You're right...he's about 9 months old and big as a squash ball.

This one doesn't (check applesnail.net for verification). You just have to be sure of the one your getting (Pomacea bridgesii) A lot of the mixed (mystery) snails do snack on plants.

One interesting feature of the Golden Apple is they will capture/release air under thier operculum and then float all around the tank. It's really cool to see it.

ok got another question lol i know what else is new. i was wondering if a electric yellow cichlid would be compatible with my angel, guppies and rams. i absolutly love the colouration of them but i didnt know if it would be to agressive or if something would be agressive to it.

It would be way to aggressive IMO. The yellow labs are known for being peaceful compared to other mbuna, but that's not saying much! Your fish are much too delicate to live with one, and I don't really think your tank is big enough. As if that weren't enough of a problem, they thrive in much different water conditions than the fish you already have. Well, there you have it- an excuse to set up another tank!

Beautiful job...nice coverage.

In regard to cost...I got him free from my LFS. You know...good customer discount type of thing. He actually gave me three...one committed hari kari by climbing out and falling behind tank. The other I gave to my mom-in-law.

And you're right about the meowing...I happen to be a fan of the show (got hooked a couple of years ago while babysitting my niece).

AA has a web storage site Here . It's free, but if you make a donation, you get a ton of storage space and bandwidth. Add your pics to a gallery and then link them via the url code for the gallery.

( A name here ) It's that simple.

In regard to your photo quality...are you serious? I thought some of your photos were mine! LOL.

Your new tank pics look great. That is exactly the kind of tank that rams want! Are you still having problems with aggression?

Jchillin your gary is as big as a squishy ball! I hope my snails get big. My all time favorite spongebob is the one where Patrick puts all the fish hooks in his mouth and says, "Does this look dangerous to you?" I also love the one about bad words! If only I could live in a pineapple under the sea.

That's how my Bolivians are. As long as there is no damage and they don't seem too stressed, you shouldn't have to worry about them.
