Q: What animal can be kept in a tank just under 3 gallons?

CharlieI recently had a pet beetle larvae pass away, leaving me with an empty tank. Seeing the empty tank just sitting there makes me pretty sad, so I was wondering if it was a good size for anything else. It's a Imagitarium Pet Keeper for Aquarium Fish, Medium. Using the dimensions, I figure it holds a...

Q: Puppy barks at other dogs

OddDevWe have a 13 weeks old hybrid puppy. It's a mix between a black Labrador, Golden retriever and Australian Shepard. She is very happy to meet other dogs and gets along with most of them. The problem is that she barks a lot and constantly in different situations. These scenarios include, when... ...

10:33 AM
@Henders Catfish or pleco? Looks more like a pleco to me.
Good morning!!
Morning Richie
Good weekend?
@RichieACC yeah not bad, yourself?
Pretty good. I was without electricity for 10 hours yesterday. That wasn't so great. But I did get to do some offline stuff that I would not have if I'd been able to play games :D
@RichieACC ouch.. 10 hour power cut sucks
10:42 AM
The cyclone that hit Mozambique cut some lines. That took 4000MW out of our grid.
@RichieACC wow.. in those circumstances getting it back in 10 hours isn't actually half bad!
We don't have it back. We're on rotational blackouts.
So they turn power off to sections of the grid at a time so that the entire grid doesn't collapse, like happened in Venezuela.
@RichieACC ahh.. spoke too soon
@RichieACC Bristlenose catfish
It's hard to get pictures of the plec at the moment, he's hiding a lot recentl
Ah.. wikipedia to the rescue...
Ancistrus is a genus of nocturnal freshwater fish in the family Loricariidae of order Siluriformes, native to freshwater habitats in South America and Panama. Fish of this genus are common in the aquarium trade where known as bushynose or bristlenose catfish. Sometimes, they are called bushynose or bristlenose plecos instead, but this may lead to confusion as "pleco" usually is used for Hypostomus plecostomus and a few of its close relatives but is also classed and or sold as a pleco by most places. == Taxonomy == The type species is Ancistrus cirrhosus. This genus is the largest genus within the...

@Henders Is it by any chance that your fish is eating cucumber?
11:05 AM
@Sonevol Yes, they love it :D
Q: Goldfish behaviour after medication

NejlaMy goldfish was showing signs of illness, then started shredding it tail, loosing its colour - I did a compete water change and cleaned the filter and tank/gravel. purchased some tri sulfa tablets. Once I added these into the tank the fish sunk to the bottom, very little movement - after 20 mins...

@trondhansen have you ever brushed your cat's teeth every day one after waking up from sleep at morning and once before going to sleep at night?
12:01 PM
@Sonevol no i have not.i have never had any need to do it.not a single cat i have had have developed any tooth problem :)
I think @RebeccaRVT was saying something similar about brushing a dogs teeth
12:27 PM
brushing the teeth of a mini tiger scares me a little LOL.
you can always use brushes.............two types of brushes are available, one which is like a rubber to worn on your finger................and other a real toothbrush but particularly designed for cats
And why are companies making toothpaste if useless?
12:47 PM
they do it to get hold of your cash,pets can get tooth problems but most of them do not.
It's not like animals in the wild need toothbrushes
1:17 PM
Apparently a lot of older dogs can get dental issues depending on their diets.
1:42 PM
I have the vets do a dental cleaning on my cats, none of them want anything to do with the toothbrush.
Beatrice has officially made it 7 days now without any "accidents." I'm very proud of her!
@AllisonC woohoo!!
I think I found a better solution for when I'm away for about a week next week too, I don't want her out but I also don't want to separate her off to a larger cage in another room, so I'll be setting up the empty room that's nearly done being renovated as a "cat room" for a few days.
@AllisonC sounds like a good shout.. gives her some space but minimizes the damage potential
And between the scattered cat furniture I have and the dog blankets my roommate is willing to loan me, we should be able to make it fairly comfortable for them for a few days.
2:05 PM
@AllisonC any new picture?
2:18 PM
Nothing new but here's an older one
From last week or so. She doesn't sit still much and I've been busy with event prep. :)
2:29 PM
I have been so careless in bringing up Bhutu............she recognizes only human hand and feet as acceptable play toy to be pounced upon...........she doesn't even care about cat toys now

Q: Cat stopped using litter robot

Hayley GlassMy cats have been using the litter robot consistently for a few months. Recently one of them has been pooping in the same corner instead of the litter robot. What do I do?

Q: Alternatives for helping/treating swim bladder issue in betta

GwendolynI've finally figured out my betta must have a swim bladder issue. Luckily, he's floating at the top of his tank, so I don't have to worry about him struggling to get air. However, I'm struggling to figure out how to cure him. I've heard that this issue doesn't mean they are in pain, but I feel re...
