the only snail i like is my assassin snail Beowulf, because he eats the damn pond snails that infest our community tank. it's fun to watch him hunting them, creeping up on the glass behind them and then pouncing them in slow motion.

pond snails are really annoying, but a few weeks ago they gave us a good "early warning" message. when the frog-food fiasco happened, the first sign of a problem we saw was all the pond snails congregating above the water line, and figured there must be something wrong with the water if they all collectively ran away from it. luckily we got it taken care of before any of the inhabitants we WANT in there were hurt.

That's another benefit to the ponds.

I often use ramshorns to test the waters... they're less active if water quality is bad.

Oh, I didn't realize diatoms were algae. I remember we used to use diatomaceous earth to filter our pool. The diatomaceous earth is like a super fine sand made up of fossilized remains of diatoms, so I always pictured diatoms being kind of like tiny brine shrimp or something like that. Interesting. Even more interesting that we were using fossilized algae to filter algae out of our pool. haha.

That just blew my mind! How very interesting! Now I will have to look into this a bit further. I am a science geek and proud of it!

So I'm going to Petsmart in an hour. xD I might get a nerite and my QT tank is the cup Lebron came in. Advice? I'll get algae wafers and hopefully Lebron won't eat them.

I loves my snailies but they are live bearing and even then, the babies are about the size of a pea.
