Ok so I did not read the article about cycling my tank with a shrimp first, so now I have a tank with snails, n crabs. So based on what I read, is it safe to say it is too late to use this process to cycle?
Out of three (astraea) snails, one is left alive, two I removed as the crabs were eating them. Seven (nassarius) snails. I have been able to account for all but 1, cant find the little guy anywhere. HMMM. Not sure if dead or playing hide n seek. There are a couple that are now hiding in bed but mostly still hanging on side of tank.
I am assuming this is normal, to lose some. Honestly the two that died, never moved after they left the store. They clung to one another n that was that until the crabs got em.....stress......?!
Next week I will be getting the water test kits.....
But now after reading the article I do not want to hurt fish. SO what is the best thing now as I have a little crew working away in there.
Tank has been running about a week.....so still very early.
I also have question about my LR
, would that be in his discussion or somewhere else? Ok that is if for the moment. Thank you for taking the time, I am so grateful.
