Moving baby snails as they get bigger to a smaller tank, and am watching another mystery snail clutch come along. Mts are multiplying so fast I need to have a giveaway lol.
Cut back on feeding...and RAOK time!!!
Oh and I cleaned my 72G - moved a million little plants and gobs of Java Moss, unclogged the intake for the Fluval FX-5, scooped out a zillion floating plants. Vac-d the substrate.
Captured about 40 mystery snails to get shipped out next week.
Moved a few things around, just a little. Peeled bark of of part of my DW the snails hadn't ate yet. now it is a brilliant orange color, too bad it just turns brown in a few weeks.
Made a huge mess, and have a 5G bucket full of left overs, now we are at bucket #4.
