Sweety pie would love that pup. Too bad I'm heartless and tell her we have too many four legged animals as is.

Also let us know how you like that in line TDS meter. I almost bought one then opted to get a 14$ handheld pen TDS meter. Does that sound about right?

And if u are still curious about sub straight I can post a pick once I'm home from work and done testing water parameters

Skunk Cleaners x 2
Blood Fire Shrimp x 2
Emerald Crab x 1
Watchman Goby x 1
Purple/Yellow (forget name)
CUC

Basically anything that flows with the current...lol. But those are the basics.

Those snails are only 1/4" long. They can shift fairly easy. And most bury themselves during the day in it?
