Yes. I open it occasionally to let new, fresh, air in.

Is it bad if it isn't?
How does the habitat look?
Nobody is on the plant yet...

There also seems to be less snails...but that's just me...I think/hope.

Lid off!

I have a large jar to put them in on Thursday. It doesn't have a lid.

Sweet.

Oh! 'Nother question:

Sometimes, my filters grow what looks like algae, or some kinda green sludge. Could I scrape that off into my snail tank or no?

-Just Did a population count and got 4...I could've sworn there were more...?-

Now I just counted 5.

If it's algae, leave it alone. Your snails will eat them.
