Fantastic, thank you.
Is there anything I should know/do to put the snail in the tank when we get them? I'm sure they're kept at a different salinity, it would be a pretty big coincidence if they were kept at the exact same salinity. This is my first experience with a brackish tank, and it's not even my tank (go figure). The puffers started off as freshwater and have slowly been converted to brackish, so we didn't have to really worry about moving them to a different salinity. The snails are going to end up as puffer food, but it would be nice to not have them die the minute they go in the tank.
Also, should we be using a marine test kit or is freshwater still ok? I use an API freshwater [liquid] master test kit on all our tanks. About a day or two ago I did a test on the brackish tank and in the ammonia test tube it looked like there were tiny particles suspended in the liquid. I suspected it was from the salt, which made me wonder if I should be getting a Saltwater test kit.
