    I posted this in the Vents and Rant forum, but thought I would post it here too as it pertains to chins. A few months ago I went to a Petco and instantly feel in love with chinchillas. I went home and researched for three weeks and finally decided that I had the lifestyle and capabilities to...

    A few months ago I went to a Petco and instantly feel in love with chinchillas. I went home and researched for three weeks and finally decided that I had the lifestyle and capabilities to support the needs of a chinchilla. So, in February I went and picked one - his eyes were clear and...

Overnight the mother did not have any more, but she is still fat. How long does it take for the rest of the babies to be born?? Should I leave...

    I have a 3 month old freshwater tank. It's a 9 gallon biube, planted tank with 7 guppies. I noticed a small snail on the log one day about 2 months ago, but I never saw it again so I figured something had killed it. The other day, however, I saw about 40 little snails crawling EVERYWHERE! I...

    I've been working at the fair for the week and I was saddened to see the way these hermit crabs were treated , sold as prizes and such. They were in a 25 gallon and there were about 40 of them in there :mad2: So I asked if I could by some, so far they've let me get two, I'm trying hard to save...

    I had such a crappy day! I had my first physics lab this afternoon and it was horrable! I was getting so frustrated with it I almost started crying. To top it all off, it took me forever to do the work because I was having trouble understanding it so I didn't get out of class in time to go to...

    Cycling A Freshwater Aquarium Here's a common scenario: Someone buys a new tank and goes out the next day and buys fish. They die within weeks and the person assumes they just "aren't good with fish" and gives up. It doesn't have to be that way. The reason those fish probably died was because...

    I got two african dwarf frogs and I tried to feed them frog bites, flake betta food, and pellet betta food. Neither one of them seem to have eaten anything at all. It kind of looks like one is trying to mate with the other. Does anyone know how often and how much they eat. Or if therre are any...

Just list your food & treat recipes!:eat: I feed mine crushed cuttle bone, white rice, oats, fish food, aquarium salt, and cammercial crab food all mixed together! They LOVE it...

    theres a snail in the 10gal tank, hes hanging out on the heater.. i would assume he came with the plants.. prolly should have rinsed them better.. didnt think about it, since we were putting them in an empty tank. So now what? Alot of stuff i read said to take him out, and 'dispose' of him...

    Well about 2 years ago after all my fish had died I put my tank away. Now I've decided to set it up again, but I don't remember everything about setting it up. How long are you supposed to wait before getting fish? Can you put plants in right away or should you wait too? Any other advise would...
