    He may just need some time to adjust to his new environment. If he is eating and has access to water I wouldn't worry just yet. Keep his cage clean, mist it occasionally, and make sure he has a private place he can retreat to, such as a log or a rock cave.

    Ummmmm you're not supposed to mist rose hair tarantulas at all. They are a dry species and prefer not to be misted. If you do mist it will make her uncomfortable and she'll climb about her tank like a nut case.

    Hi I have a rosie and they hate being misted, I only to keep humidity at an acceptable level 50 sounds good for a rosie, but only do a light mist towarfs the water bowl make that the 'moist area' don't do the whole tank - they like it dry so you want your substrate to be dry and have at least a dry end of the cage if your getting used to regulating humidity

    Female Alexandrine Parakeets are lighter than males and their center tail feathers are shorter. Also the females won't have a collar or the black stripe crossing the cheek patches.

    It could be that the barb was a snack, unusual but it could happen.
  • Toni-Ann Mistretra - 2014-08-26
    Definitely eats other fish. We have had our striped Raphael catfish for around 17 years. He/she has gone through a variety of expensive feeder fish including barbs, neons, cichlids, and a ghost fish! Feeding it shrimp pellets and other high protein foods along with algae pellets or discs will help, but no guarantees. We renamed ours Cano ;)

My Texas cichlids have been such a rewarding pet. They are very social and curious. They get very excited and attentive at feeding times and are a lot of fun. Their physical attributes and color is stunning. I have never seen aggression from mine. They are housed in a 79 gal tank with plecs, 2 little catfish, a warmouth, and 3 orange spotted sunfish.

I just bought 2 of these guys. For some reason, they have been harrassing my Mickey Mouse Platy even though they are the same size. My poor platy has been chased all day by both of the fish :( I hope they calm down

    Get rid of one of your fish the platy will die soon. Cant believe some aquarists don't do research of platies. These are HIGHLY Aggressive so keep them with Discus and oscars

    I also have in my tank 2 Long Finned Black Tetras, One Mickey Mouse Platy. However I also have in the same tank a Head and Tail Light Tetra, Ghost Shrimp and a Plecostomus. My tank is only 14 gallons but I'm having absolutely no problems with them I have had them for a few years now. Honestly my tank is flurishing phenomenally. The key is having enough structures and plants for your fish to hide and find territories of their own. Try to rearange the tank when introducing new fish as to allow all the fish to find new territories at once so they don't over take each others and cause chaos. Hope this helps!

I have one stonefish which I have had for about 6 months. I have kept him in freshwater and have not seen him eat, but he must be eating because he is still alive. I have him with other fish... red tailed catfish, banjo, and spotted raphael. I feed him goldfish

we live in Arizona which is a great climate for Sulcatas. Currently we house two very large Sulcatas outside in a specially built enclosure. We used railroad ties stacked 4 high and they make a very sturdy and inexpensive wall. We paid about $8.00 each for the railroad ties and we found that they really didn't need to be secured in any way. The size and weight alone make them stack nicely. Our torts are about 50 lbs each so we really needed the enclosure to be strong. We use a double dog house with heat lamps for night time. Its easy to clean out and we replace the dirt inside when it gets soiled or wet. We made an eating platform out of 6-12" flat concrete pavers. It keeps the food off the dirt and we are able to hose it off when it gets dirty. I bought the biggest clay drainage dish I could find at a plant nursery. It's about 24" across. It makes a great water dish. It's shallow but heavy and they love to sit in it. I dug a shallow hole about 3 feet across that on occasion I fill with water and they love to wallow in it and flip mud on their backs. hope this is helpful information!

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!
  • Jake - 2014-05-20
    I pray you find her. She sounds like a sweet heart!

    Do you by any chance live around the Federal Way area in western Washington state? Its a long shot but found a ring-necked dove there and been trying to locate owner.
