What is the largest crab you can realistically keep as a pet? I'm looking for something bulky like a rock crab, but nothing too spindly or flat like spider crab or blue crab. It also needs to be something you can get in the U.S. so coconut crabs are out of the question.
If you invest in a bigass saltwater setup with a huge chiller you can get sheep crabs or dungeness crabs at asian markets. If you want freshwater, you can sometimes find african mud crabs also at asian markets.
>>2058359 I wish there was some way to outlaw traditional 1 gallon fish bowls. I wouldn't be surprised to hear 99% of betta fish get shoved in those things their whole lives if not just kept in their store containers.
Discuss anything aquarium related here, including inhabitants, decor and issues.
Google is your friend. Feel free to ask questions but know that there are a lot of resources out there that could answer your question a lot faster and accurately than /an/.
Make sure to include these things in your post before asking because we can't help you if we don't have the full picture: -tank size -parameters -any and all inhabitants + how long you've... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If I'm doing 50% water changes from dosing EI ferts is it ok to use room temperature tap water? I am working with a 50 gal tank and only have a few 5 gallon buckets, so keeping 25 gallons of cold tap water and letting it heat up to tank temperature would be difficult.
How old, typically, are the rainbow sharks you pick up at pet stores? Just got my first shark yesterday, and he's probably less than an inch and a half long. How long does it normally take for them to reach their full size?

Many states like Tennessee and New York are turning to this as a solution to prevent animals abuse, but it also serves the dual purpose of >identifying violence against children, families and future killers of humans.

>>2058290 >Unconstitutional provision This law, if signed into effect, will not last. Michigan is one of those states, too, where these laws get made and dumped in a matter of years because no one wants to put up with it, rather, the people getting in trouble, won't put up with it.
This is going to sound really fucking retarded, but how/can I mentally communicate with animals? There's a red tailed hawk at work that isn't showing any signs of recovering from his neurological issues (he was hit by a car), and my boss will be having him euthanized on Wednesday.
Going to put this in greentext because I don't want to make it long.

>>2058206 Also, he's leeching off my friends grandpa. They both kinda are, but she's close to her grandpa. They live there for free. Ask money from him. Sprung this dog on him last second. They guy is pretty much dying. He says he's keeping the dog inside but its only a matter of time before he chains him up too. And as far as I know, this guy has never taken an animal to the vet.
Also likes to joke about this time he ran over a cats leg. Almost killed my kitten and laughed about it. At my house. In my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can /An/ help me what breed is my Thomas? I had him or six months now. He was a feral kitten when i got him. But ive never quite found what kind of breed he is. Ive only asked one other person, my neighbor. She has some 4 or 5 cats. She thinks shes some sort of mane coon
Personally not a fan. Barking is your dogs main way of communicating. It's like if someone put that on you but whenever you talked, it'd shock you. Kinda puts a damper on things doesn't it? That being said, I've definitely seen dogs (or maybe more precisely, owners) That could use a bark collar.
Basically impossible to tell.. All fish, and especially so in marine fish (IMO), can have their own personalities. I've had clowns that are downright brutal to every other fish in the tank, and then I've had other clowns that are perfectly peaceful. Same goes for most of the things I've kept, especially crabs.
For the most part, as long as you have decently tempered fish (i.e. No assholes) and you don't stick a fish in with another fish it considers food, your good. Mainly stick away from damsels. Damsels are dicks, that you can never get out of your tank.
Beautiful animals must fit on at least three of these categories: 1. Wild 2. Exotic 3. Colorful 4. From the tropical rainforest 5. Makes loud but pleasant noises 6. Have long necks and/or legs 7. Aquatic/marine 8. Have "frill-like" extensions Examples: Peafowl, okapi, parrots, giraffe, jaguar, maned wolf, sea swallow, horse
Beautiful animals are different from cute animals, such as puppies, kittens and chicks. Non-beautiful animals such as tortoises and crows can still be pleasing to look at.
