    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    Oh wow. Okay I'll need to change mine ASAP. My instruction booklet did not mention anything about replacing the solution.

    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    Thanks for the quick response. That was for the tank water. I will need to test what you have mentioned. My drop checker is probably about 4 years old. I'll replace the solution and will report back with any results.

    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    I also recall seeing the shrimp cleaning the snail's shell a few weeks ago. I'm starting to think it wasn't cleaning but maybe consuming calcium?

    I finally tested and got results. GH - 120 mg/L KH - 65 mg/L PH is around 7

    The picture doesn't do it justice. It is very beautiful and has good space for the tetras. So happy!!

    Isn't it a great feeling knowing they're going to a better home?

    I brought my neon to his new home yesterday. The transition went really well and the new owner said he was excited to join the school of cardinals. So happy to hear that! Next step is to change the chemistry of this snail and shrimp tank. I'll buy a test kit this week.

    Ghost shrimp or RCS tank

    That's a pretty good deal! I don't have RCS anymore. I had a hitchiker in one of my plants and he ate all of the RCS. That was one hungry killifish! The good news at the time was he ate all of my pest pond snails too!

    Ghost shrimp or RCS tank

    I would be careful with RCS. They breed like crazy. I started out with one male and two female in a 6 g. My tank got infested with them and had to get rid of a lot. In my opinion I would get 3 or 4 ghost shrimp.

    What kind of milk was the one to be thrown out? I'm curious.

    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    Hey everyone. I think I may have found a new home for my lonely neon tetra, Zip. The owner has a 65g aquascaped tank, communal fish only with a 1yr old grouping of about 30 cardinal (neon) tetras, corys, rainbow fish and roseline sharks. Will my neon be okay with a school of cardinals in this tank?

    Thanks! I'll test this weekend when I get a chance. My first priority is to find a new home for Zip. I am getting a lot of responses to my ad.

    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    A lot of people cannot digest dairy. Think about it, milk is meant to feed growing calves, not humans. You would be surprised to hear that there have been tons of studies done on milk, especially the protein in milk (casein), and how it is linked to cancer. Scientists were able to turn cancer...

    Nerite snail shell deteriorating

    I did use Flourish in the past but stopped using it. I didn't realize it goes bad so I'll be throwing that bottle out. So will this be enough to slow down the shell deterioration and/or maybe prevent it from deteriorating?
