Spartan was about 6 months or so when I got him. He grew a bit more afterwards.
Aww, that's nice of you to rescue :)

How old was Shiloh when you got him/her?

EDIT: Oh and what about the other 5-year-old?

The other 5 year old one was a pet buy about a year or older.

Shiloh had a torn beard, missing scales and torn fins. He was about 1 or so I'd say. He lived longer than I expected (considering the girl said "he won't make it")

I seem to be. With any animal really. Guineas with scurvy recover very well. Hopefully my beardie gets better too


-steers back onto the tracks-..... >.> I'm surprised my hands have not dried out with how many times I wash my hands.

So you would suggest that I wash my hands with soap, rinse thoroughly, and then air dry before feeding my betta?

Well now I'm all paranoid about the paper towel being contaminated! Which do you think is better?

Also yay I love guinea pigs! I want some but I'm not allowed to have any more pets.

Well in my house paper towel is best to use xD My bf works in a welding shop, and so using a towel is a no-no. If I had a towel it would be in my fish room for fish use only Really depends on the environment IMO. I avoid towels because they could have been dropped on the floor, used for dishes improperly cleaned, used to clean up a mess... Who knows anymore? x.x

Two guineas were severely sick when they gave them to me. Rabbit pellets and stale hay is not a diet. It's a torture.
