    Oh. In that case, then there isn't much point. -.-
    I know, I'll see if I can remember something else. lol
    I've been in the same position soo many times, except me and Mom want to rescue, but no room for more tanks. :(
    How long have you had Lebron?

    Ask your LPS if you can order some, I know some will let you.
    Livebearers actually choose genders when they are born by the male:female ratio in the tank, if there was 10 males and 2 females, most of the fry will chose to be female since there is a shortage. lol

    The pond snails are asexaual, so they can reproduce with themselves. Ramshorns and MTS are like this too. So, in other words, SO MANY BABIES! Apple snails and Nerites need a male and a female. lol

    Yeah, the female platies can store the sperm for up to 9 months. :s Mine gave birth after 1, and the other has difficulty swimming, so I doubt she'll give birth. My only worry is that the 3 females I kept are actually females. I kept the ones with deformities in a 5.5 gallon NPT. :) With the pond snails and the mystery snail. The fin underneath their belly shows whether they are male or female. Females have it in the shape of a sea shell and males in a sword shape, it's really easy to decipher. Same goes for guppies, endlers, & mollies, maybe all livebearers! lol

    Oh okay so they just stick to the rocks while the poop and junk get sucked up, gotcha ;)

    Thanks for your help LTB!

    Oh no problem, lol.

    But wouldnt the siphon take a bunch of bacteria out of the gravel? Whether its during a water change or not?

    Yeah, first bloat, then SBD. All better now, thankfully. :)
    Pond snails are tiny. Mine are babies, so maybe 3mm?
    Definately get 1 mystery snail for no babies. I made the mistake of getting a pair of female platies. 21 babies later . . .

    Hey LTB, i was just reading the thread about a bare bottom tank and i was wondering.... Doesnt the BB in the substrate get ruined every time i use a gravel siphon?

    LOL I knew it wouldn't go good with a forum that has a million mods.

    My snails are good. The nerite had to be taken from the 5 gallon and put in the 10 gallon community since Velvet is on metronidazole and epsom salt. Mystery Snail is doing good. Always climbs to the top of the moneywort, then falls off. hehe Pond Snails are no where to be seen. O.o I hope I haven't siphoned them in a water change. :S Aren't you setting up a sorority?
