    That is one cute Crested Gecko! How old is he, how long have you had him, etc? Great page-king by the way.

    Clownfish are the best Saltwater fish IMO, but when you do plan to get them to breed make sure you remove the other males or things can get complicated. Also, a few questions: do you have anemone in there with them? How many Clownfish do you own? Whats the male/female count?
    Only two clowns. Clownfish populations only allow for one mated pair at a time, and they're paired up and mature. They had and anemone but it's state of health was ever declining after it found itself stuck in the powerhead when it was trying to find the best place to stay. It just kept getting smaller and smaller and finally stopped accepting food and disappeared into the rockwork one night. I hear it's not a rare thing for anemones to find themselves stuck in powerheads and that it's usually fatal. I'm actually surprised he made it that long. Oddly enough the Clowns seem to have hosted a near by mushroom coral.

    As far as breeding them goes, It haven't really put a full effort into it as I'm trying to breed Hi-Fin Swords(freshwater) right now and resources are limited. I'm sure if I put them in their own private tank with all the fixings I could get them to breed fairly quickly but that's just not really feasible right now.

    I'm sorry, I am a reptile expert, not a bug expert. I will call the subheading "Bugs" okay?

    Call it exoskeletons or something, and include those massive isopods.

    I have a run of the mill Ball Python, Hypo Amel Corn Snake, A leopard Gecko, and a Bearded Dragon. But I only care for the snakes. My brother rightfully so owns the lizards, so he is the one who cleans the cages and stuff. Will post pics tomorrow. I've posted them before, but they've grown a bit since then, so I guess I will take new ones.

    I was inspired to get a gecko after that "Lizard Chilling on my Plunger" thread.

    Ended up getting an African fat-tailed gecko but it's extremely difficult to maintain IMO. Primarily because I have such horrible bug phobias yet I must feed him live crickets.

    Which shit everywhere. :byodood:

    No, I mean the crickets shit everywhere in their container. They are dying out quickly despite me providing food/essentials.

    And now Henry (yes, I named him Henry) is pissy and trying to bite me. Does it hurt when leopard/African fat tails bite?

    We mainly bought all of them when they were still babies or very, very young, so 99% of their behavior is because of our influence upon them.

    Birds don't necessarily need 'training' like a dog does (ie. heel, sit, lay down), but they need discipline so they know when not to bite, etc.

    They are EXTREMELY smart though. The cockatoo has managed to pick through all the locks on her cage (even combination locks), so we had to go with a key lock. She also is very respectful towards humans. If she's on somebody, but has to poop, she will go to an extreme of a limb (ie. end of the arm) so that way she won't get any on you.

    Crickets are some of the neediest little shits, just buy 40 every time it gets empty to prevent them all dying, happens to me all the time. Do the geckos hurt when they bite? Not by my standards, but I've been bit by fucking Macaws without flinching. If he's trying to bite you, thats not good. I suggest you get gardening gloves then handle him every day, make sure you LET him bite you (with the gloves on), it lets him know it does nothing.

    They are so adorable :]

    Sadly, no.
    Damn it, they told me at the pet store that having a rock pet was so difficult.

    All ammateurs out there, start raising something easier like komodo dragons and then move to rocks, that way, you won't commit all the mistakes I did with rockie.

    The friendliest is definitely the Cockatoo, she almost never bites anyone and is the sweetest thing ever.

    The Blue Headed Pionus is very temperamental and territorial, but when calm is really nice. He smells great too! Doesn't like getting petted very much.

    The Macaw is a very playful one, acts like a dog almost, but gotta be careful with him because he sometimes bites too hard when he's playing.

    The African Grey is bonded solely to my mom. I can get near and kiss her on the beak and pet her sometimes, but with my dad, not a chance.

    The Cockatiel is scared shitless of pretty much everything. He just lulls around the place doing whatever he wants.

    In terms of training, I can't make a judgement call because they aren't like normal dog or cat pets. You can't really gauge how well they've learned something unless it's talking or tricks because they'll still bite you from time to time if you don't know the signals. That being said, some of them don't bite (ie. the Cockatoo) and some of them don't talk (again, the Cockatoo as an example).

    I used to have a white parakeet, but he always freaked the fuck out when I got near him.

    One day, he was very placid (a first) and ended up dying the next day. I only had him for about a month.

    To anyone considering getting a parrot or bird of any kind, find a friend who has one or spend a fair amount of time in a bird store. You probably aren't expecting the noise-factor to be nearly as horrific as it is. Sun-rise is the worst time of the day, bad enough that at times, the only option is to cover the bird's cage with a sheet to simulate night.

    Cleanup sucks, they have a habit of putting their pellets in their water. (So be sure to never buy a feed with any dyes in it if you like your carpet)

    Even admitting as stressful as they are to own, I can say they are among the most rewarding pets I've ever owned. Amy enjoys peeling grapes, as does Heidi. It's strange, they peel the entire grape, only eat the inside. I've never given either of them peanut butter, but I might have to if they enjoy it. Brazil nuts are probably Amy's favorite, Heidi has those things called 'nutriberries'. She's learned to ask for them by saying "Berry?"
