Daily reminder that if a cat has ever bitten you while being petted, even the smallest bite, you're bad at petting.

A small gently bite from cat can be considered as a kiss.

After a long break due to financial reasons I have decided to go back to my hobby. I can't seem to pick between setting up a mixed mbuna or Tropheus tank. I have never looked after Tropheus but many people are crazy for them. Do Tropheus display and interesting to watch behavior that mbunas wouldn't be capable of?
>>
Troph tanks are great, don’t get me wrong, but to get conditions right for them is downright miserable or at least where I live (stupid hard water that comes out at 7.1ph and RO water is a bear to stabilize at troph alkalinity). Mbunas will give you the same fish to fish interactions that trophs will without the further increased alkalinity. I’ve found that the cost and time on a Mbuna tank is far lower than that of a troph tank, where as the rewards are similar. Don’t get me wrong, I love my mooriis and pollis, but I get the same satisfactions from them that I do my Maylandia and labidochromis. Go for the Mbuna IMO.

shut up you impoverished imbecile. mbuna are shit tier fish. its not that fucking hard to put some crushed coral or cichlid sand in a tank to keep the pH and hardness up. tropheus are a lot more fun. Just have to be sure to get a lot of them. I'd recommend 20 juveniles to start a tank. Around here you can get good money for the troph babies as well. Mbuna you can't even get rid of most of the time besides a few particular varieties. My personal favorite is the Ikola kaiser, a big group of them is like a hive of bumblebees!

Hey, I was curious if anyone could give me some help.
I have very small, limited living space, but I want a pet. Policy says we can have, basically, anything that can fit into a small aquarium or tank.

Does anyone know of a fish or other aquatic creature like a snail or something that would be easy to take care of? I'm not too smart and I'm gone for a lot of the day at work. If it's a smaller one that can handle a smaller tank or bowl, that'd be great too.

I live alone and don't have any friends, so I'd like a fish-friend. Thanks for the assistance.

Cherry shrimp are pretty easy if you've got limited space, as long as you give them some plants.

Guppies are some of the hardiest fish out there just chuck a few in a bowl with some plants, change the water whenever you can and call it a day.

What's the biggest you can go? If you can go with a 20 gallon (high or long, doesn't matter) you can keep an African clawed frog. They're really smart and will eat out of your hands. Mine have developed personalities that help me tell which are which (for example: only one of my males will bite my fingers). Just make sure to either have no substrate or use sand cause gravel will hurt them, and big rocks will trap crap and make water quality terrible. Also they do better in tanks with a lot of plants.

Danios are great fish, and jungle Val make great start plants.

Start between 10 and 20. Use the carbon filter for the first 40 days the fish and plants are in there, but switch to filter floss and foam after. Keep the light on while you’re up and off when you sleep. Don’t let direct sunlight hit the tank. Seachem makes great products like prime and stability to get the tank started (Insert Nitrogen Cycle Plug here). Good luck mate.

This is complicated, for example some old sick people kinda want old and sick looking dogs, they can't connect to another type of the dog. Pugs, shih tsus, you know the type. So these will always around and even will get MORE popular because this crop of "eww children suck" manchild millennials are going to be this kind of old lonely sick folk very soon, ready for the pet pugs snotty embrace.

I had a Basenji mix that became obese because he supplemented his diet by hunting wild animals. The vet was so mad at us, but he was so good at killing small animals that he remained fat his entire life.

I've been waking up with itches the past week so I started looking for bed bugs and found these two things. Their bellys look too round and their antennae seem too long to be bed bugs, but I don't know for sure. Anybody knowledgeable on bugs willing to help?
