An odd place to ask...but, I need to rehome my green cheeked conure pretty quickly- just wondering if anybody is interested. I'm selling him for half the retail price. Hes awesome, just got my own reasons : | Easy beginner parrot, tons of personality, but still comes with annoying parrot quirks! Message me?

Also peered into the big tank today and saw my female betta with her head above water. I have hanging planters at the water line and she was just poking the head out laying it on the hanger edge. Completely freaked me out thinking she was dead, tapped on the glass and she went right back in. What are you doing betta >: (

as long as he springs to life and fins arent clenched for extended periods of time, its just how some bettas are. i'm starting grow fond of more aggressive things in my tank. dunno if its just me getting bored of shrimp. to me they seem like perpetual gardeners always mowing your lawn... ALWAYS mowing your lawn... always mowing YOUR LAWN.... lol

occassionally ill drop food just to get a good shrimp ball/brawl happening but they go back to gardening afterwards. i wish they had another hobby...

V. good luck on rehoming your conure. they are awesome birds. I rescued a newborn cockatiel back in 1998 in the dead of winter. it was a basement breeder who got evicted and ended up posting "last day for birds" on yahoo classifieds. i dunno why i clicked that ad since i wasnt looking for birds and had no interest but i did anyway. i went to jamaica avenue on a snowy december night to get this guy in a shoe box with a baggie of seed and no feathers on his head. Today he's now living with my uncle in New Jersey whistling london bridges falling down, the only song i managed to teach him. Spunky guys that are super affectionate. He just wasnt too fond of my guinea pigs at the time, but thats a tale for another day...

i love the ghosties sonic path gave me. they can smell food from miles away and scurry around frantically looking for it they also use my betta as a stepping stone when swimming around the tank

I would love a conure but I've been turned off birds by my anti social budgies... They are just a loud chore and I am strongly considering re-?homing them to someone who just wants eye candy (they are both very pretty). They bite, fly away and only approach (sort of) for food. Plus my whole family is terrible with birds! (3 escapes, 2 cats) forget to feed when I'm away, etc.

There's a big difference between hand raised and wild caught. Mind would walk around my computer desk when I used to play starcraft... If you trim their flight feathers, they are less likely to take off and crash into stuff. You can also train them to bathe and do tricks. Birds are in many ways more interesting than shrimp.

I'm tired of crying over pets that die after 2-3 years. :<

Kitty, lemme know if you really are, i can tell you more bout him. Youd be a good owner, and i really dont want to resort to CL. They can live 40+ years. but umm...hes still a responsiblity. I feed him expensive pellets, freshly prepared vegfruits, sometimes i cook my own beangrain mix which is a complete diet as well.
Hes a gcc which are known for being cute douchebags, and he can indeed be a douchebag. Lol, he is cuddly though, i love picking him up, petting him, zooming around with him like an airplane.

Sounds like a wonderful candidate for drain and bleach.
