I've always wanted amanos. Maybe I'll try to get some from the same place I got the Nerites. I was going to do a large buy off one of the online stores but I couldn't afford the large shipping...

Only a beginner in the planted tanks, I suppose. And thank you so much. I woke up this morning and just watched my fish swimming around the plants. I really do wish that I had trimmed them back...

It's turned out well, that's for sure. It seems to be doing alright without any artificial light. The only minus is the way the curve of the glass creates blind spots in the tank. That's part of the...

I was more curious if it was a possibility. It'd be nice to take a bath with water that doesn't have chlorine in it as my skin doesn't like the stuff too much but it's nothing I can't deal with.

Strange question here... Any input? (water conditioner)

I guess you could say that I am bored.

I think it depends on several things. Including the KIND of algae in your tank and if the nerties can find a different source of food or not. Trapdoors and nerites don't eat the same kinds of algae...
