I hope not, they were so cool. I loved the shape of their shells. I'm hoping that some hitchhiked back in on the driftwood and plants. I couldn't find them in the tank after getting all the plants/driftwood/fish out.

Also, Nilet, my neighbor is from England, and her friend brought me some candy over while he was visiting. YOU GUYS HAVE THE BEST CANDY. Oh my gosh.

Snow Bites, which were omg so great, and Galaxy chocolate if I remember correctly. I'm still have withdrawals from the Jordon Almonds from Italy I got last year :(

Bummer! They would go after something that big? That's crazy. I feel like it would be a feast! Do you feed them snails regularly or just let them pick over the tank?

Ugh, I'm so jealous. I just got a tiny bag, and have to hope that they'll feel pity and bring me more the next time they visit haha. They are so ridiculously good.

Caught a video of the loaches out and about for feeding time, hopefully going to post it later if I can get my phone to cooperate.

Ooh I can't wait! I need to get some videos up myself!

I'll cut you a deal, you pay flights and give me a place to stay...I'll bring you hundreds of snow bites! I'm rather well traveled for 25 but America - though more Canada - has still managed to avoid me somehow!

Well I have a spare bedroom in the house, but you may need to give me like..5 years to afford that ticket ;)

Thanks Fishy! Yeah, it was quite the process but it was worth it. All my fish are so happy, now it's just a wait and see on the plants.

On another note, my heater decided to break today. Because of the cold snap the water is staying around 70 degrees, way too cold for my liking. So I placed an online order for a new heater and I also got a new lightbulb while I was at it. Hopefully they come soon :/
