My dog is weird. He lets people in yard, but won't let them out. Why is that ? Is he trying to make people stay inside, so someone human can confront them ?
>>
he is clearly a human hoarder
>>
>>3243208
He is a Shepherd breed I take it? He loves to protect his flock of humans, he can't protect them if they leave the property.
>>
>>3243208

Has your dog worked in a prison previously? That might be it.
>>
>>3243208
Bored + shepherd instinct. Give him something to do.

My grandma had a Pekingese like that, it'd get up on the porch roof and jump down in front of people trying to leave to keep them in.
Although that little asshole also tried to take on two mastiffs that were walking by.

>Why does every resource say to not let them outside before they get vaccinated?

likely bc when they say "outside" this means areas highly frequented by dogs and potentially wild canids etc. - if you have a fenced in yard you can and should take the dog out there.

Any recommendations for plants and snails? I've had an interest in shrimp for awhile, but I've never really looked into setups. Is it more complicated than taking care of fish or fundamentally the same?
>>
>>3243581
Go with a 20 long if you can. It opens up a lot more options and is a great size for a beginner.
>>
>>3243596
I would also recommend at 20long, smaller tanks can be nice too, but you are more limited so you cant experiment as much.

Shrimps are super fun, i would recommend them to anyone. They are low maintenance if you have your tank going for a bit with some fish you dont even have to feed them that often (or at all). Only thing is that they are more sensetive to ammonia so you gotta male sure the water stays clean but thats all.

For the fish i would see you cover all bases, have fish that inhabit different layers (top/mid/bottom) so you make the most out of it.

Regarding plants i would recommend to start with fast growing ones and some floaters as they will consume more of the nitrate, nitrite and ammonia and help you stabilize the tank at the beginning.
You could also have plants hanging out of your tank, looks nice and helps cleaning the water a lot.

plants: Javafern, sessiliflora, ...google beginner plants
Floating plants: frogbit, pistia straiotes (would get duckweed as its a mess to remove if you ever wanna get rid of it.
Plants hanging in: pathos, bamboo, spider plant

The reflections off the duckweed and ambient light make them seem way darker than they are. Whole lot of light and its ada amazonia in the bottom under the gravel.
>>3243529
I havent yet. The plant life only sticks to the top, the filter is like 25x15cm. shouldnt have to clean it any time soon.

I've also got a vine that grows from my roof through a crack in my ceiling which I've led straight into another tank. Root system is due for another trim, its about the size of a baseball. It makes a great raft up round the edge of the tank. My male mahachai loves hiding under here.

How do Tibetan mastiffs actually look like /an/?

Google images is really confusing. On one picture you can see them looking like a giant fluffy bear like thing with mane and on the other something looking like Caucasian shepherd.
I've heard that those fluffy ones are actually uncommon as they are porduct of lots of surgeries for chinese millionaires to make them more appealing.
So I really wanted to see how would an actual Tibetan mastiff looks like in reality. How would a dog you can meet up in Tibet look like?
>>
This one looks like Newfoundland
>>
And this one like a shepherd you can meet in Caucasus

My friend has a tibetan mastiff. Im sure you can guess which one it is.

Doesn't count I asked for ten.
But seriously, the Chinese are just as bad, if not worse. At least the west learned from its mistakes, and that's why we have reintroduction programs like Pleistocene Park and all that money rich old people pump into African wildlife conversation so they could have a lions head in their living room.
Only the Chinese retain this backwards thinking. They are literal insects. They not only allow their native wildlife to go extinct, they bring their bloodlust into other countries with shit like the pangolin trade and stealing exotic turtle eggs to sell on the street for five yuan.

How to get rid of those little annoying pieces of shits? I'm growing stuff indoors (not weed) and apparently the potting soil was infected by those little assholes, and now my entire room is full of these little faggots.

Some people suggest to sprinkle the pots with tobacco water but i'm not sure if that can harm my plants.

I tried putting a glass of vinegar and soap and they indeed start diving (and dying) in it, but not at the rate they reproduce.

Any ideas are much appreciated.

You already have an abundance of adults so it won't do anything which you should have realized after reproduced even after the success of the soap but go ahead with that.

Ignore and wait for spring so you can put the pots out for some time as early as possible. Or repot everything in sterile soil wich would be idiotic.
>>
>>3243495
They can kill a lot of young sprouts but I wouldnt want to grow weak plants anyway.
