Ehhh, I just leave them but I think it depends if you want a surprise tank or a safe bet on what you have staying consistent in quality/color. I don't have the heart to cull anyone just because they...

I like bladder/pond snails but you do have to be careful with population control, same with trumpet snails. Don't feel bad they do good work! Just keep an eye on those busy guys+girls.

Personally, I like less in my tank. I think if the palm filter would be less intrusive I would go with that but the power head being less than 5 inches is tempting. I'm going to be keeping shrimp so...

No, there is flow there but on top I have a dead spot. In retrospect, I would have gotten a 2215 turned down. I might just add a small palm filter or sponge to the area.

Plant parva how you want it to look because it is very slow to grow, mine has only got maybe three leaves in a year. The bright side is it's very low maintenance and looks great if you plant heavy!
