Unfortunately, i've found an empty baby white spot shell. I also had a dead nerite as well. Hoping things are alright.

as usual i haven't tested water, but i did a change today lol. Hopefully payday i can buy at least a little something more to harden my water, or at least more fertilizer. been out of that for like two months!!


on the bright side i see more teeny tiny bbies!!!

Sorry your found a dead baby. But glad you found a bunch more babies! You could try adding some more crushed coral to your tank. Is it doing anything to the pH?

first off, no i haven't tested lately ;)

second, i DID find my biggest/original baby snail's shell. empty u.u i'm starting to wonder if i should just rehome them. i absolutely ADORE them but i don't want them to keep dying :/

I don't think you need to rehome them just yet. You should really try equilibrium to harden the water. I used to have issues with snail shell erosion but I don't anymore since I started equilibrium. The amount that it takes to dose my 29 gal is just like 10 grams. A 600 gram bottle will last you a long time with that. Also put some more coral in there! And test, woman! Test! Don't count yourself out of the ballgame yet! We believe in you!!
