:( I'm sorry, John. As beautiful as they are, they also seem equally as fragile.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! ALL THOSE SNAILS!!! HAHA! I love it! Great shots!

Mine are doing well so far! I have a yellow, a white,a pretty greyish blue one, and the purples - you weren't lying when you said they're purple - I wasn't expecting the color to be so strong! They're REALLY pretty! Thank you for sending them! ^.^

So yesterday I broke down my QT tank and gave it and everything in it a good cleaning in hot water and vinegar after the death of my Scarlet Badis.
This is how it did look.


I took some new sand and washed it, put into the tank today along with siphoning out some from my Snails tank and got something like this.


I am betting you are trying to figure out how I siphoned out the sand from the snails tank? LoL that's was easy. Look at the pic in the last post see that's ALL the snails in one corner eating! LoL so I just siphoned out some sand from the other side.I still managed to suck up some Malaysian Trumpet snails that I actually forgot were in that tank.


You are also probably wondering what happen to the plants??
No, I didn't throw them away! LoL
They are in a QT tank all to themselves (well with one or two snails.).




Soo now you are thinking its bare, Right??
Yes I know and I still have to add back the pot and the other rocks tomorrow. J also plan to add some Frogbit plus a few other plants to it. It also desperately needs a background too! LoL

I bet you are asking why all the trouble to clean this tank in such a manner?? Well you will just have to wait 5 more days!!

Gottcha wondering now don't I??? LoL

I moved the Goldfish bowl and added a desk lamp too it. I was afraid that it wouldn't get enough light sitting under the Table lamp. My wife wants me to add something to it! LoL
She thinks it needs a fish O.O
I told her about the only thing I could add to it was maybe a shrimp or 2.
