I came home one day and my Pleco was bleeding from the mouth. My only other fish is my arowana...he is loyal and lets me pet him! I love my fish and will stay a loyal arowana owner!

    Hi everyone!
    I just had to share my story with other Arowana enthusiasts. I'm discovering mine is letting me "pet" it. Yes...I did say pet it! It's AMAZING! I have a pretty big tank 55 gal...with other beautiful freshwater fish. They all live in harmony & I call it my "Happy Tank". I love them all...they're my family! BUT...I must say...I'm smitten w/ my Wana...whose about 14-15 inches now. It started about a couple of weeks ago. I just slightly & lightly would take my forefinger & middle finger @ let it "slide" through my fingers. What an incredible feeling! Lately...it's letting me hand glide its body. It doesn't freak out & keeps turning back for more! Anyone else have such a great experience? And...who says fish can't be great pets?!? :-)))

I am intrested in finding a breeder of goliath or gargantuan bird spiders. I would prefer zebra striped or pink foot. I am a knowlegable exotic pet owner who has raised several large reptiles and black emperor scorpions from babies to adult and want to move on to arachnids with the most beautiful exotic. I am smart enough to kow these are not handled pets, but I want to raise a potential mating male or female that can produce excellent young. Looking for info on ordering and price of specimen. Any info is appreciated. My email is breese343@yahoo.com

    Try feeding her something that she has never eaten before like a lizard. I had the same problem for a little bit she was just sick of her mouse only diet.
  • Derek Ross - 2014-10-22
    Uh, actually, to both of you (hoping its not too late, for then or any new current or future tarantulas) its not healthy to feed them mammals or other small animals like rodents or reptiles. Terrestrial tarantulas mostly eat large insects and very rarely animals, as they dont have all the proper enzymes to break them down and get all the possivle nutrients out of it like theyd be able to by eating a grasshopper and crickets. He is right about changing up the diet though.

Hello, I just bought (Saturday) my first female Theraphosa blondi and I'm really enjoying her. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. She's sweet in nature, I even gently tested her with prongs at the pet store and she showed no agression. Naturally she's skittish so I have to go really, really, really slow in my movements. This morning I gently pet her legs without a fuss. Maybe (and I expect) her to change in time, maybe when she becomes sexually mature her temper will be more agressive. Now she measure about 6 inches in leg span, maybe more. I haven't found a name for her yet but I will find soon.
I just felt like sharing with you my new T. blondi.
Have a nice day!
PF

    Awesome! I'm planning on getting one as a spiderling and I'm hoping I can teach it to be extremely playful. I heard Blondis are mean but on this site I've seen a few examples of them being nice. But I would want to hold her and find ways to play with her so I'm hoping. If you could give me any advice I would really appreciate it! My emaik is green.shoelace2@gmail.com

I have had my T. blondi for a few months now and she is so sweet. I don't hold her unless I have to move her to clean her cage because she is nervous and kicks hairs and I don't want to stress her out. But she never bites or tries to bite. She stays hidden most of the time and if I lift her hide, she runs out just long enough to be seen and then goes back under to hide again. She is a voracious eater--she had her 3rd pinky last week! I have 10 other tarantulas as well. I have 3 rose hairs, the goliath, a greenbottle blue, Indian Ornamental, Gooty Ornamental, Togo starburst, Antilles pink toe, curly hair, and Brazilian salmon bird eater. They are a great hobby and interesting to watch and care for.

Last Saturday 10/18/14 I went to my moms.I came home later that night and found my male sugar glider (Fred) dead in the bottom of his cage. I investigated because the night before he was like he always was so happy and full of spunk. As I was investigating I found his face and stomach was wet but the cage and everything in it was dry. Then I noticed his favorite to was the only item in his cage wet it did not smell like he soiled it. It was like someone poured water from the top of his cage while he was looking up while playing on his toy.but no one was home with him but I have noticed someone has been coming while me and my husband are gone. Can someone please give me some of their input. Thanks for yalls time.

Hey I want to get a teddy guinea pig. They are so adorable! But I worry it might get lonely. My mother said i could have 1 so what do i do to make it happy? Just play with it and let it run around under supervision for a while? I will do what ever it takes to make it happy healthy and comfortable. Could I get help with this?

    These are very social animals, herd types actually, and they really should have a companion. If they must be kept alone you will need to provide daily interaction and make sure it never goes for too long without attention. Even still, it may get depressed, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that. The best thing to do is ask you mother to let you get two... easier for you and much easier for the guinea pig.

Samantha Feliciano - 2014-10-15
Hello, I have purchased my violet Magnificent Anemone on October 4th of this year. It has been a little over a week and my one clown fish is maddly in love with it along with two anemone crabs leaving my second clown fish depressed looking. My problem is not the Anemone it is when purchasing the anemone I was forced to buy the peice of rock it was attached to ( I am guessing this is where the Dino came from, considering I did not have this problem ever before). Within 3 days the tank went from crystal clear to being covered in a brown snotty substance (which today I finally figured that it is Dinoflagellates, I was mistaking it for bubbly algae). I did some research and they say that using the 'Blackout Method' (letting the lights out for 72 hours) is best. My concern is, will this kill my anemone from depriving it from light for that long? Are there other ways that I can get rid of this Dinoflagellates?

    Well, you could certainly try reducing the amount of light for a period of time.  Apparently it does work to eliminate dino with 3 days of no light, but it puts a lot of toxins in the tank and the oxygen levels get very low, so a protein skimmer and possibly air pumps will be needed, as well as large water changes. Really can't say what will happen in advance. Watch the anemone closely to see if it starts to decline. If it does seem to be struggling you would then need to correct again, and make its needs the priority. You may want to move it to another aquarium during the lights out process.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-10-21
    Personally I'd be very careful with H2O2. I don't know much about it, but from what I've read there are reports of it killing snails and shrimp; also fish, especially any that known to be particularly sensitive. Also if it flows through your filters biomedia, it can kill nitrifying bacteria, which can cause major problems. I would definitely research it heavily before attempting it, and even then I would be very cautious.
  • Samantha - 2014-10-21
    Thank you for your reply. I attempted to reduce the lighting in the tank and it seemed to upset the Anemone. I think that I will be proceeding with the black out method, but I will be moving my Magnificent to another tank first along with the hosting crabs and Clown fish. I already have a protein skimmer but I will attempt to find an air pump. What do you think about also using the H2O2 method along with the blackout method? Then do a very big water change at the end of the blackout to reduce the H2O2, Ammonia, nitrate and phosphate levels?
