Is is normal for my Senegal to put his head in his water dish and make himself wet all over by flicking the water?

    Yeah, he's fine doing that, he just wants to take a bath. You could also try providing him with a bird bath - flat dish with lukewarm water on the bottom of the cage - and see if he likes that, or using a misting bottle with a gentle spray may be appreciated.

Budgies are a wonderful pet! I have four right now and they are definitely my best friends. I agree with the authors statement that giving them plenty of flight time will make them happier birds, I would just like to add that budgies are extremely curious and they should be watched constantly when they are loose. It's not uncommon for them to get into everything... turning your back for even a second can mean disaster!!

If you have been considering getting a budgie, you won't regret it! They are amazing friends and really bring life into a home :) Not to mention, they make the CUTEST little sounds :) All I ask is that you please do your research before buying your bird. It's best to understand what kind of food/supplies you need to feed and bring it home before even considering your pet. I have had parakeets for years and still find myself refreshing my knowledge on occasion, it is the best way to have your friend for a very long time :)

    Your found parakeet sounds like a great pet and it is behaving normally for a parrot just introduced to a new environment. Birds take a while to adjust to a new home, it may get more vocal as it gets acclimated. You're a great person for taking care of these animals and I wish you the best in finding them permanent homes.

    My kids just found a parakeet thrown away in a dumpster, cage in all, I have no clue what ti do with it, I bought it parakeet food, but its been quiet, eating, and cleaning itself. Aren't they usually noisy???I ccould use some advice here please. Im not an animal person at all, and I already housing a 9yr old chihuahua they found 2 weeks ago. Im not an animal or pet person, but can't stand to see an animal being abused or mistreated. Looking for forever homes for both pets, but want to take the best possible care of them and maybe show them the love an attention theyve probably never had. So any advice would be helpful. Thank you for your time

I have a budgie parakeet, (blue n white), he's about 4 yrs old. His beek is long that it curls way under n has like a spoon shape on the end? Is this normal or what can I do? He still can eat, but can not peck at things with a pinch anymore.

    One of the most common causes of an overgrown beak is vitamin A deficiency, usually caused by an all seed diet (unless your bird has suffered from a beak trauma, or any malady that would cause a malformed beak). This can be alleviated with diet and supplements, but it will take time. Also make sure you provide plenty of chew toys so the bird can naturally keep its beak trim.

    For now, you need to trim his beak to prevent other problems. An avian vet can to this, or you can do it yourself if you feel confident. Tahere are bird trimmers available a pet stores. You may want to just trim a little ways back at one time and then trim again later, because if the beak is trimmed too short it will cause the bird pain and it will bleed.

Please, I hope nobody reading this decides to stock their tanks like some of the other commenters. 2 of these catfish with any other large fish in a 29gal is too many. 1 bala shark can't live in a 29 gal, let alone the 2 + plecos + synos that one person describes. Once these guys reach adulthood, they really ought to have a 55 gal or bigger to explore. Even if you only have 1.

    My. feather fin is 2yrs old and he is 3-4 inches, he has 5 tank mates that are upside down catfish, in a 30 gallon. Is this adequate or not?
  • Psshh - 2014-08-18
    I have heard much about syno cats needing lots and lots of space. Based on my research and word of mouth, I would agree with Spiff. I personally only keep 1 syno in my 55. His tankmates include malawi mbuna cichlids and he does great! He is 6mns old and currently 4-5 inches in size.
  • Mike - 2014-08-20
    Pertaining to 'my' featherfin length being only 3 in a half inches, is 30galls adequate?
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-08-21
    I'm guessing Mike, that it depends upon how fast your fish grows. As it gets bigger, you'll want to upgrade.
  • Anonymous - 2014-08-21
    He's a little over two years old, 3 in a half inches, with five upside down catfish in a 30 gal. Is this adequate?

my two little mice have become addicted to sweetmeats (originally offered once a day) and begs and screams all the time for more.they have become aggressive and even bit me and my mom. to sooth them we have given them lots of sweets and now they have become very fat and bulky.they do not exercise in their wheel, all they do is sleep and sleep. so when we decided not to give them sweets anymore, they have become increasingly violent and are screaming and biting at everyone who puts hand in their cage. how can i improve the situation?

    If you slowly let off of the sweets that should make them less aggressive and while your doing that mix less and less sweets with good nutritional food! I hope this was helpful! :)

Do I have had a golden dojo loach for about a year,.  He is an awesome fish, very active.  I decided he needed a buddy so I bough anotherone yesterday.  The one I have had for a while has black eyes and the new one has red eyes.  Does that mean he is a true Albino golden dojo loach?  They have LOTs of other loach friends, 3 black kuli loach, 3 clown loaches, multiple guppies, tetras, neons, upside cats and bumble bee cats.  Large Tank

I bought two diamond doves six weeks ago. One has a large dark eye ring and the other one a smaller light ring. I thought they were male and female. They both do the bow coo and coo a lot. Could they both be males?

  • Jasmine Brough Hinesley - 2013-07-25
    How old are they? You can't tell for sure which are males/females until they are at least 6 months old. It's possible you could have two males, but if one definitely has a larger ring than the other, I would bet that one is a male and the other one female.
  • Linda - 2013-07-31
    I do not know their age but they look full grown. They started fighting leaving one with no breast feathers. I read that Females do not bow coo.( both bow coo.) I have separated them to see if the breast feathers will grow back, as I am not sure if fighting was the cause of it. Both birds seem to be healthy. Thank you for your comment. I am new at having Diamond Doves.
  • mohammadthri - 2014-08-23
    for me also same this happen. both singing with high sound but only one dancing
