Hey /an/, my pitbull killed one of my hens. How do I keep it from doing it again?

Pitbulls are high prey-drive dogs. Keep it away from your chickens, and make sure your coop is secure.

Nah, s'good dog. I stuck his nose in it and whacked him at the same time, though I'm not sure that'll be a permanent reminder.

Yeah I was out and I left the gate to the chicken's area unlocked. Fuck me. Was a good hen too, laid a lotta eggs.

We recently bought 2 male Betta fish this past Friday. One looks very sick. It's fins look shredded (just noticed some pieces of fallen off fins on the rocks). It lays on the bottom of the tank, sometimes appearing dead. I've been looking at common Betta fish diseases and it seems to have ick (white grain like spots on its body and head). Does anyone have any advice? Pet store people said once fish get sick they usually don't get any better. They swore by BettaFix and we applied some last night. The ick only appeared today. Should I just humanely put this guy...

What are your water parameters?
How long has the tank been set up and running?
>>
Warm water, salt dosing, frequent water changes, feeding as often as the fish will eat. Warm water speeds up the life cycle of the ich and increases the amount of free-swimming protozoa which cannot survive in any sort of saline environment.
>>
>>2011183
No, what is the nitrogen level and ph.
You do have a water testing kit, right?
And you know how to use it to balance out your tank, right?

Because that is basic fish care.

I’ve had this bird for a little more than 3 years now, and while he got a lot better compared to the state he was in when I got him, he doesn’t seem to be getting any better now. Greentexting short summary
>adopted a cockatiel that was abandoned by its owner (bird was 12 at the time)
>pretty sure the previous owner was fucking horrible and knew nothing about taking care of birds
>at first tiel wouldn’t eat ANYTHING else than millet seeds
>when I showed it fruits, vegetables, different seeds or any other kind of food it didn’t even seemed to recognize them as food
>when he started moulting (a few days after I got him) I noticed that some of the longer feathers were damaged
>bent like they were broken while growing, some also looked like they had their ends cut/ripped
>when I let him out of cage he wouldn’t fly; he’d try to glide a little but mostly fail at it. Very clumsy while trying to fly
>I suspect his previous owner didn’t even let him out of cage once; muscles must’ve fucking vanished
> EXTREMELY afraid of hands, would panic or get very aggressive when he saw a raised hand
>afraid of everything in his cage except water/food containers
>very aggressive towards other birds, attacks them, aggressive towards most people too
Overall I suspect that for the whole 12 years he was either kept in a very small cage alone, or kept with a bird that was harassing him (judging by his panic/aggression attacks when he spots another bird). It’s been 3 years now and although it wasn’t easy I managed to ‘rehabilitate’ him a little; he’s now eating diverse food, he’s not aggressive towards me and not afraid of hands so much anymore, though he still won’t let anyone pet him (but he’s fine of sitting on my hand/finger, something he would never do 3 years ago).

He also got better at flying, although he never got perfect at it; he keeps “gliding” and mostly doing short jumps boosted by his wings rather than flying (I even suspect he may have never learned how to properly fly). The thing I’m most worried about though, and the one that didn’t change through those 3 years, is that he doesn’t seem to be interested in anything. He just keeps sitting in one place and does not respond to anything. At first I put some toys in his cage but later I took them away as I was worried for his safety when he’d freak out seeing...

I have a ~8 year old Green Cheeked Conure, and I don't know that he really plays with his toys much either. That having been said, we take him out of his cage a LOT and he's always very active with us when he's out and about. Loves to try and eat our food when he's at the dinner table with us, will fly around the house looking for us, etc. Is he in the cage the majority of the day? What are his surroundings like when he's in the cage? Lighting, walls, etc?

So
I feed my leopard gecko super worms. One hid itself really well (even I didn't see it) and I guess became this shit
I want to keep it as a pet
I have a 12x12x12 vivarium I had bought my leopard gecko in
(Pictured is a 15 gal tank because the vivarium wasn't suitable for him)
I have yet to put that cube to good use
Thinking of having some kind of insect/plant mix in there

Any idea how to do this?
Snails and beetles and shit
Maybe actual worms
Do I use potting soil or topsoil?
Man I hope I don't come off as an idiot

Potting soil or topsoil will both work.
Chances are there are insecticides in the topsoil, but whatever. That thing will require some dead leaves and a relatively humid enclosure - the soil and the leaves should do fine.

"Most species are generalistic omnivores, and feed on decaying leaves, rotting wood, fresh plant matter, dead insects, and fungi as larvae and adults.[7]"

Some of them can even live up to two years.
Enjoy your new, uh, beetle.

I mean. Unless you have a big enough enclosure and the lights to grow small fruiting plants, I doubt you're gonna do much for them.

How do I know it's time to euthanize my cat?

Shes got tumors under her arm
some neurologic damage to her spine (if you scratched her butt she would fall over)
She has some kidney issues too
Shes been doing weird things all day though
All day she has been 'headpressing' into this one corner, shes been pacing around the room, she fell down the stairs today too, but slow enough a cat could catch themself, but she didnt. Shes also been tripping over everything.
She keeps trying to lay down but...

Best to take them to the vet and see what the vet says about euthenasia under these conditions.

>>2010098
I called a vet and explained what was wrong
I think she said something about telling the veterinarian the next morning (they all left)
But I asked how much it would cost to make sure i had the money and we ended the conversation on that.
The only thing she's not doing is defecating all over herself
It seems like shes finally falling asleep now
Should i even bother euthanizing her?
Should i let her die of natural causes?
>>
>>2010101
I think that's a decision that's up to you op. I worked at an animal clinic and euthanasia is always hard even though it's an everyday thing. It's a tough decision to make but if the cat is really old with all of these issues it might pass away soon.

I spent the whole day wandering around redwüd groves in awe. By the time I was on the PCH, starving and running out of gas, everything out there was closed. I almost died.

I think everyone should see the redwoods at least once in their lives. Thousands of years old, only found in California and a little bit of Oregon, and the largest trees in the world. OP's pic I'm pretty sure is Hyperion, the world's tallest tree. Pic related is General Sherman, the world's largest tree. The costal redwoods are the tall ones and are found along the coast, and the giant sequoias and the wide ones and are found more inland towards the Sierra Nevadas. See both if you can! Definitely my favorite trees of all time.
