yea, they are harmless. fish/shrimp/snail food. you are overfeeding or leaving uneaten food too long but they are totally natural and completely harmless, and are fun to watch

Thanks for advise

Thanks for the advice. I actually don't feed anything in the tank. All I have in there are snails and I don't give them anything. The only thing I may give too much of is light which I forget to turn off sometimes. It's doing wonders for the vegetation though!

Great idea

The only problem with adding a fish is I don't have a filter or a heater. I've been debating about adding a tiny frog; would get filter then. Do they eat them?

I don't know maybe. honestly they are not a problem, but its hard for sloooow moving snails to get to them. fish are much faster, I have no idea about a frog. a beta would eat them, bettas do not require filters or heaters sometimes.

Does your house get really cold at all? I keep mine ~70 and half of my tanks are unheated; guppies and such don't really mind.

Also, with sufficient plants I don't really run filters either, just powerheads with small foam prefilters to keep water circulating.

Hey, thanks for the advice...that's good to know. I do have a small water circulator that I turn on from time to time when it looks like the water is getting too stagnant. Anything else besides Guppies? I would only put in a small quantity and I know some fish need to be put in small schools.
