We bought a cinnamon green cheek conure two years ago. Within the first day that we brought him home I told him, 'Goodnight! I love you!' and he replied with a muffled, 'wuv you!'. Now we have also taught him how to say 'I'm a Good Baby!' and how to dance. About a year ago we also bought another cinnamon green cheek, and they both get along great together. The new conure muffles when she says 'baby', but other than that she hasn't talked. They are both the best birds anyone could ask for. However, they do have their temper tantrums every once in a while!

We adopted a dog through the Cell Dogs program at a prison and she is listed as a lab/terrier mix. She resembles the red nose pit pictures I have been looking at. Anyone willing to view her pictures via email and let me know?

    Ok thanks..I will try and find a breeder around here and see if they are willing to check her out for me. Yes the Humane Society that runs the Cell Dog program was afraid no one would adopt her, so they listed her as lab/terrier mix. She is 16 months olds, very intelligent..she is crate trained and also hand command trained...We love her to death!!

Okay so I've had my rose H T for about a month. Her name is madam octa and she's about 6 months old now. Sometimes she doesn't mind me holding her but others she freaks out. One thing I have noticed is she responds very quickly to my voice. If I sit by the cage and softly call out 'giiiiirly' she will face me and start moving towards me trying to go through the glass to get to me. I take her out and put her on my bed but she doesn't move much.  At first she would crawl all over me and sit and when I would place my hand out in front of her she wouldn't care at all and just slowly and calmly move up and over it. Now she moves away from my hand and gets very startled and curls up. I can't see why. I don't have loud noises or sudden movements. I wait for her to get comfortable before I start touching her. It confuses me on how to get her used to me. I have wanted her for so long I just want her to feel comfortable. Also her humidity and temp in her cage is good and she eats and drinks. I've noticed she cleans her mandibles a lot too. Help with advice on handling her please?

    Hmm. Maybe she is getting close to molting? Or something else in her environment may be off which is just causing her to be feel more uncomfortable with things. Does she have a good place to hide? Or maybe you are just catching her at her 'off times'. All tarantulas have times when they are more irritable and just like to be left alone. I would just keep trying and hopefully she will warm up to you again.

    I have had our rose hair since 2003 and just recently she has had green spots show up on her back and abdomen. Any idea of what causes this?

I bought some moneywort from petsmart, and a leaf of onion plant made it into the bag (and my tank), do you think this will grow?

    Might as well try. Usually they propagate via the offshoot bulbs. I have no idea if a leaf can actually root but no reason not to try. Right?
  • Alan - 2014-03-28
    If you haven't got your answer. NO... The leaf will not produce roots with this plant.

I have a 10 gallon tank with male guppies & cory catfish... I've been having issues with a brown & yellowish 'furry' coating on the sides of the tank and on the (artificial) plants & gravel... I've completely cleaned the tank and all of the accessories/d├ęcor more than once, but it comes back again... I did have one male guppy with a distended belly (protruding down & forward--like a big nose!)... I've taken him out, but want to know how to treat the issue AND what the cause may be...any suggestions?

I am trying to get a Goliath bird eater for my first tarantula. Would this be a good idea? I always thought it was pretty cool that a spider could get this big and I really would like to have one. The idea of a giant spider sitting on my shoulder while playing 360 sounds good. Please if anyone has any advice please comment.

I have three lionheads, one black, one orange, one gold and black. Also a black moor and a calico. They are all adorable. I am concerned for my big orange, as her head scales are growing down over the top of her eyes and she will soon be almost blind. Can the scales be cut back without hurting her? Does anyone know if there is anything I can do for her? She's my favorite!

    I don't know if they can be 'cut back', that sounds a little intrusive to me. It may just be her genetic makeup. These fish are breed for a number of things, with a large cap being one of them. I hope she will be alright, but I don't know that you can physically alter this. Perhaps another reader can give you a better idea.

    I currently have two lionheads in a 28 gallon tank. They are both about 2 inches. I'd like to add one more but I am concerned about stunting them. They are so adorable, just like all the others say.
