Crash studying before this quiz. I think I've got this, but I just want to be sure.
junior high-high school aged. Don't have the patience for smaller kids, I did girl guides and they're just....

They have been known to. I would keep mine on big rubber bins and feed the spinach or what ever else they will eat, I had one once but he died before he could get very big but he liked to eat carrot slices :)

Laki- Oh okay. I meant like K-6. Haha. I've found that while kindergarteners are adorable, they can be quite the pain in the rear. Honestly, the third through fifth graders are the most well behaved. Sixth grade is when they really start talking back, and I don't have patience for lip. Hah. I feel like I'll be a tiger mom one day..... xD

I have two mystery snails in my 20 gallon and I often find them munching on my dying onion grass. Not sure if it's because it's dying, or because they killed it. If they're killing it, then I'll have to re-home them. Keeping plants are a pain, and I'm sure snails don't help. Haha.

Omg. Test anxiety is starting to kick in. I'm not sure if I'm ready for this anymore. T.T

You are, Hadoken. Believe in yourself. We believe in you. :) You've studied and you've studied some more.

I've read that apple snails only eat plants if they aren't fed well enough but I dunno. Silverfang feeds her snails super well and they still ate all her plants.

My roomies 2.5gal tank is literally green and so cloudy you can barely see her fish.
Its gross. I've "hinted" more than once to clean the tank, yet she still hasn't cleaned it.
When I get home I think I'm going to have to change it myself. She bought those clear colored stones, and I think its not helping the water quality any. They seem to be leeching into the water, since the tank is on the windowsill. I don't know how she sits next to it all the time. I don't think shes changed it since before Spring Break, which was over 2 weeks ago.

GoodMorning, LOL! That's so funny.

She's still here. She borrowed a pair of my sweatpants. Haven't seen 'em since. Gonna have to ask for them I guess.

EDIT: Jen, aww. That poor thing. I never know how people can spend all day by a dirty fish tank and not feel guilty.

Don't steal a girls sweatpants! Thats grounds for a girlfight! *z-snap*

&& yeah, Idk. I think I'm gonna end up cleaning it and/or making a divider and giving him a little section of my 10gal until she decides to take care of him. He'll get fed, have 3gal to himself, and br in more than half decent water conditions. (mine aren't perfect, but I do my changes and keep them as clean as I possibly can) I'm afraid if I do this though, I'll end up with a new fish.
And I think he's got fin rot, or atleast a horrible fin biting problem. /sigh

Oh K-6 are sweet I guess. Wouldn't want to spend an 8 hour workday with them though, at least the older they are the better conversations you get: ex, a friend of mine in her junior high internship had a student ask her why the Germans gassed the Jewish people when they could have just shipped them out of Europe. Got into a whole new class on the Holocaust, and the World's role in it.

Hadoken, we believe in you!!! Imagine the end of the exam when you're taking a deep breath and feeling self assured bc the studying you put into it seemed to have paid off!
