    Poor Water Sprite

    Now that little Nugget has settled in, he feels like I have not been feeding enough. Took matters into his own foot and snacked on my water sprite. Woke up to this. Guess it is a good thing I am getting some more water sprite in there.

    Will Other Fish Eat my Mystery snails' Eggs???

    I bought some mystery snails for my new tank because they are excellent cleaners since they like to munch on the left over food on top of my substrate.

    Mystery snail and African Dwarf Frogs

    Recently I got a Mystery snail for my 10 gallon tank and i'm wanting to add something a little more lively with it. I'm looking into African Dwarf frogs but i'm worried they might think that his antenna or snorkel is food. Does anyone have any experience with keeping these two in the same tank?
