Nerite food.

I think my nerites need food. I read blanching carrots and cucumber would be favorites but they are not interested in carrots. And they haven't touched the lettuce I weighted down. I separated them to the .5g with some food. I don't what to feed them! (I cannot buy a 12$ bag of algae wafers right now)

Algae wafers, mine will munch on blanched zucchini.

If you need a handful of wafers then we should meet. I've got a full bag and a bit.

ooh ooh ooh! That would be nice. My sister is actually bringing some down from when she had plecos and apple snails. I bet I'll get more than I need from her but I'll keep you in mind Silver! :)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I jst give cucumbers raw. Not that you'd cook them anyway, they'd just turn to water. lol

So I think Gammon is dying. He's been laying upside down on the gravel since I got home last night (but I didn't poke him bc I was too upset about work and hating life)
