I started with 5 but i'm down to 3 now. a couple of them didn't make the transition to my tank unfortunately. As far as snails go, one of the LFS here will gladly give me all of them they can find so i usually walk out with a couple hundred at a time.

Dude, the tank looks great! I love the Aflame sword. Good luck with the flamingo buddy! Ill swap you some affinis "metallic red" or some nurii "pahang mutated" for a plant let or 2 if it gets going!
Keep it up man!
