and if they get too stressed their immune systems will lower and they could get sick. It is not always easy to recover an exotic animal when it gets sick so it is best that you take care of them well to prevent it in the first place. Please provide your turtles with all they need, places to hide, correct diet, basking light and frequent cleaning of water (more information above), in order to prolong the life of your turtle, and the enjoyment of your family. They can be a lot of work but very interesting to have.

We just had a female box turtle lay her eggs in our back yard. It is in a very private part of our back yard and we plan to let the eggs hatch and let the turtles go back to the area around our lake as this is where they came from and I think they will be better off there.

Hi I am looking after a tank with multiple fish in it. I have two silver dollars, three gouramis, a pleco, a red tail cigar fish, and a jack Dempsey. The jack dempsey currently is laying on its side not moving and is turning white in patches on his body. He is the only one in the tank who seems to be affected but I have no idea what is wrong with him or how to help, I am taking him to a store where he hopefully can be treated but what should I do so the other fish in the tank don't get sick?

Thankyou

    Rose Tarantulas are known to be unpredictable. Some will start out like yours, passive and then get aggressive, especially after a molt. Others will start out aggressive and then become passive. Basically I suggest leave her alone until these moods pass.
  • Peter - 2014-05-04
    I just read your post and the first thought I had was why do you only feed your tarantula once a month? You should be giving her at least 3 crickets a week let alone one a month. That may be making her apprehensive. Try feeding her regularly and you will find her temper will change.
  • clay - 2014-05-29
    Yea if I only ate once a month I'd be a little cranky too! This spider must eat 2 to three crickets a week.

"I just got a dwarf lionfish and I'm already in love with him. He's in a 30 gallon tank with a yellow tang, a picasso triggerfish, a clown triggerfish and a panther grouper. I love the way he watches and then boom! And the fish is gone. I would recommend this to anybody with a semi aggressive saltwater aquarium.
some fish lover!"

Your tank is way to over stocked for the fish you have. You need to do more research before just filling your tank up with whatever you please. They are living creatures try using better judgment with them. You should have at least a 75 gallon tank for those fish. They will most likely die soon if they are not dead already.

    If you are going to keep the lionfish you need to get rid of the triggerfish and grouper too big for a 30 gal. aquarium, not fair to the fish to over stock the aquarium.
  • Steve - 2010-04-14
    I agree with that, as I am about to pick up a fuzzy dwarf lionfish and introduce him to a yellow tang, blonde naso, coral beauty, blue tang and gold stripe maroon clownfish. No fish is over 6" and they are in a six foot long 150 gallon tank established mini reef. Those fish like mine will exceed that tank and probably mine, in a short span of time. Please research what you are doing before you do it. The nitrates alone will make the fish less tolerable to the water changes you will have to do keeping all those med to large fish and a lionfish. I change 40 to 50 gallons every 2-3 weeks and that keeps my Nitrates at .08 ppm to .10 ppm.
  • aelun - 2011-06-11
    Listen you have actually got 2 rather agressive fish and as they grow they will most likely kill your other fish especially considering your tank size. If you want your your fish to survive then you'll need a much bigger tank probably 110 gallons and if you want anenomes say goodbye to your clown trigger fish.

    4 words, GET A BIGGER TANK!
  • Bill Vasalofsky - 2014-05-29
    A Panther Grouper can get up to 2 feet long and you are reccomending a 75 Gallon tank for that and two triggers, and a lion fish?  I saw a cool video of a Grouper eating a Volitan Lionfish on YouTube.  Those Clown Triggers aren't the nicest fish either.  You're really not supposed to put Trigger Fish in the same tank either.  Just some thoughts.  You probably won't have to worry about the 2 foot Grouper because they'll probably all die before it gets that big.

Hi I have pair of kissing fish I don't know how should I care for them? They kiss each other for very rare and sit calm for the whole time is all normal with them? I don't want them to die.
