    I need your help and input!

    Just because you do not have a degree does not mean you cannot get one or find some help in doing a proper research paper to submit to a scientific journal. It may be more difficult but you can get published without having a PHD behind your name. You do not have to be a scientist to learn how to...

    I need your help and input!

    If you do not submit for scientific peer review, then it is not a science paper. Just someone posting on the Internet.

    Adding extra heating safely...

    I was thinking of the same issue. I may need additional heating for my slings when I order and was thinking of something like this with heat cables.

    Sling to adult, how many make it?

    I was deep into the African Cichlid hobby. Did my research there too before starting and had great success. I had MTS (Multi Tank Syndrome) then and will probably do the same with T's and enclosures. As for feeders, considering what I have local I was considering on starting my own flightless...

    I have no T's.

    This is what draws me to husbandry of all types. I like to get to know my critters and their habits and personalities. Who knew fish have personalities until you get to know one. I have always had a natural anility to learning and reading animals 'body language'. This is what draws me to the T...

    I have no T's.

    After dumping thousands of dollars in the aquarium hobby and African cichlids, I am prepared that I may end up with dozens of T's. My intent in the fish hobby was to eventually breed, I suspect the same will happen with this hobby. Nature and critters have always been part of my life.
