Yes, please do resize, I don't like it when I have to use a horizontal scroll bar in a web browser, even when my screen resolution is already WXGA+

Though the large picture does make your Duckweed problem very evident.

To eliminate the snails, you'll likely have to do it manually...try using snail traps (i.e. a capped film container with some food in it. The cap will have a hole small enough for only the snails to enter). I'm not sure how effective this might be, because you'll most likely end up trapping some shrimp too.

Hi and welcome,

Your plants are green and green is good I also like your animals they look good.

You can probably edit then resize the pictures.

Some members have put a piece of lettus in the tank and when the snails cover it the lettus is jsut removed with the snails. You should also cut back on the feeding, this will restrict snail size and reproduction.
