Aw man! I wish we had a Serpentarium around here Sakura.

I want two concentric Diamondback Terrapins.

(like these)


They look and act like little puppy dogs. :p My Eastern Box Turtle is my only turtle right now though. EBTs are very much like Russian Tortoises as well. I have a 4ft long X 3ft wide X almost 2ft tall indoor enclosure for her. :)

My BF has three of his friends over and they are gaming downstairs. I am about to paint for a bit in a little while. I haven't painted in almost two weeks!

1 Doberman Mix: Emmy, 2 DSH Cats: Rowan & Jacob, 1 Bearded Dragon: Rainier (aka Mista Lizad Man), 1 Eastern Box Turtle: Greta, Two 5g tanks: Alchemy (Halfmoon) and Custard (Yellow VT)

No.. Fish are double bagged and both of the bags popped. This guy sent me Four fish and two if the bags popped! I was soo mad. There was absolutely no water in the bags when I received them.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

how did they pop??

Quote:
Aw those plecos are TINY
Yeah - they are pretty small but they are only like 3-4 inches as adults. Still they are like 5X bigger then the bristlenoses were.

I seen one today. I saw his side fins sticking out from under a rock.
Not sure where the other one is hiding...
I'll look for them tonightas I should clean it, which I hate doing because its a 20ish gallon storage bin thats on the floor. That means the siphon will not work and I have to push it into the bathroom, take the 1 gallon and scopp out enough water till I can lift it and dump the rest in the tub. Massive PAIN IN THE RUMP. am I killing the cycle every time I do this? the bacteria is mostly in the filter, right?

are rabbit snails asexual?

That sucks Mo.
I dont like ordering fish online myself. The ebay seller I got the 2 clown plecos from did an awsome job with packaging but the AB seller I tried before that - the heating pack was cold, the water was leaking out, there was food? in the bag one was DOA and I think the other one was sick? It died a few days later. For bettas, i don't mind getting them from petco as they are usually in bad shape and I feel good about helping one poor sole. However I am leary about ANYTHING from their community tank. Plus their selection is not that great anyways. Petsmart is 40 miles away, and they have a nice selection of fish - sharks, cichilds, knifefish but I don't have big enough tanks for 99% of what they have or its not compatable with bettas.
