Thanks msnikki, I think that is basically what I have but I will look into it more! Right now I have 400 of the other type. They stay frozen fro about 18 hours, but "cool" for about 2 days.

Nerite snails will clean green spot algae off of glass and leaves. They're pretty good at maintaining a reasonable level of green spot in a tank, not so good at eliminating an algaepocalyse.

ETA: I say that they're not good for eliminating a serious problem because while you could buy a whole ton of the things and let them go to work, you'd then be stuck with a bunch of snails with an inadequate food supply.

I will see what the lists have on them next week! Going away for the weekend back up to New England
You've been holding out on us, then! There's only one Tylo species listed on your site, and I've been toying with the idea of getting some, but keep waiting to see if anything else pops up :P ... I'm gearing up for some in(vert)sanity this summer (I just made that up on the spot, but wouldn't it be a great name for an invert convention?) and need to get me some critters I won't find in the lfs.

Yippee! I'm going to have to get me some nerites. Do they breed like rabbits though?

No, they won't reproduce in a freshwater tank at all. Apparently you can get larvae from time to time with them, but they won't survive because they require brackish/saltwater to continue growing. A certain seller of invertebrates has them at very reasonable prices... Hrm, who could that be???

Asian Rummynose - sawbwa reslendens?

they like harder water which is perfect where i am in central nys.

would need at least as many females as males though...

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. MW

here is a write up on them:

they can be aggressive towards their own when there are not enough females around - is this your experience?

I can certainly get pencils, but often they come in as mixed species with NEAT contaminant fish (as in, not the ones I ordered but often neat variations).

That is teh key part, I don't recommend stocking more than one nerite per 5-10g of tank space for longevity of hte snail.

Love it! I don't list them because tehy ALWAYS come in with leeches which takes me forever to eradicate. I have yellow antennae, white spot, yellow fleck, and yellow that I have been hording and growing out.

Nope, they just lay sesame seed shaped/sized eggs which can often hatch though the veligers require varying levels of salinity in order to turn into snails.

The only way to get both sexes upon import is to buy them so young they are not sexable. I havve done this in the past and ended up with about 60% female to male ratio, which is perfect for a tank. I can certainly see if htey are on the list again. Beautiful little fish!

Definitely will be getting those. So far, I KNOW I am going to order otocinclus, dario daroi, clown killies, microcrabs, more chillis (I keep them in stock) and likely also more habrosus or pygmaeus, maybe more CPD's or somethign like more kubotai, possibly some apisto cacs, and probably some pencil fish (a personal favorite of mine). I am not sure what else as I will see what the lists have!
