Morning. *Yawn*
What do I feed my new snails (provided I can get them today, everyone has apple snails but I don't want them). I want the snails to clean up my algae but do I have to feed them something else? Something that won't cloud the water, will nerites eat lettuce? (cucumber clouds the water)

2 new snailies. I wanted the dark one but just noticed now that they're home he is missing shell on the top. The other one looks good. They need fewd. Couldn't put 12$ down on a bag of algae wafers because that's ridiculous. Going to hit up ebay for that. In the meantime, will they eat lettuce?
I love their shells. One had a REALLY cool shell pattern but most of it was eaten away. Was it normal for the nerites to be housed with the loaches?? Didn't seem right to me.
Oh and Ludendorff ate Milton. Circle of life.

that sounds weird to me. At my LPS they are like, with shrimp and guppies. loaches like to eat snails don't they? some stores are dumb.

i want to go get another nerite now Laki, lol. Maybe two- I'm sure the betta ladies need a buddy!

I guess they were loaches. I don't actually know.
I was, however, looking at the dead duckweed in one tank and scared the poop out of myself because there were like butterfly fish or something chilling in it. Totally did not expect that lol

Ludendorff jumped out of his holding cup while I did the change.. He was looking bad for a while, was going to do a q tank for him. But he seems fine now and I put him back in the tank. His beautiful tail which was like 95% grown back is a little shredded because I panicked and picked him up by it.
Nerites are gone to work! lol One is named Gammon (for backgammon) but that's tentative.
