New Nerite and Thiaridae Snails
 
Got some new snails, all native in the Philippines.

Septaria freycineti died shortly but I'll request for more as back ups for studies. Other species are Septaria psittacea and Neripteron mauriciae.

The mystery snails were not happy when I put the hair algae just for the new snails and scooted inside the breeder trap to get to the algae.http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums...lies/irked.gif

unique. if they over populated would your assassin snails take them out or they are too big. how many tanks do you actually have Lupin. seems as though you have several with different species in each alone.

I have nine tanks but only seven are in use since I need to replace two small tanks for three larger ones. I've quitted keeping bettas. They're dull.:roll:

The nerites I have won't breed in FW. They require BW/SW to be able to do that unless I can find the Theodoxus fluviatilis which is one of the few nerite species that can breed in FW.

I've cancelled my order from another seller at the moment as I'll be on vacation next week however I'll have the order delivered in next two weeks when I arrive. I can guess about 10 species in the package.:-D
