I just place a small piece in a bowl of water and when thawed, dump worms and water into tank. I'd have to say be careful... I was amazed at how many bloodworms there were in such a small chunk off...

No, I don't want a big whack of snails. I'd be happy if these didn't reproduce at all. I just always hear that if you get over run with snails... get some loaches. I want some loaches anyway...

Actually I was just thinking. I have a slot all the way across my tank in the lid from my XP3 hoses coming in/out. Will the snails escape? What should I put over it to prevent this if yes? Any...

No seashells or coral in the tank and the vinegar did nothing to the rocks but wet them. I tried 3 different ones. My other fish are being acclimated right now and I'll check params again over the...

Actually, no I didn't. I thought if they were being sold as rocks for ponds and such, they would be just fine. Just put vinegar on it and see if it fizzes for the "vinegar method", correct?
