Made my first arraignment of plants. Just a mix of succulents and cacti from Home Depot. Bretty good, or did I fuck up? Specifically, is it too over crowded? I may be wrong, but I heard you can plant a lot in a small area.

Anyway, post your planters.

looks fine

there's a pervasive pink coloring on the plants which is freaking me out tho

>>2068763

It's from the fake flowers every cactus at Home Depot has glued on top. I took them off, but there's still some coloration left.

I have no idea why they do that. Literally every cactus at these shitty fake flowers glued to the top.

I've emailed them about it, they say they sell better that way.

I'd be a big fan of putting those colored fake flowers on some cholla and selling that to whoever likes that crap. (Or if there's a better cactus at fucking your shit up, that'd be good too.)

So it looks like some asshole poisoned the cat that lives in my store. She looked groggy, was drooling a lot, and there was some blood on her tongue.

I just left her at the vet, any other pro-tips?

My chinchilla is clearly not a domesticated animal. How can I set him free when he seeks to escape his cage (no matter how large) but he would doubtlessly die in the harsh Utahn climate? I mean, shit, is there like a chinchilla refuge?

You can't release non domestic animals like that in the first place.

Also, chinchillas are legitimate domestic animals. If he's freaking out in the cage constantly, you're keeping him wrong somehow.
>>
>>2076755
They need a lot of floor time (time outside of their cage, romping around in a chinchilla proof room or section off area) and they are extremely social animals and should have a chinchilla friend, or you could spend a ton of time with him and be his friend. They are not meant to stay in a cage 24/7
>>
>>2076757
It's not that. It's that I can first instinct is to flee. He hasn't been abused and he lives in a fucking mansion as far as cages go. I don't expect him to be other than what he is but he always seems like he'd run as far away as possible if he could.

Why doesn't my housemates greyhound close his eyes or seem to enjoy having his ears scratched? Whenever he walks up to me for a pat he just keeps the same expression on his face.

Greyhounds are just very low-key doggos - they don't do the bouncing-around-with-exuberant-displays-of-affection things that other breeds do so much, they don't bark much and are pretty chill dogbros happy to lie-around most of the day. Suits some people, needier personalities should seek out clingier breeds.
>>
>>2075179
Depends on the greyhounds, I've met a bunch that were like regular dogs. Those that were retired from racing though, a lot of them were basically robots. Kinda like retired hunting dogs.
Wonder what are police dogs like when they stop working.

My dog does that. She will get excited, paw at me to pet her and roll over for belly rubs but when you pet her, she's so blank and emotionless.

The clam I was trying to save was a tridacna clam. Specifically a giant gigas clam. Don't confuse them with those burrowing labeled as "filter" clams that your think of. These guys need lots of strong lighting (no such thing as too much) and have the same requirements as SPS corals.

I only have one (a crocoe) in my tank so far (behind the corals if you look hard enough) Been with me since the begining the unmovable bastard he is. He literally squirted me more then twice during moves.

I'll always wonder, When i was younger two cats never liked us but we would pick them up anyway and pat them.

Just a cat.

Most cats aren't purebred nor are they any noticeable mix of pure breeds.

There's only about 3 different main body types in domestic cat breeds, not counting cat size, and then just lots of different colours. The body types aren't as distinguishable as dog body types, either.
