Just wondering what other pets people have in addition to our cats. My husband and I have a saltwater aquarium with 4 fish, some crabs and snails and some corals. It is a lot more work than a cat, I can tell you that. Very beautiful and a lot of fun though.
:D

Living with me are my two dogs and cockatiel as well as two fish tanks filled with colorful fish. I've always wanted a saltwater aquarium. It must be beautiful.

Thats all. :p Yeah I love clown fish! :) and those cool saltwater fish that look like relative to betta's they are like split pink and purple and really cool. Anyway, have a good day!

I have two Siamese cats and a collie. Some years ago I had 4 cats (rescues), three collies, collie pups once or twice a year, 2 parakeets, 2 finches, and 12 aquariums! I used to raise Angel fish, gouramis, and all kinds of live bearers. Aquariums are great, but I can't stand the thought of babies or eggs being eaten, so I kept buying more tanks. Loads of work!

I often wanted a salt water tank because of clown fish! And the colors are amazing in a salt water tank. My largest tank was 55 gallons. I had some rather unusual fish, Tin foil barbs that shined like foil and had orange fins and grew to be very long, and and Cobalt Blue Rift Lake Cichlids, which were mouth brooders. There were loads of others, too.

For fresh water tanks, an amusing little fish is a bumblebee gobi, which looks just like a bumble bee, and sits on bottom ornaments! The only problem is that it is a fin nipper, especially the fins of fancy guppies!

I've always wanted a saltwater tank too.

I think when I have a more stationary home (ei not an apartment) I'm going to look into getting a big tank.

So it's just me and my betas right now.

Except from the cats we have a waterfrog. I think it´s called african clawfrog in english but I´m not sure. We´re planning to buy a dog. Probably a bullmastiff.

We're hoping to get an Asian Leopard Cat within the year. We are planning to move this year and then we will buy one after we get our license and stuff. Once we have a bigger yard I would like to get a yellow labrador or a dog in that category.

Aside from the cats I have two dogs, a black lab and a Rottweiler/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. We also have a Koi pond in the back yard with a bunch of Koi, some baby Goldfish and a few frogs. :)

Aside from my two cats I have a dog (doberman husky cross) and a young mocha corn snake (she's kind of pinky purplish) Gizmo thinks she's food and Orion is scared of her..

Here's a picture of our other dog, Isaac. He's a bit furry because it's winter and we let his hair grow a little longer the usual that time of year.

I have 4 outside BIG dogs, two inside dogs, and I once had a squirrel, 2 baby cardinals the cat brought in, and I've tried fish, but it just doesn't work with my cats! :shock:

Cyprian, do you have a picture of her? I'd love to see it. We used to have two Burmese pythons, two Ball pythons and an African Sand Boa. Gorgeous reptiles but what a lot of work!
Have discovered that she isn't mocha (tho the colouring is right) she's a motley pastel, (mocha is so much easier to say.. sigh)


isn't she cute :D
