Great score on the tank $5 is an amazing deal! I agree - I always like to have a back-up plan for my tanks. Makes life so much easier that way. Good luck with the snail farm *blegh* and the mysis feeding.

It s crazy! Even worse that that snail tank cost me 15!!!! It's a "first tank" tank though.... came with the tiniest little filter. Looks like a fluval 0.5 internal its that small. Haha.

And yeah iv got a bag of the live daphnia. Why you jealous???

Oh, and I asked Sophie about squee..it's a no. Lol. She is the cutest little thing and a proper kid at times.... but she was like .....what? That's a noise not a name!!! Hahahahahahahaha!
She wants to name one Flo though....which is the one who doesn't like it's reflection and also likes to play in the filter outlet!

Yes I'm jealous! None of my local LFS sell live food, just frozen, which sucks if I'm going to start a culture.

...I'm still gonna call it Squee, in my brain..muahahaha.

So, speaking of live food, Drs. Foster & Smith sells this thing that is supposed to keep up a supply of live brine shrimp slowly releasing into the tank, says it can be used for both salt and fresh water. I wonder if you could modify something like that for daphnia/some type of worm?

Here's a pic of the tiny filter I got free with the starter tank. I just pulled it in half too to see what was in it media wise. 2 squares of black foam. Haha. Might throw some wool in it and use it on my 55.....

Has no purpose either as snails better off in dirty water....

Oooh question.... would the elodea survive without any proper lighting on it. As in house lights? I have the old 9w bulb I would have to figure out how to rig to the tank...but I'd do it, but if it doesn't need it would be happier.....

Haha Jen why you trying to make me automate the feeding?!?!?! You know what I did tonight.... third feed..... rather than adding them to the tank.....using the pipette I managed to 'hand feed' them! This is so much better! I might even try PROPER hand feeding them soon!!!

I would just be so worried about them not getting enough food and having something to munch on in the tank :p

Do they all come front and center for dinner?

I love to hand feed my fish! Your Puffs seem really to be settling in well, I'm sure they'll take very nicely to being hand fed in a short time at this rate - though the thought of hand-feeding live worms is . . . kind of. . . creepy to me - though I do it with dead ones all the time, lol!

And "squee," is not just a sound! It's a proper word that was formed fromed by the happy union between the words "squeal" and "glee" AND it's a VERB, To Squee is to become so overexcited about something that. . . squeeing . . . happens. So there. Plus? It's a name now, too. Say what you will, one of them will always be Squee to me! I think it's selfish that you have FIVE Puffers, and me and Jen have NONE, and you won't share not even a single name with us. *sulks* I like Flo too, though :)

*blegh* was for the snailfarm. I'm not a big fan of pond snails, though I AM a HUGE fan of almost every other type of snail - you know, the types that aren't hitchhikers!

aww, mini and cute filter!
Snails do like to have clean water, and anyway, what damage would that filter do (beside your bills)?
Lol, just call one squee... your killing us

No unfortunately they don't all com front and centre yet.... trying to get them too but at the same time I like dropping a few randomly for them. They stalk their prey

Haha Jes did you crack out the urban dictionary for that one?!?

And it doesn't matter JJ they are going to go with squee anyway!!!! Probably for all 5 of them!!!! Haha

Wondering if the shrimp will have survived the night.....
