So today I went to check my water and was all prepped up for getting more fish. The guy told me my nitrites and nitrates wee a tad high (they were at 10, very high) and advices me against getting a new fish. I don't know why this is happening I have been on schedule for water changes but maybe it's the decaying plant matter that I have to take out. How do I lower those levels?
Also, I saw something very strange as I was feeding my fish not to long ago. I was watching them munch on the flakes when suddenly my attention goes to the fake driftwood on the bottom. I see this big piece of debris and upon closer inspection it was moving and had antennas. It was a snail! How on earth did that thing get in the tank??? I don't know anything about snail types what I can tell you the shell was shaped like a spiral cone (if this makes any sense) and it was a dark brown shell. Should I keep it or take it out??
It obviously was very young since it was tiny and as fast as it came, it disappeared and I tried so hard to get to see him again, and I couldn't find him anywhere :/
