Could be mating, could be sharing food. And just so that people are aware, there are multiple types of assassin snails. Some more aggressive feeders than others. I've kept assassin's for years and...

Really? Straight out of the tap? Seems high, since it shows 500 being the regulatory max.

If it's a larger snail, they actually consume less than their younger counterparts. Could also be that it just doesn't have a taste for diatoms, it happens, all creatures are different, just like...

I wouldn't keep more than two pairs in a 55, one pair for each side. They get pretty aggressive when it comes time to spawn. That's just my opinion.

To add to your point, aside from the money and hassle, there's going to be a time where the pH crashes, spikes or something in between. Gives less room to play with when it comes to the health of...

Those guys have different patterns than I've seen before. I like them. If you've got the pairs already you might want to find another home for that last one. Wouldn't want him getting picked on by...

It's not much of specific question, just trying to get a general idea of what others have their systems at and what they keep safely in them.

There's really no point in separating at this point, if there was any sickness it's already been transferred to that tank. Just wait it out and see what happens and treat accordingly if need be.

My guess, too much light, and not enough plants to compete with the algae. Solution, add some stem plants, reduce lighting to 7 or 8 hours. Once algae is losing the fight, add some root plants, and...

I trim the roots of my plants every time I move or replant them, in different tanks or just rescape. Never an issue. My crypts always take over tanks.

Anubais are very slow growers. If there are any damaged leaves, remove them and allow for new growth. It takes awhile for them to establish themselves to rock or driftwood. They are very hardy...

I would say 5-6 inches max but average about 3.5 to 4 being that small they are primarily algae eaters. Make sure you substitute with blanched zucchini or something, also make sure you have driftwood...

In my experience it doesn't matter too much. Naturally the bulbs kind of just float and settle, then start to grow roots. I wouldn't bury a bulb until it starts to show growth, once it shows growth,...
