I'm still around. My tank is doing fine. Getting ready to redo it with some new driftwood.

It has been a long time since I have been posting. I need to get back here more often. I work 60-70hrs a week now so that is killing my time

I just redid my tank last weekend. I had an algae and snail break out that I couldn't get under control. Ended up tearing the whole thing down and setting it back up. Had to throw away tons of plants

Anyone who could help a brother out with some snail free plants would be appreciated

Glad I have tons of topsoil and supplies!

Get a nano tank with dwarf puffers and stick um in your main tank everytime your snail infestation gets to be too much. Snails will be gone within a few days.

That is a bummer on the tear down and restart.

I have too many snails to provide you with plants. But would if you didn't mind the snail when ever I do a trim.

Awesome thread. Sorry about the tear down and restart. The dwarf puffers are great for snail control. I have to actually replenish my snails atleast once a month or they start fighting each other for food. They haven't went after my nerites that I have noticed.
To bad I didn't know about a month ago you wanted plants I gave away a great plant package.
Good luck on your restart.
