Welcome!

We talk fish here...lots of fish, and snails and shrimp and all manner of SW!

Mostly I get a polite question and I see the person trying to choke down shock and/or laughter. You raise shrimp...to eat...how big are they...so small you can't really see them, how does a person get into a hobby such as this, arent there bigger ones you can actually see... those cost how much per shrimp... and you don't eat them...people buy them? You ship them in the mail!!!!!!!!?????????

Snails [quizical stare] .......from the garden?

y'all know what I am talking about

It was great the last place I worked people would ask me what's new or what's happening in my aquarium everyday. I miss that. It's always crazy to see the look on people's faces when you tell them how to really take care of fish. Of course I do it politely and more as guidance because they didn't get it from the pet store.

Hah, I heard this yesterday. Bought a new mystery snail, neighbor asked what I had in the brown bag, and proceeded to tell me for $5 I can have all the garden snails I want from his place

I've never had any actually. Not even pond snails. All my tanks are snail free except the puffer tank and mystery snails which are not invasive.
