Bummer about the snails! I hate getting attached then realizing that something won't work in your tank (went through that with a paradise fish)
Where are your currently stationed? If you don't mind me asking, my husband is currently active as well. Best of luck!

@Conrad283 haha you know i never really thought of that..i always just thought he looked like an Elephant lol.

|GMYukonon24s||Welcome to the forum. Nice job on your tank. I'm also a fan of the Hillstream loaches.|

guess i should probably tell you guys whats in here...so here it is
Breeding pair of High Fin Electric Blue Rams
x7 Rummy Nose Tetra
3 chocolate Rabbit Snails
1 Orange Rabbit Snail
2 Assassin snails
i LOVE SNAILS!
2 Apple Snails(they were the first thing i had in my tank and i just dont have the heart to let them go..there huge now..about golfball size
1 Hillstream Loach
Blood Stargrass (Didiplis Diandra)
Ludwigia Scarlet Fire
Vesuvius Sword Plant
Dwarf Narrow Leaf Sagittaria
Light(Aquaticlife 20" T-5) ~36wat
Filter(Zoomed 501 Canister Filter) *i dont really like this filter...at all dont get it i love Canister filters but these was just not one that i would recommend..i think ill be going with a Fluval model..
I have some rocks in there that i got on Ebay..a little on the expensive side but well worth it for there looks
Seiryu Stones its a Japanese Slate.
I think thats about it...
I know you guys are probably scared that this tank is over loaded..and wile i would normally agree you have to know that i spend hours a day with my tank...and thats not an exaggeration..between the daily water checks PH GH KH Ammonia Nitrate Nitrite...general maintenance..and then just observing the tank and all my fish..just being able to say that you watch your fish for hours a day and know when the slightest change in character is taking place says alot..
plus if you look at the pictures you can see that my Rummy's have VERY bright red noses..and my LF EBR are doing very well..and have already spawned twice in my tank. so i hope that puts to rest any idea of poor quality in my tank..if it doesnt i will gladly listen..and thank you for reading my post/rant
