Reality check for those of you keeping fish in unheated tanks, tanks, bowls, or whatever type of container you choose to use.
This is the temperature reading I got today when I woke up at 7:00 realising that Zo’s (male Betta) heater broke! The current time is 7:58 and the temp 67*F at room temp! Morning room temperature!
Who knows how long Zo’s heater has been out! Because I usually just check the day temp and it is usually around 75*F. No wonder my boy seemed a bit lethargic recently!
When temperature fluctuations occur on a daily basis it really stresses your fish out, which weakens the immune system and make the fish susceptible to illness! Please I urge you all to invest in two things! A heater and a thermometer at the very least!

The temp is actually closer to 73-74F. Each of the little lines is two degrees. 

Ah oops thanks for that I read it wrong! Corrections Zo’s tank is in the 70’s but still a bit too low. I prefer 80*F but it is recommended that bettas be kept 75*F-82*F

At least these thermometers are better than the crappy little stick-on ones. It’s so important to check the temps and I do it every time I walk past my tanks, especially the betta tank in the kitchen. Smaller tanks lose heat much faster than larger tanks which can hurt our little fishy friends.

Anonymous asked: Not to mention, the majority of the people who own dogs are uneducated not only about dogs in general, but whatever breed they have. So many people think that every dog breed is the same when they're not. Each were bred for specific things and have specific traits. They don't take care of/train their dogs properly, usually buy from a shady breeder or a petstore, etc. It's ridiculous how uneducated many dog owners are.

fuckyeahballpythons:

Have you ever tried bringing up genetic aggression to the pibble community? If anyone ever wants a firsthand experience of how misinformed, uneducated, and unwilling to look at facts a lot of dog owners are at the extreme end, the pibble community does it the absolute best.

Not to mention, there are some things about corgi temperaments that really wish more people would be willing to highlight. Because I love my corgi and I still think they’re a great breed but it would have been nice if more people were willing to talk about the nippiness as an actual issue rather than some “cute personality trait~”.

My Catahoula is always going to need to be worked with around strangers because it’s his breed trait to be defensive and wary around them. And with his prey drive, I doubt he’ll be able to live with kittens or possibly even cats in general.

Not to say my dog is mean or unsocialized but it goes back to the nature vs. nurture debate. If hundreds of generations of Catahoulas were bred to protect property and hunt then a few months, or even years, of training won’t be enough to strip him of those instincts.

brown—hound:

Thoughts? Keep? Sell? Trash?

Ancient jumping (?) Saddle. Probably about 35 years old. Made in Argentina but I haven’t researched to know what brand. A good bit of cosmetic damage, but honestly very well put together and isn’t falling apart or delicate in any fashion. Nothing seems loose or about to fall off.
Last image is the first time I cleaned and oiled it… Left side clean, right side untouched… It was quite abused :(

I don’t know much about English saddles, so off I go to learn :)

I did some research cause I’m bored and it looks like the brand is called Coracero.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Coracero-Argentina-English-Saddle-Has-Stirrups-/171425630482?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27e9c38912 This saddle is newer but the image of the man on the horse is the same.

There’s a lot of people selling ‘argentina saddle 1084’ and apparently they were popular in the 70’s and 80’s.

bettablogging:

The amount of people who comment on a well-thought out, well-researched and sourced piece of care advice for an animal saying they did the exact thing it says not to do and they “seemed fine” will never cease to amaze me.

They’re probably the same people who drive under the influence without their seatbelts because their friend did it once and got home safely.

Please share this with the fish community.  Putting fish bowls in teddy bears is outrageous, and this petition really needs more than the 4,000 signatures it’s asking for to get the point across.

Goodbetterbetta- Okay!

Hey. Hey followers. Sign a petition. It’s for the fish.

We sell these at work and thankfully no one I’ve seen has bought one yet. If a customer did want one I think my head would explode.
