To which of us is that question directed?
I'm thinking of "rehoming" my mystery snails so there will be less of a bioload on my fish. I wish I could get plain ol' pond snails. When they breed, the eggs/baby snails make a nice betta snack. Even mystery snail feelers make a betta snack, too :0(

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

4 girls in my tank right now,i was hoping for a fifth when i bought my fourth girl but i couldnt find any that looked the right size or healthy enough or had colours i was lookin for..

80 percent of the females in petco/petsmart seem to be cambodians,i allready have 1 so i did not get any more of them..

i might get a fifth girlin the coming week or two if i spot any nice ones,im keeping my eye on the classifieds section here hoping to find cheap females but its expensive for them when you factor in the shipping,much easier and cost effective to get a 1-3 dollar fish at petco.i figure ill get more tanks in future when im in a bigger house and then ill have more knowledge and can stock it with beautifull half moons from breeders..

little update

day 11 of my sorrority and all is good in the tank, a couple of fins were nipped but havent seen any new nips in 3 days or so,they dont really even chase each other any more, the blue ct alpha might chase one aay if they get too close but she doesnt chase all over the tank,she will just dart at them about an inch in distance then everything is cool again..

lookin good.ill update when anything happens

I have a very docile little red girl too in my sorority! I got 8 of my girls at Petco and the other one at Petsmart. They've all been in there for almost a month now and are getting along swimmingly. I only noticed one real fin nip and that is healed now. There's a bunch of photos of my girls/tank in my albums. :) Good luck with yours, it's a beautiful tank!
