so will my shrimp!

and my DUMB betta ignored them till the no planera hit them ... then the betta was like.. 'look food' ... he got taken out while meds were in the tank ... dumb betta.

and i DO NOT feed much at all... they came as hitch hikers.. and it's not a big problem but they creep me out.

laqu how many... water changes? 24 hours of CARBON and WC okay?

.. and yes, if you know me... you know this means at least one snail has died...


separate tank during meds, alge wafers, water changes, plants in 'temp' tank...
12 hours of purigen.. so i think okay should be fine... put them in.. one right to top.. grabbed him out, other happy so i left him ... hour later on side... took him out, put him in clean water (fingers crossed)

on the bright side i don't have a pond snail problem .. never have..

on the down side, i also don't have as many nerites as i want!

He's asking about the medication, not the worm :p.

Yes. A series of water changes will do well.

ChadRamsey i would imagine that a series or masive WC would do the trick.
