  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am trying to decide on the best bottom feeder/eco-cleaner for my glass pico tank. It is a 2g cube with a relatively large Amazon sword planted in SeaChem onyx sand, and a small school of Neons. No filtration. Fish & plant are as happy and healthy as they can be. It's remarkably simple and...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    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...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Lfs said it is a mystery snail but it looks like a nerite more to me. Could someone help me ID it? I'm new to the forum and hope the picture attachments show up correctly. Thank you in advance!
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Recently, my wild-caught Olive Nerites have been laying eggs like crazy. I know my tank is freshwater, so how could this be happening? I heard they only reperduce in brackish or salty water. They were acclimated from a brackish marina near where I live, where they have a steady population about...

  9. 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 -...
  10. WTB/RAOK
    I've finally been able to get plants to thrive in one of my tanks and I want to thank this awesome community by giving back. The main focus of this RAOK is going to be Dwarf Water Lettuce (sandwich bag full) and snails (Ramshorn and/or Malaysian Trumpet - small/babyish sized). I know it's not...
  11. WTB/RAOK
    looking for assassin snails. I live in UT so i'd be willing to pay for a heat pack as well. looking for anywhere from 5-10. most places ive found online either charge WAY too much for shipping, or are only placing orders for 20+ snails.
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So, I've done it before, though I only had twelve babies, and nine survived. Their now four months old and are really healthy. But now, two of my females have had egg sacks, tthe first hatched, and the second is now, and I already have 47 of the little guys!!! And there's way more in the tank...
  13. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have seven apple snails throughout my tanks, and have found out only one is female! How often can she mate and produce eggs? So far she laid a clutch on the second and I found another one today. Can she keep doing this or will it hurt her? Should I seperate? Also, how fast do young grow? Is it...
  14. Substrate
    Just got some assassin snails and preparing for them I decided to dump some pond snails in my tank with black diamond. It's weird, right away it would seem painful to the pond snails. I'd drop one in and for a couple of seconds he would freak out, flip out, then after about 3 seconds he could...
  15. Fish
    Which of these 3 would be best for a 5 or 8 gallon setup? I'm pretty sure I know the answers, but I just want confirmation and other opinions. Otocinclus - would love to get one, but I guess they live in groups and are quite sensitive. Nerite Snail - had one before. Loved it's algae consuming...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got a mystery snail a couple of weeks ago. I put it in my 5 gallon tank with my betta, but my betta attacked it (I think he bit off some of its eye stalk thing), so I put my snail in a separate 1 gallon tank with some plants I had in quarantine, and it seemed happy. But then it stopped eating...
  17. 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...

    I have a bucket filled with Ramshorns and Malaysian Trumpet Snails. I have removed them from one of the tanks that I have them in. They have become competition for my cories and are more than my Skunk Loaches, in another tank, can eat. We cannot get our Puffer fishes until we move (ran out of...
  19. Plants
    I was wondering if it would be a no-no to bath my new plants I got from the LFS, which has a huge pond snail problem, in a concentration of Had-A-Snail before rinsing thoroughly and putting in my fish tank. Thing is, is that I have shrimp in my tank. Would it not hurt the shrimp as long as I...
