    Zero ammonia, nitrate and nitrites?

    Snail ID

    Can someone tell me what this snail is? It appeared in my tank two weeks ago quite a bit smaller. Apparently there must be more because I think those are eggs under it?

    Who said assassin snails won't eat my shrimp??

    Sad thing is, I bought this snail to help keep the other snails population in check. I've never actually seen it on another snail

    Who said assassin snails won't eat my shrimp??

    Unknown fish in my Tank

    I bought some fry food at the pet store and he seems to eat it right up. Funny watching him stalk up to a small speck and dart at it.
