Random snail (looks to be assassin?) that i found one night in my tank:

demonbreedr16 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.

FIUPanther305 Assassin snails? Or start a nano puffer tank!

Newman 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.

Newman 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

Newman 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.
