Yeah I figure my time is ticking with the cae. I've had him for two years now and he's 3 inches long. I will try some ramshorns or nerites first I think. Thanks all

Water Sprite and Brazilian penny-wort have done well in my low tech set up. Dwarf water lettuce doesn't do as well (turns yellow and is pale) but explodes under high light.
