    Can you help me identify these guys?

    So what's up ? Haven't looked at all the forums today but it looks like you need some help figuring out a suitable tank and compatible tank mates. 🧐 Have you posted a thread?

    Who says you can't? I do understand, though. It took me a while to put a second species in my tank due to worry over agression and about doing everything the right way. My stress was agonizing because everything was healthy and I didn't want to fail. I trust that you will figure something...

    At last! Horned Nerites !

    They had huge discounts on gravel vacuums and Seachem Prime. I never imagined they'd have these little sweeties, though. I really like my local fish store, but I can't pass up good savings.

    Bless your lupine ❤️ You keep telling me, but I've never told you... until now... It's not ME, It's YouTube. I can't figure out how to fix it. I've been so ashamed to confess my ignorance. 😔
