I have 2 Nano freshwater tanks. One has my 2 always hungry Glo-fish Lars&Larry. They've been through so much that it's amazing that they're alive.Lars is pink and Larry is orange. Larry hangs around the sponge filter and likes to be upside-down or sideways.While Lars loves attention and when I'm near the tank. There's 4 Mystery snails in with them. I'm trying to get my Betta fish in the tank. He's been in the cage with them for 2 days now.
I was in a accident last year and lost the use of my left arm from elbow to fingers. So it makes things a bit harder but I love watching everything. My bigger tank has 3 Cherry Barbs and a guppy. With White,Blue and Golden Mystery snails and 2 red shrimp that all survived a major brown snail slime take over. I was taking 50-100 of these pests out daily and they just kept coming back with a vengeance. I was told by the place where I bought the plants and snails that the brown snails don't hurt anything. Big lie.I've since learned the bleach trick with new plants. But they slimmed everything to death during my hospital stay. The killed off 2 clutches of Mystery snail babies.All plants except the one and the grass ll.
It took me 52 hours straight to clean up everything that lived which wasn't much. The big mystery snails were even covered in slime. It was horrible. But I think I have it all set now.Water is in range. I have not seen the 2 red shrimp since moving them.
My tanks mean a lot to me and it will be nice to talk with people who love they're tanks too. My friends don't understand why I put so much time into them. Hopefully this will help me friends to talk with.
I am a divorced, woman who just enjoys her Aquarium.
The 2nd picture is me.
The 1st is sideways 'again" It's mystery snails getting to know my Betta with Larry doing his sideways mode..
