So I'm going to get a pair of ferrets. (I know /an/ doesn't like ferrets, but if anyone with ferret experience is around, your input would be appreciated.)
Now, I've been doing quite a bit of reading and have found that apparently ferrets benefit from being caged outside, as long as it's not in extreme heat/cold. Now, the area of Florida I live in is pretty temperate year round, so now I'm considering caging the ferrets on my apartment balcony. I will be providing shade and a nest box, and I will bring the cage inside if it's too cold or hot. Simultaneously, this eliminates the fear of the cage stinking up my apartment. Is this a super terrible idea?
Also, what is the best food for a ferret? The ferret at the pet store here you have to feed Marshall's to get the 1 year guarantee, but I've heard Marshall's is a terrible food and I'd rather not raise baby ferrets on a bad food. I'd rather forego the guarantee and try to give them a good start. Is that also a bad idea?

So what exactly makes good quality dog food?
For the longest time I have read and read information about dog food quality, no corn, raw diets, read about the expensive brands you can't find in stores, etc. All this stuff about how the general vet recommended brands are shitty and outdated.
And yet since I've worked as a vet tech the last two years, the people who buy those higher quality dog foods always seem to have the most unhealthy dogs. Diarrhea, vomiting, skin troubles, rotten/falling out teeth whatever.
The healthiest dogs always seem to be on some middle range quality food. The cheap shit makes dogs fat but the expensive ones really seem to fuck with a lot of the dogs and I don't quite know why.
What's with this? It's confusing to hear both sides--our vet who recommends what the forum folks consider shit and the people I've spoken to on the forums who are giving their dogs what the vets consider shit... But then seeing proof from both sides.
I've always just been a reptile person myself. Not quite as confusing when it comes to diets if they just eat rats or insects right? I don't get the whole dog food thing.

So, /an/, if i put a fish in a plastic bag full of water, how long could he survive (when i feed him)?
Oxigen etc should be about the same as in the glasses like the one in the pic, I assume for one fish, the oxigen traveling through the waterfront should be enough, so why shouldn't it work?
>>inb4 there are plants in the glass, there aren't always
