Get rid of Snails overnight!!!

So everyone has there own way of doing so. I have a snail only tank for my puffer. And i wanted to give the snails some good eating to plump up. LOL. So i cooked and blanched a piece of zucchini and 24 hours later this is what i came home to. So i say give it a try, as you can see it worked for me!

Sweet! I'm getting my colonies built up too, but will try that for extra food. How's the crayfish doing (growing/breeding)?

The crays are doing good, grown prolly 1/4 inch so far just about 2inches. Suppose to start breeding around this size. Either way they are cool to watch. I have ghosties in with them and I see em catch a few here and there. So they should grow fast

When I add zucchini to my tank, ALL of my fish will munch on it. That includes my female bettas, five banded barbs, black neon tetras, and ottos.

Limpet,

How are your two GSP's doing?

James, MY GF has a sailfin gib, and he loves to suck on the zucchini all day after he eats all the algae.

Oh yeah, that's their staple food, but I can tell the snails are their favorites. Can't wait to get setup with feeder crays too lol.

Ya, I'm pretty excited for the crays. I read a bunch or articles they will start to breed around 2 inches. So its only a matter of time. It will probably be awhile before he gets one. I'll feed a small one or two but I want to make sure I breed them correctly. And maybe down the road sell some. And possibly give some away to people who have helped me
