Read that nerite snails are for salt water or at least brakish aquariums. I remember corectly in a freshwater brakish aquarium the amount of salinity that the snails need to survive will harm the plants. Thus confused. Do you add anything for the snails?

Nerites can be kept in both salt and freshwater as long as the pH is about 6.7+ They breed in both salt and fresh but the eggs only hatch in salt. In some cases they hatch in fresh but it is rare and the babies sometimes/usually come out deformed. No I do not add anything for them other than the occasional algae tablet which is usually for the amanos and otos.

Sorry, can't do pics tonight and I'm busy through the week so pics until Thurs. or Fri.

Thanks and welcome to the forum! The hairgrass foreground is about a month away from being full so pics up in 1-2 days so you can see the growth. Oh, and after finally modifying my dosing schedule, I finally have slight pearling in the tank (As compared to most of yours where the tank looks as though you have bubble wands stuck in the ground. . .*cough, cough*)

This is getting messed up! I'll try to find out the problem but all I can say is I'll try. Did either of you try a different browser and anyone who can see the pictures, please say so.
