    Hi. My first post so sorry if I ramble!! Ok. So I have had a 62L for a while and now I have a small 25L tank which I was going to have as a shrimp tank, but is now being overrun by what I believe to be pond snails. They have hitch hiked on some plants... Always had 1-2-Grow before so just...

Here are the situations I've seen since i started. I've added 9 ghost shrimp and 8 nerite snails to try to help with...

    I am currently running a 16 gallon tank with a Fluval C3. I've always wanted an invert tank but have never actually gotten around to setting one up. I was thinking about breeding snails (pond snails, mystery, ramshorn, etc.) as well as cherry shrimp to raise as live food for my fish in the 55...

    Hi all, Long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm a beginner fishkeeper who recently set up a 70L planted tank for my four guppies and, as I suppose should be expected, a snail snuck its way in on one of the plants. Plucked it out, but just found another one this morning - It has begun. My...
  7. Beginner Planted Aquarium
    I am new at cycling, so I decided to try going with the silent cycle. When I brought in the plants, baby snails hitched a ride into my 20 gallon long tank and a day later my ammonia is at .2! Now I am unsure how to go about with my cycling. I appreciate all the help I can get with this. Plants...

    Hey there~! Okay so I have an Established 60 US Gallon tank. It's been running for 6 months now round about. It is planted. The plants had gone loopy! This was my first "BIG" tank so I was confused as to why they were growing, some were dying and yet they were sprouting! in other areas of the...

    Hi, I am looking for some advice about my black mystery snail. Fairly new to the tank, no problems were present before, and he was happily cruising around when I got him. Now, I've noticed that he hasn't moved much. I moved him to an incubation tank in my 20G (consists of tetras, an angelfish...

    So today i was cleaning my tank and i accidentally buried my baby apple snail in some gravel. He's so tiny and he's the same color and size as some of the stones. I can't find him is he gone for good or is there any chance he might crawl out? I feel so bad!!:cry:

    I am ordering Ghost Shrimp and Nerite Snails and I'm wondering if they would do okay in neutral water?

    I have a bit of an Algae Problem in my 13 gallon Tetra tank. I have 5 Black Skirts and 1 Gold Skirt in the tank, and I had a small Pleco in there with them, but he died on Christmas Morning about a week after I got him. I'm not sure why, I put the wafers in there for him, and he ate them, so...

    Here are a few questions I want to ask before I buy Assassin Snails for my tank. If I order them and I have no other snails in my tank, well they go after any fish or shrimp I buy or would they accept wafers and other food? And would I need to buy some say Mystery Snails to keep them healthy...
  15. Invertebrates
    I'm planning on adding either shrimp, snails or both into a 20gal Fish tank, which right now contains only a male betta, along with some other fish. I'm also going to buy a pre-filter sponge so that nothing gets sucked up into my power filter. What I'm looking for is not only the pros and cons...

    I was considering getting at least 3 of what kind of Rainbowfish is available at Petsmart and the petstore by my house for my 55 gallon, along with a Striped Raphael Catfish. I heard that Rainbowfish are very nice-looking after a while and I like the striped catfish as is (also, it makes...

    I have hundreds of these baby snails and don't know what they are. They are either zebra snails or a snail that came with the plants.
