Small Pet Respect- These are not homes!

kaijutegu:

If you have a small pet, please keep in mind that this,

this,

this,

and ESPECIALLY this

are prisons, not homes. Small pets deserve the best type of home for them- be sure when you’re picking out a small pet, you get an appropriate home! What’s good for one might be terrible for another. 

Your gecko, for instance, will love this.

Your rat will not, no matter what the pet store is keeping them in. Be sure to pick the housing that’s right for your pet!

HOW TO NOT KILL YOUR HERMIT CRAB
1. The habitat- The entire Kritter Keeper is a horrible. It does not hold the needed 80% humidity (which is needed by the hermit crab to breathe through its modified gills) and 80 F temperature. Gauges are needed to monitor these conditions. Plus, that space is WAY too small. A 10 gallon tank AT LEAST is needed. A crab kept like this will slowly suffocate.
2. Substrate-  A minimum of 6 inches of moist, sandcastle-consistency substrate is needed for the hermit crab to dig down to molt. Gravel, colored sand, calci sand, etc are NOT suitable substrate. Unbleached playground sand, ecocearth, or a mixture of both is what is needed.  When a crab digs down NEVER dig him up. If a crab cannot properly molt, it will result in death.
3. Water- Where is the water? A hermit crabs needs declorinated fresh and saltwater pools. They do not ‘drink from a sponge’. Salt water needs to be made from marine grade salt such as Instant Ocean.
4. Food- Commercial food pellets are filled with chemicals that are unsafe for crabs. Hermit crabs can eat whole, pesticide-free foods. Unseasoned meats, fresh fruits and veggies, unseasoned cooked eggs, cuttlebone, etc are all examples of foods a hermit crab needs. Plus they like variety- not the same thing everyday.
5.Shells- Painted shells are TOXIC.The paint can chip off and the crab may eat it which can result in fatality. At least 3 natural shells per crab should be offered. Also, knowing which type of shells the species of crab you have helps.
6. Pesticides- NEVER spray any kind of bug spray, air freshener, or chemicals  of any kinda near your crabs. If it harms bugs it will also harm your crabs. 
7.Friends- Don’t buy for one. Hermit crabs are social creatures. Keeping them in solitude can stress them out.

You can also take photos of your precious Pokémon. When the camera icon is displayed, you can take a picture of your favorite moment during a contest. If you talk to the young man near the reception desk who says it’s his job to prepare the Contest Hall, he can even set it up so you can take pictures of your Pokémon, capturing the world around you in the background! Try to take the ultimate shot with your Pokémon!

Anonymous asked:

Since goldfish are intermediate, what would be a good beginner fish?

Most species of SMALL community tropical fish with a 10g setup.

Fish like guppies, platies, danios, etc. are great because they are hardy and easy to care for, plus they come in a variety of colors!

Another option would be a betta in a 2.5+ gallon setup by itself.

By setup for both of these types of fish I mean appropriate substrate, a heater and a filter.

tsuki-no-miyako asked:

If fish do not belong in fish bowls then where should they live if you buy them? (I had a goldfish when i was younger and we always kept her in a fish bowl and cleaned it regularly)

Goldfish should be kept in a tank with a powerful enough filter, plus APPROPRIATE substrate!  Either bare bottom or sand!

General rule of thumb for goldfish is 2 gallons of water per inch of ADULT -SIZED fish.  So if you have a fancy goldfish, they get about 8 inches large, meaning 16 gallons per fancy goldfish.

Comet goldfish (or “feeder” goldifsh— you know, the kind you win at carnivals?) get anywhere between 18-20 inches long, meaning about 36-40 gallons for a comet to live happily.  ( i prefer to leave comets for ponds as they THRIVE in pond space!  So much room for them to be happy and swim free!  My grandmother has 4-5 comets that she’s had for over 15 years and they’re all about 20 inches long.  They have babies almost every spring and she places the babies in a separate pond)

And the myth about goldfish only growing to the size of the container it’s kept in?  Just that: a myth.  Goldfish will end up with physical deformities and possibly die of organ failure because of the conditions they are left in.

Plus, what would YOU rather live in?  A small studio apartment where everything is in the same room INCLUDING the toilet/sink/shower, or a space where you could stretch out a bit, maybe have a roommate you get along with house with you with plenty of room so you don’t feel trapped in your own living space?

It’s the same as asking whether you think a living creature would enjoy something like this:

Or something like this:

These fish can live between 25-40 years with optimal conditions!

Most fish who are thrown in bowls don’t live past a year or two maximum— bowls do not provide enough oxygen or clean water for any fish to thrive in it.  The shape of the bowl itself isn’t even conducive to producing oxygen, since the surface area of the exposed water is so much less than the diameter of the bowl.

Not only that, but for a goldfish, the water in a 1 gallon bowl will hit toxic levels of ammonia from its own waste within 12 hours.  That means to have the SAFE levels of ammonia you would need to change the water out at least 4 times daily for a 1.5-inch goldfish.

Goldfish are NOT beginner fish.  GOLDFISH ARE NOT BEGINNER FISH!!  I would label them as intermediate because of the amount of maintenance required to have one live its full life span!

And for any of you who read this and say “Why is this so important??  It’s just a fish!”, you can easily ask the same question of any animal.  ”Why is this so important?? It’s just a dog!”.  ”Why is this so important?? It’s just a horse!”.  

No matter the animal, it should still be treated with respect.

If you ignore its needs on purpose, not out of ignorance or miseducation, that is animal abuse.  Never buy an animal on a whim or just because it’s cute or because you want it to fill a space in your house for decoration.  ALWAYS DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE PURCHASING AN ANIMAL.  And cross-reference your sources!  Never just rely on one person’s word.

Tl;dr or if you’re still curious as to why bowls are bad for fish, I suggest these links for more information:

store bought bird cages are too small for any bird larger than a finch.
chinchillas and rabbits live from 8 to 14 years. 
Some reptiles will only eat live feed. Are you prepared for that?

If you need proof that bettas should have at least 2.5 gallons, heated and filtered, here it is. The first picture is my betta, Tamaki, which I rushed into buying and had no clue how to take care of him. Thankfully, someone with knowledge on bettas messaged me and pointed me in the right direction. Thus…. the second is Tamaki only ONE MONTH later. He’s such a zippy, energetic fish compared to how he was in the bowl. His colors have also developed like crazy- he’s much more vibrant and his fins are beginning to turn red/blue, and the red spot on his head has spread, as well. 

 If you have your betta in a bowl, please consider getting a tank or rehoming him to someone who will. Your fish will be infinitely happier and healthier, giving you more time to enjoy having such a cool pet.

Betta Myths Debunked

I’ve recently rehabilitated a betta who had been kept in a one gallon bowl for three years. He was gray, with crazy short fins, skinny, and very lethargic. He improved immensely in just two weeks! A month later his fins are easily three times as long and his color is amazing, plus he zips all over his tank!!
