    Little update on my tank

    Tried to get a few videos of my tank, unfortunately the cories were nowhere to be seen so its mainly a video of my frogs and snails hanging out at the top! Tank has been set up for 2 months and I'm happy with how it's going although will be happier when the plants grow in a bit more.

    Very Soft Water Snail Suggestions

    Since I started raising fish again a few years ago I have been very careful to keep disease and pestilence out of my aquariums. The one detrimental aspect of this tight control is I have never gotten any beneficial hitchhikers from plant additions. I would like to make my aquariums more...

    Nerite Snails - Feeding & Calcium Requirements?

    Wow. Just watched GBR attack and eat a snail.

    The snail had been attached to the glass, let go of the glass, was floating in the water, and then the ram attacked it so fast I thought I was watching a tv show. LOL He just ripped the snail right out of the shell. Well, I guess that's why I don't have a snail infestation. :)

    Mystery Snail Problem Help!

    What do you do when you suddenly have 45 Gold Mystery Snails? Thankfully I only let one clutch of eggs hatch but as cool as they are, they are dirty! Not worth selling, does anyone know if they could survive in a canal or lake? I live in South Florida so it doesn't get too cold.
