I think you mean "Clove polyps" and there are two types of Nitite snails, one that stays underwater and are smaller in size and a larger type that tend to climp out of the water at night. I guess to get away from predetors. The larger ones will end up on the floor most of the time and are a waste of money.

yea~ my typo XP

hahah I think I got the larger nitite snails, and yea they do away climb all the way up to the top. when I first got them, they do climb out from the tank and end up on the floor, but recently I think they have learned that not to climb out the tank, and so far a week already , no snails on the floor. they worked great for my tank, clean the diatom very nicely.

But incase, I m thinking to get some kind of net to cover the top.
any suggestion guys?

Update for 10/4/2009

this morning was cutting up some of my card boards to cover my DIY stand, so it will look better, and yes, it does looks better than seeing the blocks.

front

without the cover

behind the scene haha, where I do water change and kill the aips XD


and after I have a piece of card board left that fit right for my aquarium background, so I brought my old art tools out and start painting my own background. not done yet, will finish it when I have more time.


made some changes
