Ok THAT was cool. I just watched one of our Percula Clowns feed the anemone.
I know they're SUPPOSED to do that from time to time but this is the first time I've seen it. He grabbed a bit of brine shrimp that was obviously too big for it and just plunked it right down in the middle of the anemone. That was COOOL!

Why do they do that? Is there some symbotic relationship?

Yes, actually, Tony. The Percual clowns and the anemone survive together.
The anemone's fronds (is that the right word?:) are slightly posionous and will sting any fish that touches it, except the clowns, which are immune. They live near and in the anemone, which provides them refuge from larger fish. In return the clowns will sometimes gather bits of food and place it into the anemone. Anemones don't move very well. :)

Steve... the thing about marine plants is that they can be VERY hard to keep in an aquariumif your light and water are off, you can kill both them and your fish....

I have a dog related question. I have a Bichon Frise who's 11 years old.
In the past year or so she's had an increasingly difficult time with stairs.
Judging from her age, she could be having impaired vision or it could also be arthritis. She wont even attempt stairs unless it's very well lit, yet she will go up the garage steps in the dark so I am kind of leaning more toward arthritis. She doesnt act like shes in pain. She's still very frisky. When the doorbell rings she sits downstairs and barks, she's gotten to the point where she wont even climb stairs to investigate people at the door and she wont even go upstairs when friends and family visit and call her upstairs, she just sits downstairs and wags her tail. Any ideas what this could be caused by? I'm very confused cause the not trying it unless its well lit sorta points toward impaired vision but the other stuff kinda says arthritis. Any suggestions? She is a very friendly dog, so I know she's not freaked out about anything. She eats regularly, etc and otherwise acts completely normal.

I would ask your vet about giving the dog some thing for arthritis. I have an old cat that gets a baby asprin once a week. I mix a crushed asprin in butter and rub it on the cat's face. You have to be careful, I know that for cats, an asprin is a very strong anti-coagulant and a single regular asprin would kill a normal cat. I don't know about dogs, but it does sound like the dog is avoiding something that hurts (climbing stairs).

Lost our cat this last weekend... She was obviously in pain when we took her to the vet, and then the next day again... They thought she had cancer from the xrays and were very surprised how quickly she was getting worse. Not the best cat we ever had, but it was sad.

Confort Tony, sometimes it's like losing one of the family.

It literally IS losing one of the family.

Thanks. Even though she was a one person cat (my son Bryan), it was tough to have it happen.

I saw those greyhounds too, l'etranger. They were so sweet. So skinny. Did you read the clipboard they had? It was a petition against what Spain is doing to them, but it didn't go into detail what they do.

Patriot: Well, I like it as a pet, live pets are over rated, a virtual pet doesn't run away, die, eat you out of house and home or make a mess. As I see it, a pet is a companion, and we each have our own idea as to what makes a good companion. :)

*grins*

Ok, you got me. By that reasoning it DOES qualify as a pet. ;)

In my case, I'd love to have a cat or a dog or something, but there are problems. First, I don't like dogs that are yappy and it seems like all the small breeds are yappy, so those are out. The larger breeds that pass point one need some space to move around and they need outside to run and such and where I live I have neither to offer, so I feel it would be cruel to the dog. That leaves cats as still fine, but this brings me to a problem that cuts out dogs, cats, mice, and most other popular pets. I'm allergic to the fur, or I believe it is the mites and dandruff that comes with the fur as I understand it. My allergy is bad enough that I simply canít have a furry animal as a pet. So I guess there are snakes and lizards and all, but frankly, I donít find any of those to be much good as a pet for me.
A bird might be ok, but they tend to be delicate in many ways and I fear a bird would die young in my care, which is no good. So virtual pets seem like the only way to go for me. :(
