    Any good info on keeping a Octopus

    There are a lot of disadvantages when it comes to keeping octopi. The first being their longevity (or lack of). Many species will not live over a year. I think average lifespan is from one and a half to two years. They can not safely have any other tankmates. They are also Extremely...

    can someone help

    Saltwater Marauder, Yikes, i'm not sure if you got the idea that i was going to keep a porcupine (or any other puffer for that matter) in with my dogface. But, no, the dogface is going to stay the single resident of his 260g. While i do have room to add some other fish, i am not going to...

    Honestly, i don't know too much about the temperment of the stars and stripes puffer, but the dogface can be rather territorial. Considering that both puffers are in the same genus (Arothron) i would assume that they both will exhibit somewhat similar demeanors. Keeping these two together...

    Pregnant Pork

    I've always believed that the best way to have success in a controled aquarium environment is to understand the animal's behaviors in the wild. I am a Zoology student with a concentration in marine biology at Michigan State University, and have access to seemingly infinite numbers of...
