  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Just set up this 22 gallon two weeks ago. I got all tissue culture plants except for two, and of course, this morning I saw a (smallish) pond snail (maybe bladder snail) on the glass. I pulled him out, but this evening I just found 3 more tiny little babies. So, how screwed am I? Is there any...

    Ohh, the plague! 🐌🐌🐌 😲 Snail plague in the aquarium? There is nothing worse than seeing your aquarium being taken over and even destroyed some plants by snails multiplying like mad! (worse than rabbits 🐇 🙈) Don't say we didn't warn you 😃 Our article this week is all about these little...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently set up a 20 gal tank with substrate and a few plants attached to driftwood. It’s been about 2-3 weeks now and I just noticed snails in my tank!! I’m still working on cycling so the conditions aren’t perfect (no fish yet, just plants/driftwood/water/and now snails). I’m not sure what...
  4. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have a nicely set up five gallon tank with 3 mollys and one small snail the levels in the tank are perfect and i just did a 30% water change on monday to prep for my spring break. i’m going home for 9 days and have done some research on vacation feeding “bricks” (i don’t remember what they are...

    We have all experienced pest snails at some stage. Some people don't mind them but if you are one of the people that, like us, would rather remove these uninvited guests, have a read at our recent blog article on the topic. If you have any further advice on removing these pests, we would love to...

    I have a dorm room fish tank that I alone take care of. It is a five gallon tank with a standard filter, an under gravel filter that had a built in bubbler and a heater that keeps it around 80 degrees. after winter break I decided to restock my then empty tank with 3 mollys 2 Siamese algae...

    These guys came in with some plants. Don’t have any fish yet. Are they pests? Will pearl Danio’s or Chili Rasboas eat them or their eggs? thanks!
  9. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    So I have been trying to raise my calcium and kh levels in my 55g fish, snail, and planted tank. I have actually tried a bunch of things. I was doing water changes every two weeks. I have now changed it to once a week to try and help replenish the calcium mostly for snails and plants are doing...
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Recently, I’ve seen a lot of posts on YouTube and other platforms about how to get rid of things such as planarias pond snails, scuds, you name it. So why are these creatures hated? Are they destructive to the tank or is it just a aesthetic thing(The look of a bunch of snails crawling by...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    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...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Perhaps a bit of an odd question, but has anyone tried to selectively breed bladder snails or know anything about their genetics? Since they're a pest snail there's not a whole lot of information on breeding them (plenty of getting rid of them though) and I'm pretty curious about doing some...

    My 40g tall tank is starting to settle in nicely. The initial diatom bloom has gone, and algae is now starting to settle down as the tank is balancing out. But, I have snails which came in with one of the plant orders (I won't mention the vendor, but I'm a little irritated about that). Anyway...
  14. Algae
    Hi everyone! Recently I’ve notice some weird black particles sitting on the rocks and plants in my tank and I’m not 100% sure what they are. They aren’t growing on / attached to anything because if I swirl the water they come off and float around. I don’t have any animals other than two bladder...
  15. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I would like to add some type of snail to my shrimp tank. Ive done a good amount of research on my own but i think it would be useful tog get some opinions of people who have seen the tank. I attached a picture of my shrimp tank, it is heavily carpeted with hygrophilia polysperma, i know they...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So yesterday I was on a run and found these plants in a creek near my house that were totally infested with snails(pictured). I have a new walstad tank (pictured) with soil substrate, 13 watt lights, and hovers around 75-80 degrees. I want originally was going to add Malaysian trumpet snails...
  17. Equipment
    Snails, parasites, diseases--there are plenty of reasons to try and keep each tank contained from other tanks. I recently discovered hydra in 3 of my 4 nano tanks; the last remaining one is least maintenance due to the shrimp breeding colony that lives there, but you can understand why I...

    Today I received an online order of 10 assassin snails (to be distributed among our various tanks to help with pest snail problems), and a dozen rummynose tetras. Without thinking I tossed both snails and tetras into our 55 g QT tank. Now my husband and I are scratching our heads and wondering...
  19. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello. As the title suggests I just came home to 6 dead glowlight tetras and 2 very discolored pearl gouramis after introducing some malaysian trumpet snails. They were introduced directly from transport to the tank a couple of hours ago. I immediately picked the snails out and quarantined them...
