Is it normal for a pleco to stay on its back for 5 - 6 hrs? I thought it was dying, then all of a sudden it went nuts (swimming, jumping, diving).. now it follows me when I pass the tank..

    That doesn't sound exactly typical, but it sounds like he is doing fine now. Just keep an eye on him to make sure you don't see any other signs of illness. Also do the recommended water changes (about a fifth of the tank once a month) and check the water quality and temperature.

I got a Comet Goldfish 3 days ago. I know it is a male. I named him Gil. He is is the only fish I have at the moment. I have a question. I have had been told that your fish can like being a pet like a cat or dog. Is that good for a fish? If yes could I try with him. He is the only fish I have at the moment. I also want to get a place for him to hide, I have silk plants, but I would like something he can go in to hide from my cat. My cat and him are cool but my cat is a bit of a hunter. So I think he likes more hiding spots. What kind of things are good for him?

    If you go to pet smart look for the SpongeBob decorations and you'll see the pineapple and tiki house those might help.

Last night we found a small mourning dove, she seems to have no balance, her wings seem fine and she will wrap her feet around our finger. Not sure of age, but she does not seem to have tail feathers. Right now she is eating wild bird seed and will drink water, will she eat bananas? Or dried cranberries? That is all i have right now, will go to pet store and see about some grit and maybe a better feed for her. I also have some lettuce, would that be ok for her?   any help would be greatly appreciated!   thank you tina cooke, conway. Sc

    I don't think bananas are in their usual diet, but it probably won't hurt to try. Dried cranberries probably won't hurt either. Lettuce should be fine. Definitely get a good quality seed mix and grit. Good luck!

I have had a collared dove since August 2012 when we picked her up from the roadside, she was 2 days old. She is very tame and loves my husband. I'm told our DNA is imprinted on her as we fed her and brought her up. We have just moved house. At our old house she flew in and out and made her nest in the side conservatory. We had her in a pen for a few weeks first. She was in a pen here for a few days and my husband felt sorry for her and let her out. She sat on his shoulder and potted around the garden and came in through the back door. Then she flew out and we haven't seen her since. I'm devastated. She has been gone four days now. Anyone have any suggestions how we find her? Will she try and go home (it's 1 hour away in the car) She wasn't interested in other birds as she thought she was one of us. Am so worried about her.

    I would put a listing in the paper and maybe contact the local shelter. She most likely will not know how to get back to your old home, but also won't be very good at surviving in the wild. It is likely someone will find her and she will stay close to human civilization. I hope you find her, good luck!

I have a huge problem... here is some background: I have been breeding Kribensis for a long time but today I have noticed that one of my batches male that is 8 months has a black and red face on 1-side! does anyone no what it is or should I get rid of it before it infects the other fish?

    Off the top of my head I don't know what the heck it is. But... I would isolate the fish (quarantine/hospital tank) until I resolve what is going on with this fish. That way you will be avoiding a condition that could affect other tank inhabitants. Better to be safe than sorry:)

I have 2 golden rossela birds, but I don't know which one is male or female, please let me know how to know them male or female. Thank you very much

    There is no way to accurately determine 100% as to which is the male or female in the Rosella except through DNA sexing.  The DNA sexing kits can be purchased via ads in the back of the bird talk magazine.  Some say the male is a brighter red, the female is slightly smaller etc and possibly if you are a breeder and have many of these parrots, this may work some of the time.  DNA sexing is the only sure way = unless one of them happens to lay an egg.  This site makes suggestions as to how (possibly) you can distinguish the differernce -    All I know is that if it lays an egg - it is a gal or you can DNA sex.  If you have two males, one will most likely assume the role of a female so via behavior or coloring - it is not accurate    
  • Gideon Swart - 2012-06-17
    If the Golden Rossela is 6 months old or older , then is possible to see what the sex of the bird is. If one look at the back of the head , the female has a gap in the red portion. The male has a solid red area behind his head. In the picture of the rossela on this site one can clearly see the gap in the red area behind the head of the female

    Look for spots under the wing, if there are spots it is female, if not it is male.

I found a bird at work, don't know what kind. Had an orange spot on the side of its head. Looked like a young bird.
