Get some calcium clay. Soft water erodes snail shells and lead to their inevitable premature demise :)
I've kept my nerite snail's shell shiny and sparkly with a small pinch at water changes.
I couldn't fit the heater in snuggly for the 2.5 since I have the water level lowered half way for some emergent plant growth. I think Kuro's ok in the 1 gallon for now, he's slowed down quite a bit as he matured. Not the same hyperactive betta he once was :) But that may also be attributed to me lowering the temps at bit to accomodate the plants I have.
I didnt instruct the baby sitter to cup him during his feeding sessions, but it still swam right in after coming home. seems like it's permanantly conditioned into him now..
Im still expanding my plant collection.
when you start buying plants at $15/ea...>.>
Kuro was only $2! lol
