Mts!

So when you see the letters MTS - which do you automatically think of?

Malaysian Trumpet Snail
Mineralized Top Soil
Multiple Tank Syndrome

In this case, I immediately thought "Multiple Tank Syndrome" --and was prepared to enable/cheer you on!

That is what I usually think of, unless the thread title is something like "How to make MTS" or "Should I introduce MTS to my tank?"

I always think of the snails, cause I have a ton of them. Secondly I would think of multiple tank syndrome. I never think of mineralized top soil and if that's what it's referring to I have to sit there and think about it for a minute before I "get" it.

For me it's snails.
I have dwarf puffers so that would be why.

I think multiple tank syndrome & then snail. The top soil is also last on my list.

Snails for me, MTS have been part of my aquariums since the start, yet I have never used topsoil for plants, nor have I ever even thought of considering my tank collections a syndrom, which makes it sounds like some sort of disease, and I hardly think of it like that.

Snail > soil > tank

I someone times get confused when I read something like "Letting my MTS dry out a few more times" It makes me wonder what sail could survive it the first time, lol.

The tank syndrom. Then the snails. Skip the dirt.
