You can have every last one. They are a pain in the rear end!

They sure are, I had them real bad for a while. I cut way back on feeding for a while and they've all but disappeared. I see one or two around every once in a while, but mostly all the ones I see are empty shells. I also used the trap like your planning and it worked great. I got better results with softened zucchini than I did with carrots though.

Oh ok thanks! I was wondering if it was the little snails that I see in my tank. They are pretty small and like a light tan color. Any idea what these are?

I sat in front of my setups and stared at my little fishies for about an hour before heading off to work. The best way to start a day :-D

Hi a 50% water change and a complete clean of the HOB - tank in a bad way - water cloudy:( Fed a catfish wafer that they hadn't eat - BAD:nono: This tank needs upgrading as soon as possible!

I did a 10% water change and cleaned canister fliter.

I fed my fish, and thought more about how to aquascape my tank with live plants after I stick the undergravel filter in.

That's cool. I had a Raphael cat in a 29 gal tank - he disappeared shortly after I put him in and I thought he was gone. About 6 months later I'm cleaning the tank. I have a tall, plastic rock that was time to clean. I was very surprised to find my little Raphael in the sink when I was cleaning that rock! And I had cleaned that rock at least 2 other times!! I got him back in the tank safely and he lived for about 3 more years! Cool fish!

Packed and shipped the raok packages for Java Moss and Petrified Wood stone, and one sold package of Petrified Wood stone. Took a look at the plants to help decide which ones for my new tank.

Asked a couple questions here to help on the new set up. Will do pwc on the 35G later this evening when I get home.

TidBitz 01-28-2013 09:39 PM

Recycled and set my 37T (my sis hasn't picked up yet) as a temp for my shrimp.. my sis bought me oh so love that girl, now for the DW I want, bartering here I come. I'll get that money yet.
