Hoping its not to far gone I got this snail from Petsmart

Attachment 197003 if I knew my water wouldn't work well with snail I never would have got it I learned hard way about needing to research more because Petsmart doesn't inform you well. I am new to fish and aquariums
We are here to help! Now you know, research first.. Even then you can make errors. It is a learning experience. But hopefully you learn as much as possible BEFORE.

Don't be so hard on yourself, it should be fine, if you can raise the calcium in the water some. You can also feed the snail some Crab Cuisine from Hikari, our Petco has it for 3.99 The snail should love it.

I just woke up from a terrible dream that my fish were all dead and the water chemistry test all showed "sludge". I came down and checked my tanks and sure enough, the Nitrite were showing just a bit in my big tank. I took some tank decor out last week and added a few fish at the same time and knew I triggered a mini cycle. Been testing twice a day and this is the first time I have seen a rise in Nitrite, before it's been Ammonia rising and water changes near daily. Changing the water now.

Our subconscious mind is amazing! I'm glad you caught the spike and did a water change!

Meant to post this yesterday..

Topped off tanks

Day 2 of zucchini in our 6G Cyl Tank, hoping our pair of otos will eat some so far no takers...

Day 2 of organic baby carrot slices in our 2G Nano Long shrimp tank. The shrimp seem to love carrot discs and I seem to always catch a few shrimp picking on them.

Picked up some new livestock for various tanks today, acclimating and will "launch" tomorrow

Did a 1/3 pwc on my 12G Edge. Plants seemed to be getting used to the change in lighting, LEDs now, and seem to even be growing a little bit. I see pinkish tips on the Red Rotala and the Sunset Hygrophila. The Anubias Nana Petite is seemingly unfazed by the move, still looks perfect with the tiniest new leaves. Staurogyne Repens is looking good, lost three from the substrate and they are now floaters, will have to capture them on the next wc and put them back.

Christmas Moss tied to the 10" long DW branch (8" of moss) seems brown in the middle of the branch and green coming in nicely on the ends. Can't tell any reason why. Hope it either greens up or is grown over with happy moss.

Spiderwood is still leaching tannins so I have lovely golden water. Still clear so it's completely fine with me!

Added water to all the tanks. Added fresh water to the plant buckets and MTS snail bucket waiting for transport tomorrow.

Can't believe how much more flow my old Aqueon HOB filter has since I cleaned it out really well!!! lol It's really cleaning the water, oh and getting out a million snails and baby fish getting fed fish fry food several times a day didn't hurt either!!!

So getting the 16 G ready for the new shipment of 40 Boraras Brigittae. New Nerites - Tire tracks and horned, and on the fence about spending 20 for 3 Orange Lazer Cories. Normally $12-15 each at the lfs. I have one now which came from lfs from a mixed WC /wild caught Cory tank for about $5. Very lucky find, have had him for awhile now!!! He hangs out with the other Cories presently.

Will use 16G as a QT before I split some of them up into my two other shrimp tanks.

Put away a bunch of misc. stuff I left out when I was moving things around so much between buckets and tanks and shipping the other day. And now off to work soon to pay for all my fun!!!
