If you don't want them to breed get nerites. They don't breed in freshwater.

No, nerites are weirdos haha. When the eggs hatch, they go into a planktonic stage. After several of these, they finally turn into baby snails. So in a refugium they would just be eaten after they enter the DT. I remember my LFS (of which i stopped going to last year) was getting theirs from a local guy who bred them in a spare 10 gallon with no inhabitants except nerites. He did daily water changes and fed them coral food. I don't remember exactly what, but I'd imagine it was phytoplankton because that's the smallest.

My mystery snail has been busy i have 4 clutches and i think its looking for another place now... my cray is coming out more and more but still has eggs..although i think she is thinning them out bc she doesnt have as many as before... i like always have several female african cichlids holding..


Need to order some more floating plants i just hate to pay for plants then kill them bc thats how it always works .. if i buy it then it always dies if someone gives it to me then it lives.. thats messed up !!! Oh well ill prolly take the plunge and buy some anyway..

All i have done is feed my tanks and check temps

Congrats on your fish friends progress! Hope you get shrimp, that would be neat.

& I would love to ship you a floater, but I wouldn't know how much it would cost. I got the money and wouldn't mind trying free of charge, but I live in hawaii...

★As for topic, had to do WC on guppy QT accidentally spilled a bunch of food. Normally I pinch with my fingers, but I just washed my hands. *sigh* Anyway taken care of=)

I did a 50% wc on my hex tank. Took out all the stuff and rearranged the tank. I'm hoping it looks good. Hopefully the water will be cleared up by tomorrow.

Today I fed my fish and did a partial water change! I also discovered that the upside down catfish I thought was a goner months ago is very much alive and well! I was shocked because he was HUGE! How could I have missed him? LOL

Rearranged and cleaned one tank. Bought plastic shower soap caddys with suction cups at walmart to use as ledges in my tang tank. Picked small red and blue rocks. Bought anubias at petco. Placed the rocks in caddys with anubias attched to caddys by carefully pulling roots through holes and placed in tank. Yep, fun everyday. I never stop. I like it. Gave fish a place to hide along tank walls without rocking the whole thing up a mile high and added nice greenery and dimension. Now for the fish to use them and me watch the plants grow. Some New buddies coming tomorrow!
