    Unfortunately we will no longer be able to purchase interceptor here in the states. We may have to order it from Australia as some of my friends have done. This not only affects the red bugs in our tanks but its devastating to people with dogs in the Herding Group that are affected with the MDR1...

    I was thinking about how fish in our tanks get something like ich for example and it is hard to contain, spreads like crazy and kills in large numbers. How does it work in the wild? I mean are there like isolated cases or does it not really occur that much in the wild since fish are under less...

    I don't know what's worse, the economy or reactions to the economy. A young man was "trapped" against our fence tonight holding a 4 month old black lab. Cody, one of the neighborhood dogs, had him surrounded trying to investigate the stranger and the guy holding him. He was making a fuss, so...

    So I had some credit from SWF.com and placed a clean up crew. I decided after seeing these a year or so ago I wanted some. I did a little reasearch online and called swf and asked the pertinent questions, like where are they collected from, feeding, params, longevity. I got answers but not so...

    Our cats somehow got fleas (neighbors dog is the prime suspect, as the owner put down a ton of flea powder in our hallway, we live in an apartment complex) and they are just getting out of hand. We've treated our cats, bathed them, and comb them multiple times daily. We just can't keep up. I've...

    I was forwarded an email from my sister in law, from a co-worker I believe, that found some lab puppies and is trying to find a home for them. Her and her husband have been trying to find a shelter for them but everyone she has contacted has told her they have no room. She is going to call...

    I adopted a dog, specifically a 2 year old rat terrier, 2 months ago. I knew exactly what kind of behavioral problems I could expect from him, being a shelter dog (with no less than 3 prior owners) and a terrier, but I just couldn't resist his cute little back leg walk :D Anyway, the first 3...

    Okay, since my last question about the use of interceptor, are there any other medications that can used to kill red bugs? I notice there are chemicals in other flea and tick killers that seem to have the same effect on the bugs nervous systems. Thanks again for any help.

    I was in to Go Fish! yesterday and picked up some Sweetwater Zoo Plankton. Partially because it was cheap, and partially because I've wanted to give it a try in my tanks. So I'm just getting a feel for others experiences with it. Have you used it before? Was it worth it? I fed a little bit...
