I once had a water dragon but feeding frozen rodents is way better than bugs. I sold my leopard gecko about 6 months ago for this reason. Also if you think the rainbow bias markings are stunning look at one in person. The color when you get the iridescent on it is unbelievable. They require such high humidity a fish room would be perfect. Mine almost always have perfect sheds in my room.

Don't tell them, but I was going to feed the dragon fish!
They need a space to swim and a, is it viv or pal, it would need, they are known to hunt in rivers, perfect!

You can feed fish, but it's not good full time. And it makes horrible smelling poop. Some people feed garter snakes minnows and a free days later they reek!!!

I was thinking runt disposal, my bichirs used to do all the work for me. I don't breed that often anymore, time, money, other hobbies and life generally get in the way now. When I started keeping fish that's all I did for years then I got back into some old hobbies and some new, mainly model making and photography, I'd preferred to have completed my camera kit but the choice was no fish and camera or fish and current equipment.
Without getting ethical, either way, stuff needs killing if you breed fish, let the hunters hunt. That's why I loved my puffer so much, except for being charming and lovely he was a cold hard mini killer, probably why I like the lion fish so much.

I bred platies as an exclusive feeder fish for my piscivores, sometimes they were fed whitebait. I am frustrated that auto spell has no fish terminology in its data bank. I like the gar fish, like crocs at the business end. I presume the Hujeta is a small sp. despite having a room that causes some folk jealousy it isn't big enough. If you decide to build one build it bigger, much bigger, you will meet someone that inspires you to need more space! Cheers CC, it has been a pleasure so far, I will call on you when/if snake time arrives, or any rep for that matter.

Stills 2

So they are still a bit twitchy. Less response to sinking dry carnivore food, they used to Hoover this up! Fish appear to look healthier. I am happy.
