    How do I get rid of wall algae?

    There's been algae on the tank walls for a while now. I can't scrub it off. I have the light on for seven hours each day. It's a planted tank. I've had algae on decor and plants too but that's been easier to wipe off. I have a snail and platies that sometimes pick at the algae. I don't want to...

    I've already tried all the basic recommendations

    I have algae on the walls, decorations, and live plants. I've already tried wiping off the algae, but it wouldn't come off. I have the light on for 7 hours a day. I do regular water changes. I have a snail and some fish that like to pick at the algae. I have a 20 gallon so I can't get any big...

    Poisonous root tabs?

    I recently added api root tabs to my tank. Now my snail is dead. I am testing the ammonia and will post results when finished. Is it possible that the root tabs killed it?

    Do Bladder Snails lay eggs out of the water?

    I seem to have found a clutch of Bladder Snail eggs that are out of the water. I have seen Bladder Snails avoid the air but this must be an inch off the water surface... What are your opinions?

    Product to kill snails in a tank

    Before anyone freaks out, no I'm not thinking about any copper based, or salts to kill off snails. I'm already aware of benefits of snails and MANY methods of getting rid of them or taming them by feeding less or vacuuming more often for less foods for an outbreak. I'm not looking for any other...

    Too many assassin snails

    Alright. My assassins bred like crazy even though I've been told they were slow breeders and it was unlikely to breed from just a random two since you can't Sex them. Where can I get rid of some?! I just moved the other adult into a different tank to stop the breeding.

    Snail question,

    Hi, so during setup of my 29 gallon I decided to add snails, and got 3. A nerite, a mystery, and an assassin. I'll come clean and admit I had no idea that the assassin honors its name, I just thought it looked cool. I'm glad he didn't starve, because I have no infestation and I suppose he was...

    Nerite snail white rim?!

    I've had two nerite snails for over a year now, they're great at their job. No problems. I'm concerned that one has recently developed this white rim between it's shell and body. Do I need to be concerned?! I've attached a couple of photos. Nothing has changed in the tank. Levels appear fine...

    Picked up Free Tank, Free Fish

    So I was browsing the marketplace yesterday and came upon an ad for free fish tanks. I, of course, hopped on it. Just got home after picking it up and setting it up. It turns out, she still had the fish, but would have no tanknonce I left with the last one. She offered the fish as well. I...

    A bit morbid

    So this is probably a bit morbid but I use my dead snails as a decoration in my tank. I love snail shells so if one happens to die I clean it out and put the shell back into my tank. Am I alone in this?

    My tank has been overrun by snails... help!

    Hey you guys! So, my tank is home to several snails. I bought floating plants a month ago and I believe they brought pest snails with them. I am extremely upset and out of options when it comes to disposing of them. I seriously have an endless amount, 2-3 dozen of these guys and they just keep...
