The tank is a...

I think MTS are too hard-shelled. I hear they are bad as feeder snails for dwarf puffers. They can break their teeth on MTS :icon_frow

I did not dry start. I just had wads of HC (yes, it's HC not HG) already from my 3gal pictope. It was growing really well there, and instead of trimming with scissors, I grabbed tweezers and pulled...
