    I've got a ten gallon tank that I recently refurnished. Natural colored stones, one large piece of driftwood, and large orange rock. Currently it's housing a male betta, 2 pygmy corydoras, a honey gourami, and a dwarf gourami. The betta displayed some territorial behavior at first, flaring...

    My new Kenyan Sand boas!

    I'd really love to eventually get a kenyan. Small, not too fast, and pretty low maintenance.

    It really upsets me when people talk about hurting hamsters..

    Hamsters are not nutritionally good for a snake to eat. Rats and mice are better, and yes a lot of people feed frozen/thawed you have to kill the mice/rats in order to freeze them, you can't use ones that died of natural causes. Snakes eat animals alive in the wild, as do thousands of other...

    I bought a new betta at Walmart. I have a question

    My betta is a 10gallon with a filter and heater. There's a few pygmy corydoras in there too and he pretty much ignores them. I feed Hikari for the betta and sinking bottom feeder food for the corys. It's been working for me.

    My Rat setup

    How often do they get out for free range time? They are super intelligent and need lots of stimulation. I also recommend putting in a hide for them to sleep in, even just an empty tissue box will work. I had 3 and they were amazing. No one could ever replace Jacy, my little alpha girl. She...

    Bear Market in Boas: Proposed Laws Strangle Sales of Mutant Snakes

    I just don't like how they're using the term "mutant". Yes, it's a mutation that causes the coloration but it makes them sound like freaks. When I hear "mutant snakes" I think of two headed ones and such.

    quesion about Dumbo rat.

    Any kind of rat can go together, fancy, dumbo, rex, or hairless. However, there is a process you have to go through to introduce rats safely. Keep the new rat in quarantine for at least a week once you get it. Then put the cages close enough that the rats can see and smell each other but not...

    1.5 Gal

    I've heard different things about what bettas need. But he was a happy little guy, pretty active, built me lots of nests. Ate well. I've had apple snails and they breed like crazy. Not fun. They end up everywhere.
