    Everything has been okay. I nearly gave up on aquarium keeping all together a little while ago, though. SO SICK OF THE CATS!! Good thing no one replied to my hastily written ad on Kijiji. Haha!

    I am in the works of setting up the ol' 30 gallon for a spawn tank to try my hand at Betta Breeding. Should be ordering a few Bettas off Aquabid in the near future. I am going to be VERY picky, but I am in Canada, so my options will be pretty limited.

    How have you been? Hows all your stuff going?

    Understandable. But I will say that I see my snails more than my Oto. LOL I might only see the Oto once a week and I spend the rest of the time wondering if its dead.

    Honestly, I did not know there were different species until I read that in your thread. So I'll be of no use to you. Still, I think ramshorn snails are a very good option. I had some algae in my 3g that nothing was working on. It was driving me a little batty. I tossed two ramshorns in and they had it cleaned up in no time. I don't worry about them overrunning the tank because biology dictates there will only be as many as food allows for. So if I do my part and let them do theirs, we should get along just fine. I've seen them on my plants eating algae off the leaves but they've not harmed any of the plants themselves. Win/win as far as I'm concerned and they're a little more sturdy than otos. Though I DO have an Oto in the tank as well that I rarely see. LOL

    Its not good, and its not acceptable since I PAID for priority so it wouldn't sit over the weekend. *grrrrrr* Hopefully it doesn't sit in the freezing cold all weekend.

    Mailed it Tues morning. Delivery is supposed to take no more than three days. If you don't get today, you had BETTER get it tomorrow (and you should complain if anything is damanged or dead since it took them too long).

    The cories are the "garbage crew". It's always good to have a bottom feeder of some kind to eat all the food that the betta misses. Cory catfish or kuhli loaches are great for this. For algae, I always hear that nerite snails are the best thing to get, though I've yet to try them out. Ramshorns and mystery snails don't seem to have done much for me though on the algae front.

    I meant it about sending you some easy, low-light plants. If you send me your address, I'll pop some of my water sprite, miro, and hornwort in the mail.

    Sounds like a pretty good plan to me. I hope it works well!
