We have 2 Oranda Goldfish and they are the most friendly fish I have had. We have them along with two other small goldfish in a 75 gallon tank. We cannot seem to keep the ammonia level at 0...It ranges from .25 to 1.0 every day. We are beside ourselves as we now are changing and vacuuming the water every day...We have no idea what else to do. We add Prime and feed only once Everything else reads normal and we are lost as to what to do or not to do. We have tried everything...please hopefully someone can help us remedy this

    Has the tank been cycled completely and u shud def have like a fluval filter . Doing constant water changes is not good. Do it once a week consistently and no more than 20 percent . If he she is acting normal and eating and u do only one water change a week and have the proper cycle time b4 u added the fish eventually it will even out. Fish do seem to acclimate to water parametersgoing a lil up n down the important thing is that the water parameters don’t change drastically in a small Amt of time. I have a feeling the daily water changes r the problem Good luck

Our lutino, Beaker, was hand raised in 1990. He's very sweet and beautiful. He has been known to chew the edges off an expensive paper lampshade and also the gilt off an antique picture frame! After that, we learned our lesson and keep his wings slightly clipped so he will stay on our shoulder. He goes outside with us, loves the garden dirt, goes nuts for fresh raspberries, and screeches shrilly at other birds. He becomes very agitated if we walk away from him. While in the care of a friend, he watched their female bird shred paper for her nest. Now his favorite pasttime is shredding paper, in cage or out! He also lifts the moveable doors on his cage and lets them smash down. This he does over and over w/o giving up as his signal that he wants to come out. It can become quite annoying!
One thing: the lovebird DOES NEED COMPANIONSHIP!! He will get sick w/o it; we learned this the hard way. He became neurotic and began chewing his back end, pulling out the feathers until he was bald and raw! We had to love him back to health and now make a point of always touching him and letting him out on our shoulder. We wear a towel clipped with a clothespin to keep our shirt clean, and after he has been loved, he nestles in our neck or under our chin. While on our shoulder he eats our human food and takes frequent drinks of water. He loves a water bath and takes one every day with his cool, fresh water.

I just got my little half moon conure 3 weeks ago. I bought him from a bird store with a liberal return policy. A family had bought him and he was returned for biting the children. After 2 days the biting stopped. He steps up nicely with both my husband and I. He says peek a boo. I talk to him a lot so I am hoping for more talking. He is about 1 yo. We are totally enchanted with him! We named him Tito.

Jellyfish and sea jellies are the informal common names given to the medusa-phase of certain gelatinous members of the subphylum Medusozoa, a major part of the phylum Cnidaria. Jellyfish are mainly free-swimming marine animals with umbrella-shaped bells and trailing tentacles, although a few are not mobile, being anchored to the seabed by stalks. The bell can pulsate to provide propulsion and highly efficient locomotion. The tentacles are armed with stinging cells and may be used to capture prey and defend against predators. Jellyfish have a complex life cycle; the medusa is normally the sexual phase, the planula larva can disperse widely and is followed by a sedentary polyp phase. Jellyfish are eaten by humans in certain cultures, being considered a delicacy in some Asian countries, where species in the Rhizostomae order are pressed and salted to remove excess water. They are also used in research, where the green fluorescent protein, used by some species to cause bioluminescence, has been adapted as a fluorescent marker for genes inserted into other cells or organisms. The stinging cells used by jellyfish to subdue their prey can also injure humans. Many thousands of swimmers are stung every year, with effects ranging from mild discomfort to serious injury or even death; small box jellyfish are responsible for many of these deaths. When conditions are favourable, jellyfish can form vast swarms. These can be responsible for damage to fishing gear by filling fishing nets, and sometimes clog the cooling systems of power and desalination plants which draw their water from the sea.

I'm sure if a bird parent bought a bird from a pet store it might seem unfathomable to feed your bird alcohol, but remember where the bird is indigenous to countries that make wine, and they are free flying birds in their country of origin. Please respect others and learn more before you make comments and believe that bird owners are abusing their birds by giving them something that the birds are used to by nature.

    I'm sorry but feeding a pionus or ANY BIRD alcohol is the same as putting them in a plastic bag and tieing closed and expecting it to be alive when you come back. Absolutely terrible advice and others 'correcting' this idea will save novice bird owners from making a terrible and unreverrsible action. Alcohol,chocolate, avacodoes, teflon coated cookware and air fresheners like fabreeze as well as household cleaners will all poision and most often in certain quantities WILL KILL a bird within minutes of ingesting them or even just being nearby where they are being used. This is why it is of the upmost importance that any bird owner that cares for and loves their bird NOT USE these items or feed them to any bird. If it causes hurt feelings to the person advocating such practices when caring for a bird, well it's better than the alternative outcome. The items I mentioned are by no means the only things bad for a bird but they are the easiest and most common household items that are irreversibly detrimental to a birds life. PLEASE BELIVE THIS TO BE TRUE. Over the past 35 years of having and caring for many different species of birds I have seen and heard it all so I'm speaking not only from a book 'educated' experience but also from seeing first hand what new bird owners have unwittingly done to their birds. That is why I always suggest any person that is getting a bird educate themselves through legitimate means not only about the practices of caring for their new bird but also researching different species of birds that they are interested in getting. With just a little effort anyone wanting to add a bird to their lives can save themselves a lot of heartbreak and more importantly the life and wellbeing of said bird. Not only is it important to know the needs of housing your bird and what your bird needs physically to be happy and healthy but it's just as important that you get the right species of bird that fits your situation. It is far better to educate yourself in this way to avoid another unwanted bird that has to find another home. It is our responsibility as a good person and a great pet owner to do these things before acquiring any pet.

ALCOHOL KILLS BIRDS!!!!! It is a very bad and irresponsible thing to give any bird and this person has been very lucky to still have a bird if he really is giving it alcohol that often. PLEASE dont feed your bird alcohol it absolutely has nothing to do with a birds ability to mimic so each. I have raised many species of birds and specifically 4 different species of pionus over the last 35 years.
