Are we having some kind of assassin/loach strike? "No more snails! No more snails!" *swim around with little picket signs.

Poor assassins, they fell down on the job so now they have to live in a renovated cat bathroom. :D

Speaking of cats, YES, I'LL FEED YOU STOP MEOWING AT ME!

EDIT: Bekah, no. :( Sadly, it didn't make it. :(

Olympia, congo tetras? They only get 3 inches.

Aw, sorry to hear about the baby fish :( How awful. You should take him back to the store, not for a refund but to let them know the awful conditions they are keeping fish in.

I sort of buried him already. :( That Petco takes pretty good care of their bettas. I think he was just too small. He probably couldn't eat whatever they fed him.

Yea but they're psychotic fish. xD According to what I've read they can swim the length of a 90 in like 2 seconds. Plus they're jerks to each other and other fish when they grow up.

Sakura have you thought of dwarf loaches? They only get 2" and they also eat snails.
