Yes, I do plan on getting snails. Apparently my friend can get them for me- she has too many in her tank. I still have NOT gotten the test kit- Agh! Shrimp sound really cool as well- what does their care consist of?

Every so often I drop in an algae wafer for mine, otherwise they do their own thing. I have to clean out under their hiding spot every couple weeks though cuz they're still growing and there tends to be a lot of molted shell bits. They don't seem to poo as much as a snail, either.

You can leave the shrimp molts in the tank. The shrimp eat them to help toughen their new skin after the molt.

Well, I try to leave em but if none of them have recently molted or it's something that look like they won't eat like little bitty bits then away it goes. I've only got three females so it's easy to keep track of who's doing what.

Welllll...they seem a bit happier when they have stuff to pick through and you can only do so much with plastic plants so if you have water sprite (which grows pretty fast)and stuff I think they like it more. I mean, algae will probably grow on the plastic but mine will eat dead plant bits too...yum
