FROM WHICH COUNTRY DID AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD DOGS ORIGINATE?
This was a tricky one. The answer is the U.S. The breed was developed in the west United States, as a herding dog. But yes, for some reason it is called the Australian Shepherd.
FUN FACT! The Australian Shepherd is often called an "aussie" for short.
FUN FACT! #2 Many aussies are born with a naturally stubbed tail.

WHICH OF THESE FISH WOULD BE THE BEST TANK MATE FOR A BETTA FISH?
Most of you voted for clownfish, but the answer is: corydora catfish.
Corydora catfish are small catfish (about 1-2 inches). They make great tank mates for betta's because corys are generally very peaceful fish, and bettas and corydora catfish generally swim at different levels of the tank, the corys staying at the bottom most of the time. Corys are also not brightly colored, which is good because bettas often attack colorful fish mistaking them for another betta.
A clownfish would not be an appropriate tank mate for bettas mainly because clownfish are saltwater fish, and bettas are freshwater fish. They could not survive in each other's habitats.
Another betta fish is not an appropriate tank mate for a male betta, because male bettas fight to the death. (Which is why they are often called "fighting fish")
And tiger barbs are not good tank mates for bettas because.... no one seems to know why. They just don't get along well. Tiger barbs tend to be nippy and unfriendly with bettas.
NOTE: Corydora catfish are great tank mates for bettas, but you shouldn't put any other kind of catfish with a betta. Corydora catfish are small being the size of a betta, but most other catfish will grow large and may eventually eat the betta.
New quizzes will be up as soon as I think of some good ones. I've got quiz writer's block.
