    Dragged Back Into The Hobby

    10 Gallon Tank

    I'm preparing to restart my 10 gallon. It's cycled and houses two mystery snails. What would you put in the tank? It's got sand, and is kept at about 78degrees. If this was your tank, what would go in it?

    Could Kick Myself!

    Last week, I got a new plant. I ran it under the tap for a few seconds. Like a quick rinse if anything. Today, I scooped some water out so I could isolate a snail I had, and I was checking it out with a flashlight and saw something moving in the water. Imagine a baby snail. Imagine the size of...
