My mom has been bugging me for a birthday list, so I told her if she wanted to get me something to get me the puffers for an early bday present. lol so she said YES! :) I just bought some "feeder" shrimp. They were selling them a dozen for 3.99 so I did that to kinda eat whatever they wanted that was in the tank. and I got some snails for free at the LFS. They have been going crazy on the glass and a few plants. I purposely didnt clean the back or sides of the tank of diatom after the photo was taken. There are like 15 pond snails in there I believe. Hoping they lay eggs at least once before I get the fish so there is some snails to snack on as a housewarming present for them. Hoping to get the puffers this saturday or next. so more picturse are on the way. :)

Any idea with the plants or are they good? I wanted to kinda make a jungle but not cluttered. Hoping when the hair grass or micro grows out it will look much better.

my tank got cluttered quickly, but then again, I'm just working with a 10gallon. I wish I had a 40+ gallon tank for my little ones!

I mentioned it in another thread, but the snails won't last long, at all. Not only will they hunt/kill all the little ones, but they're work on the big ones.

My tank just had an ammonia spike from too many half eaten snails. The puffs would gang up on the big snails (twice their size!) and kill them, but only eat as far as they could get in the shells. They got a massive water change and all the dead snails picked out. They're happy as can be now!


I can't wait for your pics!

It seems that I've gotten most of the LFS around here snail-free. I'm trying to breed them in a five gallon, since the DPs made it impossible for them to breed in the 10gal.
