Shellie tank

10 Gallon, 3 multis (had 4, one is an outcast now in another tank, going back to the store tomorrow). Disregard the floating plant...it got removed after the photo was taken.

I just need to figure out a way to hide my sponge filter.

I could, but I'm told these guys like to dig around, so I figured I'd let 'em make themselves at home before I put plants in

Can the fish actually fit in the shell? Where did you get the shells from. Also I think some plants would make it look nice and hide the big blue sponge :)

They fit with room to spare. I got these shells from the LFS I bought the fish at, but I am pretty sure they are just escargot shells. The two smaller ones (I'm assuming females, since it is impossible to know for sure) have shells staked out and hover near them, so they can dart in if i walk up to the tank. Oddly, the large one (male?) hasn't picket out a shell. he is currently having a love affair with my Hydro II sponge filter I have in there (will I be seeing sponge fry soon?)

Nice tank! I have N. multifasciatus too. =)

And yeah, no point in adding plants unless they're attached to a rock or something and off the sand. The multies will bury 'em otherwise.
