should be, I think. To keep it cycled I mean. They produce poo just like anything else the bacteria colony will just be much smaller. But I don't think I'm likely to have more than one or two sick fish at a time.

The nifty thing about apple snails is they do fine in a bowl of water for limited amounts of time as long as the ammonia levels are low so when I have to use it as a hospitol I'd move him out. I can pull the water from the main tank. When I had problems cycling the tank I ended up having to medicate sick fish (yeah I know better now, in terms of cycling a tank I mean) and that's what I did and actually he seemed to flourish on it. Or alternately I can put him in the main tank and take a risk on the plants... My suspision, however, is that once the plants are well enough established Paco isn't going to be able to do much harm before I can spot it and grab him. For a while at least that 2 gal is going to be a QT while I add 3 more female platies, 1 male platie, 3 neon/cardnal tetras So it'll stay cycled one fishie at a time.
