cmon. Let's say it's 1.5 gallons, is that enough for any plants? I can take or leave the shrimp, never had them in a shrimp only tank, so is that too little water?

Guys, several months ago I used the product "No Planaria" (betel nut palm extract in powder form) to nuke a tank with planaria. It was very effective, but also nuked the snails (expected this, only had pest snails there).

How do I make the tank safe for snails again? I've reintroduced some species and noticed that they're fine..except the trumpet snails. Apparently the betel nut shit is still down in the sand, because both of them are now dead 4-5 days after getting tossed in.

Dude, female pandas are only in heat 3 days mer year, it wouldn't be an issue for a social animal but they are solitary. If a male panda doesn't get a whiff and cross the miles necessaryz to get through the territory of the female panda in time then it's over for this year.
Pandas are a retarded specie.

No chicken thread?

Well I suppose it's a little early, but I have come into possession of a piece of property where I can own chickens. I have no idea where to start.

Everything from the coop to the fenced in yard would have to be built from scratch. Anyone know of good resources to get started?

Dietary qestion. What do you feed your birds? Corn and various grains seem to be the norm. Also what food supplements?
>>
>>3593638
One of the posters here a thread or two back recommended fermenting the grain (wheat) I feed my chooks - I've been doing it for a few weeks now and so far, so good. Definitely makes the feed go further and a previously lacklustre old hen has perked up again. Oyster shell grit I sprinkle around every now and then, and there is a sliced leaf of aloe vera in their drinking water. Otherwise mine are free range.
>>
>>3593719
Mine are mostly free range as well. Haven't heard aloavera in water yet. Benefits? Is fermented grain better for digestion or does the process release more nutrients? This thread is the first time I heard of this.

He already peed on the mat in the little bit he was asleep earlier. Laying in it and everything. only been like 45 minutes since he was last out too. IDK WHAT to do about potty training him. Sometimes he gives me good warning, other times he just goes. I'm starting to feel like I'm failing him.
>>
>>3593649
Am I not letting him out enough? I am trying to do so at least every 2 hours, maybe I need to do it more after he drinks or eats? Like have a routine PLUS take him out a bit after he eats or drinks?

It's not a fucking cat. It's a marsupial.
European colonists in new lands just named things after animals and plants they knew from other places. That's why Australian fauna has loads of dumb common names like "Tasmanian tiger" "marsupial lion" "marsupial mouse" "kangaroo rat" and so on.

If you are that concerned for babied then you should be concerned that people are touching babies without disinfecting their hands and wearing masks since babies are more at risk of getting sick from people than from animals.

Sweet, my state's relevant to /an/ again. Also, wut.
>Fourth state confirms mink farm coronavirus outbreaks as U.S. looks to avoid Denmark's disaster

>Last Friday, while the Danish government was reeling from yet another coronavirus-related mink scandal - this time the corpses of so-called "zombiemink" surfacing because of improper burial after culling - a more modest but still troubling report was unfolding nearly 5,000 miles away in the United States: Oregon had become the fourth state to confirm a coronavirus outbreak on a domestic mink farm.

>At least 10 minks and an undisclosed number of human farmworkers tested positive for the coronavirus, the U.S. Agriculture Department confirmed Friday. The infected animals were ordered isolated, sparing the American minks from the grim fate of their European counterparts: Danish minks were culled en masse weeks earlier after scientists discovered they carried a mutated strain of the virus that if spread back to humans could reduce the efficacy of a potential vaccine.

>So far, no mutation has been detected in U.S. minks and health and agricultural experts agree the risk of humans contracting the virus from minks is low - two factors that buoy the hopes of American mink farmers who are watching the pandemic devastate some of the world's largest mink producers abroad.

thanks, noted. it was messy but i cut it one square, just to separate the glass from the substrate. Is 3.5 inches all around deep enough? or should it be much deeper?

I mixed cocofiber, organic topsoil, and play sand, they're pretty moist but it's going to sit for 3 weeks before i get the snake.
