  1. Fish
    I'm currently in the middle of rescaping my tank. I have minimal plants & lighting in a 30G while I wait for a shipment. I currently have, among other things, 3 otos and a (pond?) snail. They like to usually stick together, but when I try to feed the otos lettuce, the snail gorges on it. Also...
  2. Fish
    I currently set up a 30 gallon planted aquarium. With baby tears, wisteria, and java moss. I have 5 large yellow snail and 2 neon tetras. The others dies :(. I am ready to add more fish but don't know what to get. I don't want any aggressive fish or fish that harass snails. Ps do I need to...

    Orange Posso prefered but open to other species, please PM with a pic and price if you have any available. Looking for 3 or so, will probably need a heat pack. Thanks!

    WOW! :icon_eek: I was battling GSA on my Anibus, so I picked up one of these little guys and in one day he's cleaned off two of the leaves that were so totally covered in GSA they had turned black. Great addition to the tank! Get one if you can!
  6. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    First off, I'd like to say I'm going to have to order this little guy online since my LPS doesn't carry them - or so I think. 1- I had a nerite snail and two mystery snails in my 10 gallon and they worked wonderful algae wise. Sadly, my power head and filter sucked the daylight out of them...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    My last two inquiries turned out to be plain ole boring pond snails... and these little guys look nothing like the last two (the last two did look somewhat similar to each other.) These photos are of just one, but i have three I've found so far(my water change seems to have stirred them up)...

    WHAT IS THE BEST AND MOST COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO SHIP MALAYSIAN TRUMPET SNAILS?:help:

    Got some pictures of my assassin snail killing a nice looking shrimp. I liked the shrimp, kinda bummed that it got taken down, but its also pretty cool that it happened. The shrimp was still moving when I took the pictures.

    Hi all and welcome to the party!!! I have a 110 gallon tank with a bunch of malaysian trumpet snails. I am looking for a good addition to the tank to control (not eliminate) these guys. Any Ideas will be considered and appreciated. I currently have the following in the tank: 2 spotted...

    Well I'd like to put my old one gallon tank to use. I've never had a planted tank before but would like to try one with some shrimp and maybe a snail. Do i need a special kind of substrate or will sand be fine? How many shrimp can I have in there and what are some good small begginer plants...

    I originally put 3 MTSs in the betta bowl, within 2 months there are dozens of them. My water is soft and a little bit acidic. I kind of worry how they'll get enough calcium from the water. So I put some seashells and hope they would be fine. Recently I though one of the big ones has some kind...

    Hey Everyone! I am looking to keep record of my newly rediscovered love for aquariums. I will be updating you along the way with new plants and lots of awesome photos. The goal with this tank was to challenge the idea of planted aquariums by contrasting the natural curves of driftwood and...
  15. Planted Nano Tanks
    I have a small, low tech, filterless, heavily planted 5 gallon tank and I would like to know if I should add some snails (MTS for substrate, and/or ramshorns for algae + scavenging...or even some tadpole snails). I currently have no cleaner crew in the tank (shrimps were picked to death by the...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I know that there has been controversy on whether assassin snails eat shrimp or not. Well, I am here to tell you that they DO!:icon_cry: I received 8 assassin snails yesterday and I put them in my red cherry shrimp tank. This is a breeder tank and it has over 150 shrimp. I have just as much...

    hello, i've got heaps of snails in my juvinile murray cod tank and they multiply like crazy (i think they came in on some plants). i've noticed lots of transparent eggs on plants and some on the glass. so far they've kept my tank algae free but since there multiplying at such a high rate will...
