Found another dead - which again I'm not too sad about since the number of dead is a fraction of what's still in there

Anyways in my main tank I have lots of live plants (40 gallon tank with gourami and platy). And some snails hitchhiked!! Not the ones I am used to either. So I grabbed two of these fast growing large snails, and put one in each fry tank Clean up crew!

The bent spine fry is still alive, and actually the spine is not as bent as it was before. But it is visible that the stomach is curved (with the spine) but he/she still has no problem keeping up with its siblings, eating, or swimming!

Yikes! Pond snails! Be really careful, those will take over even faster than ramshorns.

Gosh, pond snails. Gotta love the cute baby snails, but I hate the infestations. I feel like there is this dark cloud looming over me, as my plants are growing so big in the NPT that I am putting them in all of the other tanks (hornwort), Incoming pond snail infestation!!!

I love the deformed babies. I kept 4 from my platy spawn in my 5.5 gallon NPT with a mystery snail. Cute little buggers.

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. :)

Haha thanks :p tomorrow I shall upload some more pictures of the babies!

Gimpy is still going strong. He/she is with the half that are larger - which is good! Not at all a runt.

I took your advise and stole my VTs bubblenest, he didn't seem to mind and quickly built another. Worked like a charm. Thanks.
