I have a 75 gal with a strange combo including an African Dwarf frog, 1 baby musk turtle(there were 2 but one got sick and unfortunately I couldn't help), 2 Senegal Bichirs, several emerald corydoras, and a bunch of eastern and western mosquitofish.

Not sure if you were paying attention but I said that a single baby turtle died because it got sick.
>>
(((got sick)))
yeah m8 I'm sure the quality of your husbandry had nothing to do with it
completely random illness, vet even diagnosed it as Owner Not Responsiblitis
>>
Well considering everything else in the tank is quite healthy and is showing no problems and is eating and swimming properly, it was probably sick when I bought it.
>>
>>2575344
Won't the bichirs eat everything else?
>>
>>2575379
That is a good question, glad you used common sense unlike that other guy. The answer is yes, they will, however I have them in here temporarily while they are babies and far to small to hurt anything. Under normal circumstances, yes the bichirs would kill and devour everything.

Cat that I've had since I was a kid passed away this morning. At first I was sad but I did my best to accept it, then dad came home with a helium balloon to write on. When he let it go... fuck it really hit me hard. It feels like I just lost a best friend.

I'm so sorry anon. I've been there recently. Don't downplay those feels, that cat was more meaningful than many people in your life. At least it was one of the top 1% happiest animals ever.

>>2575336
This vet is sketching me out. Her inability to determine what's wrong with my cat after 3 visits has made me disillusioned with her. She forgets what she has and hasn't done and does not communicate carefully and clearly. First it was pneumonia, then asthma and pneumonia, then maybe a diaphragm hernia, now "Well her heart and stomach lining look a little strange..." After a 3rd x-ray, she stated wanting an EKG and forgot she never did blood work. Now she wants both, but my cat is starting to recover and seems better.

I'm going to wait til tomorrow and bring her to a better vet if I'm still worried. She's got clear eyes, can purr again, and isn't gasping anymore. Right now she is breathing silently for the first time in days.

I met a pitbull mastiff mix the other day and he was a big boi. Really nice dog he was. His owner was a homeless man. What do you think about pitbull mastiff mixes /an/ ? I kinda want one now. He kinda looks like pic related but a bit bigger.

>I had to take him to the vet and have him get shots to get rid of some kind of skin mite he had.
What kind of shot was it? Did it clear up?
My vet has been treating my little guy for fungus but it's not working and I'm thinking it's mites dispite the skin scraping not showing anything.

I'm not sure. Rush would scratch a certain spot until it bled, like he had a bloody sore on his side from scrstching. I took him to the vet and they gave him a shot and then they gave me two little bottles of medicine I had to feed him orally, all I remember was one was grape flavored and he loved it. The first treatment didn't take, so I took him back to the vet in two weeks and they gave him another shot and more medicine and then he got better.

I've seen 3 in my house now. Should I just leave them be, or will they bite?

A spider from the Lycosidae family. They're mostly harmless. Leave them be.

Think you're confused on the intention of my green text anon, it obviously didn't bleed out if it had time to heal, but you're right in that it almost certainly effected its ability to balance and likely was a cause to it's eventual death, much like when modern Predators develop injuries that hinder their ability hunt

but the anon I was replying to was the one who disputed

I got this fish at the sea along with some others

The others adapted well and are eating normally

But this one isn't eating at all
I'm wondering if he'll survive

Do you guys know what specie is this?

Don't worry OP, if he died, you can eat him. Don't listen to the cucks in the thread.

This is why you don't ask the internetz XDdd's help. Have fun getting shat on for not having a degree in Marine Science and 736373628 years of experience in marine fishkeeping. These gate-keeping cucks aren't going to help you.

it's not illegal in most countries. Even places where it is illegal you just need a fishing license to make it legal.

Hypothetically, if some animals had civilizations, how would they differ from that of humans? How would they differ between species? How would their layout look and how would the communities differ from our own?
