All my levels are fine and his gills aren't curled at all, they stick backwards mostly.
I read that flowing water (from filters) stresses them out and causes their gills to curl forward. (axolotl.org forum)
IME, pushing books onto kids isn't really successful, but allowing them to find titles that they connect with and are interested in will have them immersed in hours.
My 11 year old loves Rick Riordan's series, Harry Potter, Greek Mythology, and he did read Treasure Island and enjoy it.
Horns was written by Joe Hill, Stephen King's other son, along with some other horror novels.
I thought the ending was a little rushed as well, and would have liked more of a background on Eve and the moth situation.
Yeah the goldfish are permanent residents and have their own tank in the kid's room.
The lotl is in a temporary tank in our living room till he goes home.
I definitely will wait for the move. It's a 14-16 hour drive and not one I'd want to attempt with a lot of fish. Moving the crab tank is...
1. I have green hair.

We have so. many. Lego. My son is almost 12 and since he was 4 that was one of the very few toys he ever had any interest in playing with.
We've got Star Wars, The Hobbit, several Marvel sets, Ninjago, TMNT, Batman, The Lone Ranger, Random City sets, Chima, Jurassic World, Hero Factory, The...
I have an API liquid kit. I am currently caring for a friend's axolotl and my son has 2 goldfish that were rescued from a festival about 3-4 years ago.
I am moving to Arizona and live in Texas currently.
Feral and outdoor cats are at a much greater risk of illnesses and infections, such as abscesses from fighting other feral or stray cats. They're at risk of being killed by dogs or coyotes depending on where you live, even owls will take cats.
They are also harmful to bird and other small wild...
What are some all around good options for a beginner starting out with a 40-55 gallon freshwater tank?
I'd like a community sort of tank that doesn't need a heater. The room temperature of tank water in my current home has been 73-76° before but in smaller tanks.
I've had a 20gallon salt...
This is my spoiled baby Totoro (tortie). Her mama (Jayne) (lighter orange tabby) was a feral cat that came to live with us during a rare ice storm.
Tater Tot (my son's ESA) (orange tabby) came into our apartment at about 6 months old one November and never left. I found out that another family...
I love our lady of Sunnydale, ok? LOL I was in jr. high-high school when Buffy premiered and my sister and I would watch it every week, and then when Angel started-that too. When I was pregnant with my son I'd watch the reruns at 5-6AM every weekday.
I have an Aries symbol on the back of my neck, an hourglass with batwings on my shin, a zombie pinup on my calf, a star on one wrist, a butterfly/skull on one arm, and a fish on the other. I also have runes on 4 fingers and green and yellow hornets on my chest.
I have an appointment booked in...
No, he couldn't just "get his own exterminator". He is legally blind, lives off of SSDI, and has Section 8 housing. He can't afford to feed himself half the time, much less pay out of pocket for an exterminator. He ended up having to borrow the money from an acquaintance, which took...
If you do not indicate the presence or signs of bedbugs during your initial walk through when you sign your lease, in Texas, you can (and will) be charged for bedbug treatment. This is in my lease.
My father was charged over $800 for bedbug treatment at a property in Dallas.
If you are renting, look over your lease thoroughly. We had to sign a "bedbug addendum" that stated the tenants are responsible for reporting and also liable for treatment costs.
I'm sorry you're in this situation; we've battled bedbugs before and they're the worst.
I think that if you can go to a school that is in a different town, whether it's a different area of Texas or out of state, you should go for it. The life experiences and growth would do a lot of good for you at your age.
I actually cooked and managed small kitchens professionally for a bit about a decade ago. I did an externship for culinary school at The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas.
Now I make a lot of salads at home
When I was around 15 or so we would watch my best friend's brothers bootleg VHS tapes of Ghost in the Shell and Princess Mononoke.
One of my son and I's favorites since he was smol is Ponyo.
He likes My Hero Academia now and Death Note.
I always liked the scarier ones like Witch Hunter...
Hi! New to Fishlore but not to similar webforums.
I've never really been an aquarist, but am currently babysitting an axolotl, and my son has 2 common goldfish that were rescued at a festival about 4 years ago this fall.
We've had a bit more experience with herps and hermit crabs, both...
