Thanks B. That's why i was worried. I feed him exactly 3 pellets, twice a day and skip a feeding or even an entire day once a week.

On a completely unrelated note, I've lost the two original snails but have seen 6 baby Ramshorn snails on various locations in the tank. I don't know how many the tank can handle but six seems Ok for now - though I'm sure there are more on the horizon.

I just never worry about snails. if they find food they will multiply, and that makes me happy as it means they are dealing with biological issues I can't. As long as it is not overfeeding of course. I feed extremely sparingly, and only once a day. But the hundreds of Malaysian snails in my tanks means they are obviously eating other stuff like algae, decomposing plant matter, etc., that would otherwise pollute. I like my snails.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
