Re: Drip acclimating fish

My only question... How do you keep a big, dumber than a hammer, nosey black lab from deciding the towel is a play toy and the water with the floaty swimmy stuff isn't to drink and that the floaty swimmy things are NOT tasty treats to be snarked and enjoyed.

This is the dog that leaves nose prints on the exterior glass and growls at some fish but wags her tail at others, ate an entire can of fish food and a bag full of algae wafers among a few other things... (Did I mention my dog is dummber than a hammer?) my dog is so dumb she was trying to Nom on a Computer hard drive that she stole off my desk.

Re: Drip acclimating fish

^^^That's funny!^^^
I got 5 labs and they definately drink out of my fry tanks(or any low to the ground)!
A bungee cord or rubber band to keep towel in place and due dilligance of the owner(I am really no one to speak on this!).Possibly a 5 g bucket with a lid that could have hole drilled in it for the drip line.
I have had no hard drive issues,BUT time warner cable has replaced more than a few remote controls!I still don't think they're dumb,confused? Possibly even mis understood.We need to remeber they are mans best friend(at least 5 of mine!).

I have similar issues. I have had one cat that will try and stick his paws in the bucket to get the fish, if by chance it is not covered. He has removed the cover though. I place one of my dining room chairs right over the bucket as much as it will fit. The legs brace the sides so it can't be moved and it will usually cover enough of the top to prevent the towel to be removed.
