Grats Olympia!!
So I guess I won't put a pond snail in to clean up then, don't want to risk eggs. I have 1 adult rams and he's somewhere in with Bowser. Don't think I want a mystery snail because of the poop and I don't want to have to supplement his diet with wafers.

Thanks Laki and Silver!
I'm confused, I thought you wanted the snails to reproduce, Laki?

I did when I thought my assassins would eat them all up. I had a cruel lab devised in my head to breed the ponds and feed them to the assassins.
My assassins won't touch them though, in fact they all co-mingled in one tank for a while. Took them out 2 days ago, the assassins, and they're floating in a betta cup in the heated tank. Might give them back to their owner or give them away. I don't want them..
I don't want the pond snails either, fortunately I have a controlled population in a butter container. I have 1 ramshorn so once he dies that's it.

I knowww but I don't like their eggs! I think theyre okay but I'm too afraid to put them in my tank because I don't want a problem with them!!
I posted an ad on kijiji for someone to come take them in case someone has a puffer or loach or something but nobody did :( I mean, I won't kill them but I have no use for them either!
Will 1 pond snail help clean up my tank??

Laki, I think you need a nerite snail.

ALSO found a thing to put all the tanks on!!! Only problem is it doesn't quite fit the ten gallon >.< BUT I have an alternative spot for the ten, so two five gallons will go on the stand, and then...i don't know what's going to happen to the kritter keeper. LOL

OH YEAH THAT 29 IS GONE :angry: i should have bought it when i had the chance >.<

I don't think snails really clean tanks unless they're planted or have algae. xD


Awww bekah, there goes your ranchu dreams. Even though now I guess it's angel fish dreams.
