List your pets here, plus any you hope to have one day.

I have, at the moment... (I'm editing this to keep it updated-ish)
In the dorm:
-10g, one dwarf puffer, two otocinclus catfish, loads of Malaysian trumpet snails, two olive nerite snails, and some blue ramshorns (planted)
-10g divided, sibling pair wild/splendens betta hybrid, several blue ramshorn snails, a couple assassin snails
-3g, one male betta, one olive nerite snail
-3g, empty
-Empty 5g, spare/quarantine/hospital
At home:
-One dog, a standard poodle
-Two cats

I'd like to have a 100+g Rio Negro biotope with South American puffers, shell-dwelling cichlids, a figure eight puffer, a couple of cats and a big mutt when I have my own home, and... some clownfish. And some penguins too.

Might I just say that ACFs are as ugly as sin and that ADFs are infinitely superior?

edit: i didnt mention that most of his pets were because of me XD unfortunately im allergic (skin mostly) to the rats and chinchilla. they bring out the worst in my allergy induced asthma. the feather dust build up can, too.

"Family" pets are
Three cats: One 12 year old 23 pound male and two six or seven year old girls, both less than half his size

Red eared slider: At least six years old, probably closer to ten, and around eight inches.

"My" pets-
Two tanks of brine shrimps, one a sea monkey container and one in a round fishbowl that holds the equivlilant of two and a half sea monkey tanks. The round bowl is thus far self sustained, and I'm thinking of buying some of the critters from littleaussiepets to keep in it as well.
One half gallon tank with two types of clam shrimp, two types of fairy shrimp, and seed shrimp.
My last Longicoitus passed away last night at 96 days, so I just hatched out some Gonochoric.

"Waiting to be hatched"
Beavertail Shrimp
Thailand fairy shrimp
Two Sea Monkey tanks
One packet of "The Swarm"
Half a packet of Gonochoric Triops longicoitus
Triops Canciformis
Aussie Green Triops

"Pet's I want"
A 55 gal with four fancy goldfish and some ghost shrimp and freshwater clams and oysters
A 10 gal with killifish

(As you can tell water pets are kind of my thing. :wub: )
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby.

I'd go with 20g per fancy goldfish, personally. Clams are VERY hard to keep alive in a tank, and I'm guessing that oysters are the same way. You have to maintain the dissolved food in the water. It can be done, though!

Ah, the place I was planning to buy the oysters and clams from gave me the impression that they were very easy to maintain if I had them with messy inhabitants like goldfish. (Said they'd stir up the sediment and eat the fish waste.) And I was under the impression that 55gal was plenty as long as I had sufficient filtration. I'm trying to see if I can get a cheap tank from someone moving or something anyway, I keep checking local newspapers. I guess I'll just have to wait for a slightly bigger one. :yes:
