  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    As the title states, I am thinking of adding 1 MTS to my 5 gallon. It is decently planted with: Monte Carlo Dwarf Hair grass Vallisneria Nano Ludwigia Natans Rotala Rotundifolia Alternanthera Reineckii Mini Sagitattaria However, I already have 3 nerite snails and about 10 RCS shrimp. I...

  3. Low Tech Forum
    5 months into my 120cm long & shallow low tech planted, planaria seems to be picking up a bit. it's currently not a huge problem and i've been feeding 20% less than usual for a months now. but i'd still like to take preemptive measure if possible. since they bury themselves in the substrate most...
  4. WTB/RAOK
    The only cost is shipping at $7.15. I have MTS (not as many), pond snails (many, large and small), Ramshorns (many, large and small). I'm only wanting to send them to one person, so if there's one person who needs a lot of snails, that would be great. I have 16 large size Ramshorns from my big...

  6. Aquascaping
    Hey folks, first post here. I got a 25 gallon 18 inch marineland cube, already hardscaped with around 28 lbs of granite (pics attached). I have the larger rocks raised up two inches by laying a few layers of cut ceiling egg-crate (really cheap alternative to gain some height btw). Tank will...
  7. WTB/RAOK
    EDIT: raok closed- all mts sold Harvested quite a few, tell me how many you want (10, 30, 200, the whole bin!) just pay shipping $7. While supplies last MTS are great for snail eating fish and sand substrates as they sift the sand for you. They don't grow out of control in population unless...
  8. WTB/RAOK
    A nice man bought me a muffin as a RAOK today. It was extra special because I'd just gotten out of a 4-hour long test for grad school (the dreaded GRE)! I want to pay it forward. I'm RAOKing the only things I have: suBwassertang and Malaysian trumpet snails! First winner gets a dense...

  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I know Walstad mentions using black worms in her book. I've been reading mixed reviews. They are hard to find here and I don't wanna make the effort to get some just to have the tank go south. They seem like a better option than MTS for stirring the soil, mostly bc almost every fish will eat...
  11. For Sale/Trade
    I keep mts in all my sand tanks and feed them to my husband's dwarf puffer but they're growing out of control in the 55g because I intentionally over feed the tank to ensure otos get enough food. So time to thin them out! I don't know exactly how many are in the holding cube.. some buried...
  12. For Sale/Trade
    SOLD! Buyer did not want riparium plants so I will make a RAOK thread for them soon! I have a monstrous hastifolia that needs to go, I don't have enough room for it in my 55g without taking away (already limited) swim room for the angelfish. So selling it and giving away some freebies too...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    My MTS have been doing this weird thing recently where they climb up to the waterline, then float around on the underside of the water. My airpump creates a current, so they tend to get spun around too. It's really funny. Bump: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4LVXCtOFjA it looks something...

  14. Substrate
    Should I worry about churning the sand in my tank? It's about 2 inches of inert black sand covered in Dwarf Hair Grass and Pearl Weed. Almost the entire bottom is covered in plants. Should I bother trying to add something like MTS into the tank?
  15. WTB/RAOK
    Looking for some mineralized topsoil to cover roughly 900 cubic inches. LMK what you have!

  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am considering adding MTS to my shrimp tank. It's a step to consider well as once you add one of them, you have them for good. :) Obviously, I hope to keep their population down by not overfeeding. In fact, they might be a perfect indicator of a balanced tank. Too many MTS = you got some...

  19. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi. Malay Trumpet Snails (MTS). Is anyone familiar with these? My MTS are on the gravel surface, on leaves, and on the glass. During the daytime. There are quite a few in the tank now - I'd say 10 or 15, maybe more. If they are running short on food, I need to know how to feed them -...
