I'm sad

Well, I decided I really wanted the snails, and I also found out that they ARE the type that eat plants so it was bye bye to my lovely planted tank It looks so sad and bare.

Gutted cause I was so pleased with it for a while there. I've put some rocks and another piece of bogwood in so that there's still plenty of hiding places for the fishes so they don't seem to mind - but i do!

The good news though is that I moved almost all the plants into my new, much smaller tank which awaits puffers :D so it is now one very heavily planted tank indeed! and I think it looks nicer than the bigger one did when planted!

The snails are so much fun to watch you won't even miss your plants. :)However, you could put some plastic ones in there if you really like the look. Let us know how you like your snails.

I hope so - half of me is thinking "sod the snails - bring back the plants" but I want to try something different, and I have plants in my smaller one now like I said and it's looking really good.

I recently gave away loads of plastic plants because of the real plants - LOL! It doesn't matter though. I'd rather have no plants than plastic ones because I just don't think they look right. I've actually started to see my large synodontis now that there are no plants. There's still places to hide like I said but she doesn't seem to want to go in them - so it;s quite nice to see her for a change LOL

Thanks Trishfish.

Sorry to hear about the wrong snails, Julie. Plants help improve the water quality and I think we all like the way we keep most tanks planted.;) Go with floating plants. Your syno will not bother to uproot any more plants too.

So you got your canas then? I'm so excited for you. The canas really have unique personalities. I don't name my fish but do my snails. I'm glad you like them and think they're fun to watch.

I guess you'll have to find a nice patch for Blair to retire to, and call one of the new one's Brown...
