Emphasis on might.
Anyways, my mom really doesn’t want me having any more tanks, but I think I’ll be able to convince her if it’s under ten gallons. The tank I’m looking at is this one: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11459461&f=PAD%2FpsNotAvailInUS%2FNo
(In case you…
So, I would not recommend putting cory cats in a tank that’s that small, and definitely not with a betta. I recommend nerite snails if you plan on getting anything with a betta in a tank that small. Nerite snails are also really good algae eaters, so that’s a plus.
As for sand substrate. Well, sand isn’t very good for a planted tank because it causes root rot, and that’s something you do not want. if you want to stick with sand you can use it as a cap for soil, but I’m not sure if you’d want a soil/dirt tank for your first planted tank. And if you do go with dirt, you’re going to need higher lighting. If you try to use sand as a cap with plant-specific substrate, the sand will eventually sink to the bottom and the special substrate to the top. If you do go with plant-specific substrate, I recommend eco-complete. Unless of course you use plants that are specifically meant to be tied to rocks and such (anubis, java fern, ect.), then you can use sand. Hope this helps!
watching the vampire diaries with no sound is super weird. the show borderlines creepy with no sound.
I get shes going to bark some times (especially when theres a cat in the garden) but at the moment she barks like crazy at every tiny thing.
Its got to stop, shes doing everyones head in
We’ve tried ignoring it and praising quiet
We’ve tried telling her off
We’ve tried removing anything that could make her want to bark but nothing is working
Almost all behavior problems, including barking, happens because of pent-up energy. A good solution is to exercise your dog every morning to tire them out. Another good thing is to bring them to doggy daycare if they are good with other dogs. Under-stimulation will always result in unwanted behaviors in our dogs.
Never yell at your dog, especially a high-alert or barking one. And don’t use spray bottles, shock collars, etc to stop barking because although it might get them to stop it’s only out of fear. We want to get our dogs to stop voluntarily, so we need to break/interrupt the behavior we don’t want. Another important way to stop barking is to prevent it from happening. If your dog is about to bark, interrupt her before she does, get her attention, and put her in a sit or something similar, then praise heavily.
Watch this. He’s a really good trainer that focuses on positive reinforcement.
what a cutie! but just a reminder you should always adopt. “designer” dogs are cute, but why spend loads of money when you can just go to your local shelter and adopt a doggy in need. most of them are much healthier too. ;)
i’ve been putting “dog” on my christmas list since before i could remember, and i’m twenty. wonder if my parents realize that i want a dog.
i hope they kill off jared gilmore and keep robbie kay as henry. please, this is such a good opportunity!
I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t need to put your animals through surgery to please yourself.
If your situation is that severe that your only option is to remove part of your cats toes to protect your couches then maybe rehoming the poor thing is the answer.
