Try blue rams horns... Just as good as the reds but prettier.
Very observant aokashi... Thats one of the benefits of the pond snails. Not sure if it's due to their shell design or what but they often hang on the surface to feast on the bacteria of scum if you don't have enough surface agitation.
Sonicpath gave away some really pretty leopard print pond snails last week.
Mts normally can get to the top along the glass and even beneath the floaters only to take a dive back down to the substrate. If mts are dying on you, it might be more due to being a new tank as there may not be sufficient food detris in the substrate yet. Another problem might be nitrates. I can dig up some older ones for you if u wanted to try them again dan.

|aokashi||i have ramshorn too... but I found pond snails the only ones to eat surface scum and wierd stuff XD|

|Monster Fish||I can use some more to clean up my rili tank. In fact, I would rather keep them than MTS. The MTS are a gamble with me. They either thrive or slowly die off.|

|Monster Fish||Instead of chucking them, why don't you give some to me?|

|aokashi||I like to "cycle" with snails. if you have any pond snails, I find they eat most of the wierd gunk that might build up.|

|acitydweller||If you haven't already, raise the temp to 78 to accelerate the lifecycle.|

|Monster Fish||I think to prevent any cross-contamination, go with a fresh batch of media. Also if you want to speed up your cycle, look for products containing Nitrospira bacteria only.|

|Monster Fish||Yup. Though according to the article, water changes won't do much. The best course of action is to be patient and wait for all of them to die off.|

The stuff in the filter looks like dead bacteria.
Yep. They produce ammonia so keep on monitoring that.
|10-09-2012 11:09 PM|
Sounds like heterotrophic bacteria.

|Congee||Do you happen to have any branches or driftwood or anything in there? I had this problem before where I am guessing the SAP did not dry out or something was coming out of my branches. I let my ottos and snails take care of it and they were at it for a few weeks before there weren't anymore.|
