setting up the new crabitat was a very fun experience. It took less than two hours and was fairly simple. The results were great!

allyduffin: Im starting a new freshwater tank do platties, mollys and guppies go together?
09.02.2017
VigiltheWiggle: They're all tropical community and they do well as long as you have a few of each, so dont put 10 guppies and one molly together :P
09.02.2017
VigiltheWiggle: I would at least get 3 of each. One male, two females. SDome people know how to sex them at the pet stores, but if they dont tell them that males have the pointy anal fin and females have a fan like anal fin. Also keep in mind that they are all live bearers so you might see some fry in your tank once they get cozy.
09.02.2017
VigiltheWiggle: If you want to keep the fry, provide lots of plant coverage for them to hide or they'll unfortunately be eaten. Some pet stores will also take the fry if you dont want them and dont want the bigger fish to eat them.

NorwegianForestCat: Does anyone have any useful tips on how to keep outside pets cool in hot weather?
10.02.2017
turtlezblog: Ice in there water bowls, and maybe a fan.
11.02.2017
NorwegianForestCat: Okay, that sounds like a good idea - thanks
11.02.2017
SparrowHunter: That turtlezblog said and if they like water, you can either put out pools they can get into or spray them with a hose.
12.02.2017
Nhycohye: the ice water and the fan might give them a cold
12.02.2017
Nhycohye: 😏😏😏

SparrowHunter: Not usually in the summer. WE do it for our cats.
12.02.2017
SparrowHunter: Sorry typing with one hand while eating.
12.02.2017
VigiltheWiggle: Be careful not to point the fan directly at them though just put it in the same room because depending on the animal, it can dry them out
12.02.2017
VigiltheWiggle: Also have you tried insulating your house? My house is basically a pet cave with bubblewrap on the inside of the windows and tinfoil on the outside to reflect the sun. I don't know if your weather is as extreme, but where i live it gets to 120F easy.
12.02.2017
NorwegianForestCat: I wish I could insulate my house - but not sure if it's possible at the moment (great idea though!) I might just put ice in my pets water bowls & put a fan near them. Also, I was wondering if it would be worth cooling my cat off a bit by placing him in some room temp. water? Or would that be more stress than it's worth?
12.02.2017
Biancaluvspets: That will most likely stress the cat out more then it would help it.

NorwegianForestCat: That's what I was thinking - but thanks for confirming that for me

Isabel: I agree that it will most likely stress out your cat, but once our AC wasn't working in the heat of summer and our cats were panting from heat. They don't really care about water, so they didn't mind us placing them on a towel and slowly pouring a glass of cool water on them and drying them off a bit. I think they might've even enjoyed it. These are just from my experiences though, so it won't work on all cats, obviously.

Kira: mollys are bigger than platys and guppies and they might be more aggressive. it could help to add the guppies & platys to the tank first@ allyduffin

Graci3lacy: Random question... My room is on the second floor of my home. How many gallons can/should I have in my room? Currently I have a 10 gallon with three guppies and am looking into upgrading them to a 20 gallon long.🐠🐠
11d ago
lucienne: I had a 55 gal tank on the second floor and it was fine, spilled several gallons on the floor a few times and it was still fine :)

Kira: if youre worried about your house's frame not being able to support the weight of the water, you should probably ask an architect or someone who can assess the building. itll probably be fine though. a fishtank is heavy but its not much heavier than any piece of furniture you might keep in your room. the water just feels heavy because u have to carry it up :p

Lilithfae: Even a 10g tank can weigh up to 120+ lbs after water is filled and decorations added so, something to take into consideration. There are weight conversion charts online that help.
10d ago
Lilithfae: Tbh I wouldn't be comfortable with anything past 5g on the second floor.
10d ago
Lilithfae: 10g should be fine though. I am just overly cautious.
10d ago
ahab: @Gracilacy the benchmark people generally start to get concerned about is ~100 gallon systems. If your floors can't handle the added weight of a 20g (~220lbs) you've got bigger things to worry about.

Graci3lacy: Thank You!πŸ’™

Lilithfae: I just worry about damaging the floors if the tank fails/cracks. :p Goodness forbid.

Carine_alex: i have a 30 tall in my room upstairs, itsbeen there for a while and everything is fine for me

Lilithfae: anyone have suggestions on tank stands since we are talking about hosting them? One for a 10g? Some just look so incredibly flimsy...or the whole particle board thing...
6d ago
admin: A 10g doesn't require much as far as stands go. I would just find a piece of furniture the tank would fit on and use that. For larger tanks I agree, manufactured stands seem to be a little on the flimsy and under built side of things.

Lilithfae: I am just soooo hesitant, lol. Thank you.

Miss_Sly: A 10 gallon tank will weigh around 111lbs when full, give or take the weight of the substrate and decorations you plan on using. Typically, when I'm looking for a place to put a 10 gallon tank, I just sit on whatever furniture I have in mind, haha! If it can support my weight ( without wobbling ), it will hold a ten gallon tank. I can't use this "rule" for anything larger than a 10 gallon, though.
