Hmmm good thread... I’ve had a variety of cichlids that haven’t worked out the biggest was a severum that killed my Nicaraguan but that was my fault really. I’ve had low activity fish too like plecs but usually not kept them that long. I don’t think I’ve ever accidentally bought a giant which is good as I was prone to impulse buys when I was young

Oh, my word, so many bad choices. :) 2 goldfish in a 3 gallon planter with native catfish. Tinfoil barbs in a planted 55g. A channel catfish and a school of bluegills in a cool-water community tank.
Bluegills are beautiful (from what I have seen) but I love the sounds of that tank! Tinfoil's gosh I almost ended up doing something similar!

Thats actually really interesting, I have an albino Bristlenose and he's constantly out eating algae! Hahaha do you at least like your snails?
My BNP really doesn’t do anything except eat and look cute. B-)

(But I don’t regret getting him)

i think bladder snails are more annoying. i actually enjoy looking at your types of snail
I actually think bladder/pond snails are less annoying to look at.

Because BRH snails are so big, they catch your eye more. They also hang out on the substrate, decor, and plants, while bladder/pond snails hang out on the glass.
