You would actually want one of mine?!? Gee Vic, that's really sweet of you

I'm hoping that Angel is a boy (the babies are very small, so I'm giving them a few weeks to settle in before I check) because an Ivory would make a great daddy with a black (if Sandy is a girl) or a Blue IMO and might end up giving me some stripes or spirals.

which such calcium rich food can you feed nerites without dropping the water hardness or having a hungry betta steal it? ive been forced to forgo algea wafers in my 5g as my betta gets to them first.

A few of my girls will bite at the blanched zucchini, but mostly, safer option.

I love snails, I would have one for every tank if I could but not sure a snail can live in a 2.5 with a betta so D: but I got room for more snails.

I want to know how to cook veggies long enough to where they sink in my tank, but not to the point that they make my tank stinky! (overdid the brocclii one day )
