When we decided to adopt cats, we knew we wanted two. They can play together and comfort each other when we’re away. To accomplish this, we did the easy thing and adopted a pair of sisters who had already been sharing space together at the store. We knew they got along and loved each other! However, if you have had a solitary cat and are adding a new kitty, or are adopting two cats who don’t know each other that well, follow our tips below on how to introduce cats to each other.

Vampire Shrimp Care

Vampire shrimp are a fun addition to your planted tanks. Native to Western Africa and South America, these guys are typically peaceful, tranquil and shy.  For that reason, adding plants and other “hiding places” like rocks and decorative pieces is a good idea. These shrimp tend to like some space, so at least a 20′ gallon tank (preferably horizontal so they have room to walk) is best. As filter feeders the shrimp will use their tiny “fanned” hands to grasp food as it floats by. That means they need a steady, oxygen rich current and floating food. The plants do […]
