I've kept the same layout, but I've introduced some white clouds. They've successfully bred twice so far.

I'm going to change the scape sometime this week... I'll post some before and after pics then.

Here is a link wher you can read a little more about it.

That snail is on the hard to come by list for apple snail people like me. If you don't want it send it to me. I have a nice cool water tank that will make a great home for it.
i have these breeding like mad in my 20L. lay eggs in clear mucus?
yeah, they are eating my crypts, so i think they do eat plants. its just cause they dont have anything else though.

yeah i dont think they are that rare. they are prolific, and almost every LFS near me has them in their plant tanks.
is there a similar looking snail species maybe?

Here are some updated pics. I decided to try out some glosso in the foreground, and let the java moss go wild. You can't see the driftwood anymore.
