    I've seen Nirite snails every time I go to Dolphin Pet Village, they also carry zebra, mystery, ramshorn(although they probably wish they didn't lol), and a few others :) They also have a fish of the month, that particular fish is only 99 cents :D Probably my fav store in the bay area, they are so nice but some days they are very busy.

    There website looks interesting, I'll definitely check them out sometime. Have you been to Dolphin Pet Village or King's Aquarium? I prefer Dolphin because they have way better costumer survive and better hours. Only downside is I can't bring Rosie with me since they have their pet birds there, but king's doesn't care if I bring her, I just get weird looks lol.

    Water changes can vary-you want to maintain clear water for best light penetration to the plants and keep the nutrient level low in the water column to start to help prevent too much algae-Once the plants start actively growing and you have made a couple of trims and re-plants with the trimmings-This is usually a sign that all is going well and can back off on some of the water changes.
    Usually when I first set one up-I generally will use some type of filter for at least the first month and make water changes...50-75% more or less a couple of times a week-Then I remove the filter (if 10gal and smaller) and reduce water changes to weekly for another month-Then to 2-3 a month-Then once a month on 10gal and smaller-Once its about 3 months old and doing well-I may back off on water changes to every 2-3..even 6 months...This varies a lot based on my goal-stocking...etc....

    Its hard to say what the nutrient load will be on the soil without testing it....

    Only way to tell without test...is to try it....lol.....mixing it with the organic potting soil would be fine too-Sift them together if you can and if she also has some clay soil...mix a little of that in it too....most of the clays are high in Iron and plants love that especially swords....

    Well, the handful I put in the pond got eaten but the ones I put in the sorority are great. And best of all, no more nasty algae because of them. Thaaaaaaank you!

    Try asking the seller to put a little more water I suppose. Just keep them in a small container. Might as well starting drip acclimation on day two in that case.

    I'd try them in the order amano, nerite, otos. Some things work for one person but not for another.
