Nope... lol The tank is still sitting spinning water in circles! It looks beautiful, and I love hearing the water. Topping off this sucker is a pain in the butt. It evaps a quart of water a day lol.

Snails this week (ceriths, and astreas)

Another picture of the diatoms. They will begin the process of being eliminated this evening when I pick up snails in the next hour =)

I am not a big fan of nerites. I may end up with a few, but I like astreas the best. They thrive in my 29 and I rarely lose them. Also turbos and red banded trochus are big favorites of mine. Red banded is my visual favorite and DANG they are fast if scared lol.

Never liked nerites either. They don't last like the trochus and astreas do. Ceriths are also awesome.

I have trouble with ceriths for some reason. I am going to try and keep them in the 90 gal, but not have any hermits. I also was told a titanium rod, or grounding rod, might help with the snails.... stray electrical currents could also be effecting the nassarius. We will see..

Wow... I realize I kind of stopped updating this a long time ago. LOL I will update with some pics of what happened. Now we are years later and the tank has been broken down, but I will show the beauty of what took place.
