I wish it was spring here!!

I'm sure Angel Fish would get used to shrimp if they were raised together. Might grow up thinking their mouths are too small to eat them.
FINALLY buddy showed up. And omg can I just put these adorable little things in my mouth!? They're acclimating now and I think there are 9 big ones and 3-4 small ones. I seen a saddle on at least one. Oh they are cute!

Yeah, he is in a 3G with a 25 watt marineland stealth heater. I tried everything with him - more decor, different tank sizes, furan 2, fungus cure, methelene blue, various parasite meds, salt...

He acts totally fine but his tail fin will NOT unclamp and he has been like this for a few months now.

It's -20C here too. My down filled jacket is surprisingly warm though. It's my feet that are cold :(

Laki, mine ate away at the IAL. I don't -think- they need tannin stained water but I could be wrong.

Very low filter, pretty sure I'mma have to turn down the filter when I go home and see if they settle. See any bellies with eggs Laki?

Oh Silver. I'm too afraid to put them in the tank!They have been in the bag floating and acclimating since about ... err... Over a half hour I think now. AND how do I catch them?

Why did the seller ship my snails given how freakishly cold it is?
I got them today as soon as the mailman pulled up. The cotton the seller put them in was like frozen
I put them in a betta cup and am floating them int he 20G - maybe they will be ok? The plants that were in the box are alive
Also they are SO tiny.
