Aquarium salt is used as a treatment. It shouldn't be put in a tank randomly; there's no need.

I love MTS (have them) and Ramshorn snail but the reproduce...a lot. You'd be much better off with a Nerite. Or, you could read the threads on African Dwarf Frogs. Skyewillow has one named "Pancake." You could contact her. She's very good.

What if I buy a "pregnant" female? Her eggs won't hatch, right? Will they harm the tank?

I wanted a frog but that's a huge no with my mom. :P

They won't hatch because they need brackish water to hatch and grow.

Nerites? No ... Mystery/apple snails do, but nerites have a low bioload.

I might buy one AND another betta. :P

The reason I want another betta is because you said (I think it was you) that they become more vibrant and active, which is exactly what I need.

Does your Mom know about African Dwarf Frogs? They are completely aquatic. Did you read the thread on ADF care? I don't think their bioloads are that much; certainly no more than a snail's...but I could be wrong.

I think we've given you too many choices.

xD I agree Russell.

Anyways, you can get both. :P if anything, my nerites crawl over the dividers to get more algae.

Yeah, I'll probably buy a nerite and a betta. I want something to eat the algae, it's all over the heater! (But what if he adjusts it......... )
