Thanks, mnemenoi! I'm planning on adding shrimp to this tank... but I need to wait until my budget is a little more flush. Gotta pay the bills first. I do have some fish flake I can start with in the meantime.
The snails are already populating the place with abandon.
The tank is a month old. I had been waiting for it to cycle before adding more than the snails. If I add fish, I have nowhere else to put them while the shrimp build their numbers. Don't want them eaten until they are numerous enough to fend for themselves.
