New and suffering snails as a result!

Hi,

found this website and thought it was cool to be able to connect with people who are AS interested in this stuff as I am starting to be...

I have already found someone that lives nearby that is on this forum...what a small world!

Anyway, good to be here, thanks for the welcome...

and yes, I have pond snails b/c I didn't treat my *expensive* plants...

(by the way, if you are bored, go to the gallery, I posted a pic of a fish that I need help identifying...molly or platy, male or female!? - it is white with red)

Welcome to Fishforum.com, Karen.

Your picture shows a variegated platy (Xiphophorus variatus). As for snails, controlling can be done by limiting feeding rations.:)

Hope to talk to you a lot.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Thanks!

Thanks for the welcome and the identification (by the way, how can you tell the dif 'tween molly and platy?).

Hope to connect in a fishy sense with people here...

I guess I have an odd sense of being able to identify most common livebearers. Your fish is a male. Male mollies have larger fins than the platies.
