Making this quick thing because I'm getting a lot of people asking for advice again.
Disclaimer: I'm giving advice based on my personal experiences and opinions, it isn't necessarily the best or most accurate advice and I'm 100% aware of this. Whether you take the advice here to heart or not is completely up to you
Consider this: don't make a closed species.
Owning a closed species is one of the most fucking stressful things I have ever had to deal with, and not just because I'm an introvert. Owning a species automatically puts you in a position where you will be irritating other people because you have something that they want. If they can't get what they want for whatever reason be it lack of income, not being fast enough, ect. some people will direct that frustration right at you and will do it in so, so many different ways. I'm not going to list them in this journal, I just don't have the energy to gather all the shitty things p
