Mission one: eliminate all pest snails
Mission one status: FAILED

After a month of repeated manual removal, i now feel confident that it is not possible to remove pest snails from this tank. so **** 'em. I have better things to do.

Recently i have started to raise some more pleco fry in a breeder net since my BN pair bred.

The planted idea didn't work because my sulawesis ate right through the planted part of it. on the plus side now i have a lot of tylo babies in the tank. on the negative side I am pretty much left with doing a hardscape for this tank.
At least the plecos will appreciate the DW. lots of DW. I'll probably work on the re-scape during winter break.

(I am planning on buying a lot of DW and adding in some dried leaves.)
