  1. Algae
    There are probably posts about this already but I couldn't find any! I have tanks between 8-16 gallons. What are some good algae eaters? I have lots of plants and I don't want them eaten. So far I have ramshorn snails and amano shrimp, what are some other goods species? I want something for the...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Started a new tank last week, I bought some new plants and moved some plants from another tank (which has ramshorn snails). Can anyone tell if these snails are pest snails or ramshorn snails, I've heard something about them being pest snails if they're leaning?:|
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hey guys! I've had blue leopard ramshorns in my 3 gal. betta tank for about half a year now, love the little dudes, but I recently changed the substrate from dirted Seachem-brand onyx sand to Fluval Stratum (mostly for the color and ease of planting) and their pretty shells have turned a chalky...

    I think I need to add calcium. My shrimp have slowly been losing color over time, and my ramshorns aren't as prolific as they should be. I tried adding an eggshell- they ate the protein off of it and then left it alone. Dunno if it's contributing any calcium to the aquarium... I give the...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have ramshorn snails and columbian ramshorn snails. Since the introduction of the columbian ramshorns, I've noticed little things crawling on some of the snails. I figured they were baby ramshorns, but now I'm so sure. Please help ID!
  6. Oregon
    I got some pink ramshorn snails from a guy in Albany around Thanksgiving. They're breeding like crazy, so I thought I'd share the wealth. Local pickup/meetup in Portland only. I can do around five small snails per person for the first 3 folks that reply. They seem to get pinker as they get...
  7. Tank Journals
    New tank, new journal, new journey! Sadly a month ago I had to replace my 11 gallon True Aqua I've had for over a year! It developed a crack on the bottom from a hectic move :icon_sad: Long story short I picked up an aquamaster from my LFS. I really wanted to get rimless curved glass tank...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi everyone, I need help reducing the population of mini-ramshorn snails in my 600L planted aquarium. I accidentally introduced them and they are having a great old time in my tank. They are the very small ones (1-2mm). While I admit that they haven't actually done anything bad (they seem to...

    Can Ramshorns or Pond snails dig up though sand if they get buried? Also what would be the best way to add sand, over another substrate, in an already flooded tank? Thanks
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a good amount of Ramshorn/MTS snails in a 10G heavily planted tank. Recently, last day or so, most seem to just be laying on their side not moving, moving a very little, or just sitting still. Current inhabitants are RCS (adults, Juvs, Babies), Assassin Snails (Adults, Juvies, Eggs), MTS...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently got a black ramshorn snail, which eventually turned to 10, then 20, and now I have several. I've decided to breed them for hobby and I have a gourami that eats them as well. They are colors such as black, leopard, and a very light brown.. If I decided to raise these, would people be...
