Nerite snail questions
So, both my 2.5 gallon tanks have some algae growth. I've been filtering (Tetra 3i filter in each) and I wipe down the algae off the sides when I WC, but I've been doing serious research into getting a nerite snail for Tycho's tank (he is more docile than Esmeralda) and if that works out, getting one for Esmeralda too.
Stats for both tanks:
Tetra 3i filter
Copious java moss
Water temp between 79 and 82 degrees
The lids for each tank are not entirely on, because I'd have to drill holes in some serious metal for my heater cord and my airline tubing, but they are cracked relatively small, away from the waterline by 2 inches (I have jumpers and I'm paranoid even with lids), and I'm willing to vigilantly check tanks for snails in the morning, as well as supplement with algae wafers if they appear to need the food boost.
So... no snail? See how a nerite does in Tycho's tank and go from there? What does the fox say? (It's a little late, and I've been researching snails all night, sorry :P)
