What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Pakistani loaches ( aka yoyo loach ) apparently love to chew on snails

A: Can I put them in a flourite based tank?
B: Can I put them with other community fish? (Neons, apistos, GBR, cories, tetras)?

What kind of snails?

Did a all water out of my 46G QT tank and will refill tomorrow - maybe. Considering just selling it and getting it out of the way.

Added the 3 little Angels to the 72G. The 2 big Angels have been anything but Angels - chasing the little guys around, even fed them all first. If they don't settle down I will probably move them out.

Maybe moving the 72G Monday... Depends on how much energy I have in the morning.

TMaier, not sure what kind they are, they have lighter colored shells though if that helps? How do I tell?

The only time I've been successful adding angels is if they are the same size...I hope they work out for you!!

Fed the new gourami bloodworms for the first time and he gobbled them up! Can't find the algae eater though...

Cut a lengthwise slice of zucchini and nuke it in the microwave for about 15 seconds, then, when it cools down, plant it in the substrate (you might have to use something to hold it down) just before lights out. When you come back the next morning, I guarantee you'll find it covered in snails. Then you can take it out and toss it.

Other means are loaches and (I think) pea puffers, and assassin snails.

Refilled the CO2 tank. Drop checkers are green again. Glad the sports store was open today.
Did not trim the plants or do a PWC today. Was planning to but life got in the way. Tank is a jungle. Not a bad looking jungle. Just a bit overgrown.
