Pets. Who never had one, has one, or wants one? From gerbils to cats, from birds to snakes, there's a pet for everyone.

Ever since I got my first turtle 30 years ago, I've always had a bit of a love for the critters, and recently something I've always wanted came true - more turtles.

So far my little zoo consists of these critters:

Otto, a sternotherus odoratus (common musk turtle aka stinkpot)
Cathy, sternotherus odoratus (common musk turtle aka stinkpot)
Cristel, a trachemys scripta scripta (yellow-bellied slider)
Lluky, a trachemys scripta scripta (yellow-bellied slider)
Alfred Jodokus, a graptemys pseudogeographica kohni (Mississippi map turtle)
Mats, a pseudemys nelsoni (Redbelly turtle)

A small fish tank with a single male ancistrus and several red cherry shrimps.

And then there's a fish tank with these lovely creatures:

Ancistrii
Bamboo shrimp
Black tetras
Banjo catfish
Clown botia
Corydoras (multiple subspecies)
Glass catfish
Guppies
Horseface loach
Otocinclii
Platyfish
Saigon loaches
Siamese algae eaters

Whereas the fish all share a fish tank, most of the turtles have their own tank. The yellow bellied sliders share a fish tank though.
