    Hello, I'm having an issue with my tank at the moment. I'm about to buy some copper test strips but before I do I figured I'd make a post to maybe ask if there are other things I should be testing in my water. I have a fully cycled tank with Japanese rice fish and a bunch of amano and cherry...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello everyone after reading all of the great posts and experiments people have been doing on the forums I've decided to try my own. It all started when I got 2 nerites for my tank about a month ago, unfortunately they were both females and quickly started laying eggs all over my DW. So I...

    Hi everyone, This is my first time posting here and I want to thank you all in advanced for taking the time to read through this lengthy post (sorry, I tend to be long winded) :icon_smil. I really appreciate your feedback. I’m relatively new to the aquascaping hobby but here’s some...

    Nerite Snails are one of the best algae eaters for me. I have 8 of them in my 20 gallon planted tank. My Aunty caught them from their province and gave some to me as she sell them online. I see them crawl all over my tank eating green and brown algae, leftover fishfoods like sinking pellets and...

    1 gallon, unflitered, planted jar. I've had it for about a month now and it's going pretty good. Some of my rotala was melting but I recently added the 6500K light and I've had some new growth on them. Below is my setup and stock. This is my first foray into anything planted. I'm planning on...
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Would it be safe to house 6 horned nerites in a Tupperware container for say a period of 1-2 months temporarily? I could leave it near the window for natural algae... I rather not have to do this, but its an emergency and can't have 8 horned nerites at once in a 17 gallon eating up all the...

    I just love these zebra nerite snails I got three of them and am thinking of getting more. They are great algae eaters along with some bristlenose plecos and algae beware! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv8Redt_6fc

    I can't find these at the LFStores. Which is weird. PetSmart and Petco don't have any in their tanks, which I find rather concerning. WalMart is undergoing an upgrade and doesn't have a fish department until work is complete. Finally, I'm withholding my business from the local mom and pop...

    Hey plant tank folks, I was in the stevens point area petco, and they just got in tiger, and zebra nerite snails for those of you who are interested. Also Otos, bristlenose plecos, and amano shrimp come in pretty regularly. So since i'm there quite a bit, if anybody is interested I just keep...

  11. Tank Journals
    Here's the beginning of it. Have since slightly re-scaped and added a few Nerites. Went to the LFS and asked them about the algae. I'm sure I could have searched on here, but they said to hold back on the ferts, a little less light, and a couple Nerites. Any other ideas? I also am trying a...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently (2 days ago) added 5 zebra nerite snails to my tank (55 Gal.) Ph 7.2 and only one of them ever opened it's trap door and started moving around. This morning I picked up the others off the bottom of the aquarium and noticed that the trap doors had fallen off of 2 of the snails. I...
  13. The Lounge & Introductions
    So as some of you already know. I work at a LFS. We have loads of Nerite snails for salt water aquariums but only carry apple snails or "mystery snails" for freshwater. I've read somewhere online a while back that Nerite's are found spanning fresh to salt water. So I grabbed a handful of...
