    Hi, I was wondering how many nerite snails I could fit safely in a large KK. It has a 10 gallon filter (baffled, still overkill :P) and a 10w heater. It is approximately2.5-3 gallons. I am using it as a platy fry tank. I thought that when there is no fish in there I can keep the snails in there to help keep the cycle going.

    Well I'm not sure if it was less or not, I just tested a week later to see where I was. I put some bioballs in another tank so I always have bacteria available, plus my sister has an Aquaclear 50 so I can steal some bacteria too lol.

    So my tap comes out at like 8 pH and my 5.5 is at 6.2 with the Fluval stratum and CO2 running 24/7 and an airstone at night

    No it is crude and all that which is also reducing the flow.

    I cycled a 5.5 gallon tank in a week or less with a jump start :)

    Yeah i heard of several ways, but all of them you need a wire to pull the cleaning device in and out. So I just need to find out how I could rig a cleaner up. The pipes are so dirty lol

    16-24 gallons Freshwater... Too strong lol, I found the Hydro Pico Ecomag and that one has 180 adjustable. So I am gonna get that, as I can just turn the flow down.

    Do you know a good way on how to clean out filter tubes for a canister?
