They sit in the tank until I fish them back out . I did recently change her tank, but she had stopped eating pellets just before this. A...

    Previously wrote a thread about selling him, decided not to do that and also give him a little bit of a tank revamp. He's just under three inches, in a tank 2x1x1ft with about 4inches of water in. He has a small asking area, a climbing rock/cave, a large fake plant, a water heater and a small...

    Hi Guys, Just wanted to say thanks for the advice you all gave me. Here's a picture of Alfred. All going well so far though he seems to be hiding and doesn't come out even for food. I watch him for a little bit and when the food starts to sink that seems to be when he goes for it. So I...

    Basically the male has started sexually harassing the female and they need seperating and I can't afford seperate tanks at the moment. I do not mind which sex you have, but the female has a small bite wound on her tail. This hasn't affected her behaviour or feeding. Overall the male is a bit...

    Hi, I'm thinking about getting a Stinkpot, but I'm concerned about the smell they produce when they feel threatened... On a scale of 1-10, how bad is the smell? And do they do this often? Thanks.
