I just got my Spec V going good and got my first round of shrimp babies. Now you're making me want the Dennerle tank!

Looks like a great tank you have going!

Thanks, these have been a lot of fun but I found planaria in both of them now, surely a result of me moving a plant from one tank to the other. So they'll both get treatments here soon and all the snails will die, and I'll probably have a mini cycle from it all. Hopefully at least the plants will be unfazed and I can catch some of the shrimp out first.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

Ouch. I've been fortunate with no diseases in any of my 3 tanks so far(knocks on wood). Surely there's gotta be a way to treat your tank without harming everything else? Can't be easy though I bet.

I'm not aware of one. These are tough, tough life forms. Anything that eradicates them will have some impact on other inverts, as far as I'm aware. But I'll have them where I want them by the new year, with any luck.
