I have an Abyssinian female around 3 years old, her past owner's didn't treat her well. I have had her for a while now and think we have bonded. I would really like to train her to come when I call her name but I don't know how, any tips?:-)

    I live in LA and it's hard for me to find an Abyssinian guinea pig. Any ideas where I can possibly get one?
  • Catalina Davidoiu - 2014-10-02
    Hi, how do you know if she's a female? i have an abyssinian too, and it's 2 months old, and i don't know if its a female or a male. she/he has a rosette on the back that looks like a dress, like a tutu. So can you tell me? please? thanks!

I just purchase a Chinese Hillstream Loach from an unfamilier pet shop I had never been too. They are selling them under the name "Stingray Pleco". Very cool little fish. After this read I'll go back and get it some friends.
Thanks for all the helpful information.

    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

When I was living in san jose in a pet store I saw some very strange fish they were black with a dark brown/dark dusty gray undertone they had no scales they were very smooth and slick-looking they looked almost like seahorses with no bumps that had been uncurled and stretched except they looked slimy like eels they had a long fin running down their back and seahorse snouts they were swimming through the pipes between the tanks but one of them stopped, lifted its head out of the water, and looked at me. I was a little ways behind it so it literally lifted its head and some of its neck out of the water, twisted its neck like a human would, and looked at me and its eyes looked way too intelligent to be a fish's eyes and they didn't seem to care if the water was warm or cold because they went between a tropical tank and a goldfish tank if someone knows what these are please leave an answering comment.

    it depends on what type of fish they were. Instead of goldfish it might of been a red devil. They look a lot like goldfish but they are not. The fish you saw was still probably a spiny eel because its snout that you described sounded a lot like the snout of a spiny eel.

Wendy - 2007-11-12
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 just gained a Sulcata and he is about 12 lbs. I would also love to see some pics or ask mkore questions. I live in Mesa and we are trying to figure out how to build him (Mikey) something for the upcoming winter months. nmagnanti@cox.net

Can I keep a clown knife in a 20 gallon tank with 3 Black Ghost Knifes, 2 Butterflyfish, 4 Elephantnose, 1 Bichir, and 1 Red-tailed Shark? I also have three apple snails. Would the Clown Knifefish damage my Amazon sword plants or my water lilies?

    Dude No way, that's already waaay too many fish for a 20 gallon tank. Get a 125 at least if your bgk and nosers are getting along.
  • Anonymous - 2010-10-13
    Yes they will get along but you have too many fish in that tank, you might want to upgrade soon.
  • Warren - 2010-10-15
    You can keep a clown knife with your fish in a 20 gallon temporarily. A clown knife is a large growing fish and would out grow a 20 gallon and your other fish.
  • Shaun - 2010-10-18
    No i would not keep this fish in anything smaller than 125g+. It will be a 20+ inch monster. I would also not get the ghost knifes as they will get 20+.
  • Evelyn McCloy - 2014-09-30
    Only if you add three oscars and several Dow's cichlids, and, space permitting, a goat or two-rick

I have a gold clown knife and he is in a 45 gallon. Can he live in there forever with other 3 cichlids?

    If he gets along fine with the cichlids, there is no reason they can't stay together. My main concern would be that the tank is too small. These knifefish can get quite large and a 45 gallon tank will not be big enough in the long term.
  • Benny Moreno - 2013-06-14
    yes he can, mind did.
  • Evelyn McCloy - 2014-09-30
    Given that cichlids comprise such an extremely large family, and with so many varying traits, and sizes it is impossible to say that fish A will get along with cichlids.  You need to be more specific; i.e., what would do well with a severum would not be sure to be best buds with a Midas cichlids-----rick

I have three blood Parrotfish for about five years now and notice that one of them is developing small holes in its forehead between the eyes. They do not seem to be infected but one of them is getting quite deep. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do? I'd certainly appreciate it. The residents of this retirement community really enjoy them. Thanks

    It sounds like you are describing what is called Hole-in-the-head disease or Lateral Line disease. It is usually seen in oscars and other large cichlids. It is not fatal and has been something of a mystery as to the exact cause. Non-optimal water conditions are what is usually cited as the cause. Also a diet that is not varied enough. There are medications which work with varying success rates, but it is usually suggested to improve conditions in order to halt the advance of the disease.

    The South African Department of Labor reported last month that the nation has too few jobs for unskilled labourers. The department also said there are not enough workers for highly skilled positions.
