I have had a red factor canary for the last 6 years and he is healthy and apparently happy as he sings daily and in the evening if the light is on. People that visit and hear him sing cannot believe his song and the loudness and duration. I am asked to go into another room if on the phone, or have difficulty watching TV and hearing while he is singing. I have owned many canaries in the past but the performance of this guy is without parallel. He would be considered a Master by a breeder if in a room full of young learning how to sing. Thanks for the information I received by reading your site and good luck in the future.

I have a Giant Gourami that we think is 20 years old. She has become a stronger shade of pink lately and seems to not want lettuce, spinach, greens as much as she used to. Loves grapes, bananas, peas and worms. I have heard she should not have too much protein? I have not found much information on gourami's aging. Not sure if I am doing something wrong. I have had her for over 2 years and everything else seems good. Thanks for any help.

    It doesn't sound like you're having any problems with her. See the feeding and diet section above. These fish are omnivores and so proteins as well as veggies are appropriate, a balanced diet. They are known to live up to 25 years in captivity with good care, so your's is doing great:)

Hi after some advice please - we have a 75 litre tank with three goldfish. We keep the water clean by replacing 30 percent a week or two weeks max. We have fresh plants and planted wood which we replace when needed. We have a powerful filter and bought three of these Chinese hill stream fish on advice from an aquarium shop but a few weeks later we could only find one - the biggest one left. We thought maybe they were just hiding but a month or so later still no sign, so on Saturday we got two more and now I'm pretty certain they've gone too! We bought them the same size this time in case the original one was a bully but can't find them at all only one left 2 days later! Could he be eating them? There's no evidence of dead fish and the other fish are all lovely and seem happy?

    That is very strange that they just disappear with no trace! These loaches are in general very peaceful fish and so it does not make sense that one would be eating all the rest of them. Is it possible they have gotten stuck in any filters or have gotten caught in the plants and you just haven't found them?

I just got 2 puffer fish. Put them in my 40 gallon tank with a cichlid. 5 hours later, the cichlid died. Is this due to the puffers poison?

    The puffers do not excrete poison into the water, there is only poison present in their bodies which can kill other fish if they try to eat them. How long have you had your cichlid and was he much larger than your new puffers? Puffers are known to be somewhat aggressive and will go after fish who are smaller than themselves, so it is possible he was attacked and killed.

I bought a Morgan at an auction for my daughter when she was 10 years old. She liked to hang around the race track. A lot ofpeople hit her up for a race. She out run every horse. A lot of people tried to buy him. She liked to barrel race . He couldnt change leads at the barrels. I bought her a quarter horse. He could change leads but was not near as fast as the Morgan. She then gave the morgan back to me. I never been on a better horse. I kept him until he died of old age. If I ever get another horse it would be a Morgan

Cockatiel lover - 2014-01-18
hi, I bought a female cockatiel, she was kept with male birds, and she is 2 months old. Is there a chance that she will lay eggs, and if she does can she raise them herself ??

    Cockatiels should be 18 months to two years old to breeding. Any female parrots can lay eggs even if they are kept alone, however the eggs will not be fertile.

I currently have 2 Green and 1 Red Scat in my 5 feet tank. They're in freshwater tank with aquarium salt not sea salt. Been keeping them with parrot fish whom the salt is intended for. The Scats are around 3-4 years old. Size is about 4-5 inches. The Green ones seems to grow nicer as adults then the red ones. I also realise the red ones grow way faster than the green ones. They are easy to feed and these 3 are always schooling together. So far I'm not sure when to start moving them to brackish cause they're still fine and growing in the tank. So far so good.

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!!
