Eric is an aquarium enthusiast with over two decades of experience caring for a wide array of tropical fish. The green spotted puffer GSP is a fish with unique needs and care requirements. Their spotted yellow-green backs make them an attractive choice for home aquariums, and their interesting behaviors will separate them from most any other fish you have ever owned. In the wild, green spotted puffers Tetraodon nigroviridis or syn Dichotomyctere nigroviridis are found in Southeast Asia where they inhabit rivers and estuaries. In captivity, unfortunately they are often the victims of poorly educated pet shops and aquarium owners. Perhaps more than any other fish species, GSPs serve as an example of why it is so important to research aquarium fish before bringing them home.

Easy Pets for Kids
If your puppy is six months old, you have likely watched him go through his fast-growing juvenile stage from age three to six months. Now that your puppy has reached six months of age, he can be considered an adolescent. During this time, your puppy's physical changes will slow down a bit. Energy levels may increase and you may see a newer side of your puppy's personality. Be prepared to adapt to your puppy's needs in this life stage. By six months of age, your puppy's growth will slow down. Most small dog breeds will be nearly finished growing at this time, though they may continue to fill out over the next three to six months.

Bearded Dragons are naturally found throughout the hot outback desert of Australia. There are several closely related species refered to as bearded dragons but the one most commonly kept as a pet is the 'central bearded dragon' Pogona vitticeps. Often seen climbing upon rocky outcrops or fallen trees, bearded dragons love basking in the Australian sun. However, they will usually retreat into a burrow during the hottest part of the day.
