The main fish and boss of the tank:
The random platy:
My plecos getting hounded by snails:
My fish that want proper schools (so they school with each-other):
I just recently lost the albino on the right due to bloat but these are plecos i raised from fry:
Random snail (looks to be assassin?) that i found one night in my tank:
I don't have any good tank photos but i'll post one when i get a decent one.

haha ... feel free to save and send me some of those blue ramhorns eventually! xD
Still, I know how that feels. My 40gB was INFESTED with Malaysian trumpet snails which are obviously insanely hard to kill ... they finally stopped being so numerous, tho. Hopefully they'll either die off or you'll find a way to get them under control. It's bound to happen eventually ... hopefully the L260s[ha! I got that right the first time without looking back!] will start really working for their food and not let those pesky snails get it.

crushing snails doesnt work. they plecos will likely pass on the crushed snails, and believe it or not they will live on after being crushed - they are just that hardy. (especially the bladder snails). then they will continue breeding so crushing only kills a very small amount of them and doesn't really stop the problem. I have to manually remove them.
I wanted yoyo loaches for a long time but they are fast and aggressive feeders. they will undoubtedly out-compete my L260 for food which are very timid and slow eaters. That is the reason i am not keeping a group of cories in here too. I LOVE cories but can't keep them because they too will out-eat all my L260.

|kwheeler91||Put a couple yoyo loaches in there and that snail population won't last long. If those pleco eat meat at all you can crush the snails and they will eat the meat. Used to do that for my scarlet badis.|

yeah $&%^&#$ those stupid F'ing snails. I hate them. every night i feed the catfish, they swarm the food so that the catfish barely get a bite out of the snail clump.
I have begun to siphon them out twice a week since i do water changes twice a week now. i use the food to lure them out then siphon out about 100 of them each time. helps control them a little.
Thanks! I hope the L260 get to breeding age some day. they grow very slow.

|demonbreedr16||Dang! haha You've got a nice snail colony going on in there. I love how natural the tank looks and those fish! They're so epic! xD|

cory is still doing well He is bigger now, and I am worried that my angel might eat him since he likes to hover in the water column since he grew bigger.
Also update photo of the L260s. I know i have at least 5 of them left, hopefully all 6 though.

he is as big as flourite

I released the cory fry into the tank two days ago. i saw him last night zipping around on the substrate in the dark. i hope he manages fine.
also saw my L260 plecos eat zucchini for the first time with the albino BNs.

October 12, 2013 (Looks like a cory now!)

Update pics on the cory fry:

pymgy cory fry still doing well!
Also update on the L260 plecos. Update pics! These guys grow much slower than my albino BN juvies. my BNs are about 2"+ a piece and these L260 are still around 1.5" each. i hope they are eating and growing! pics taken at night so that i could catch them out and about on the DW. the fishe's color can appear washed out at night as we all know.
