LOL, thanks! I died when I saw the TRALALA one. That moment when you go through the hundred of pics you've snapped and one just jumps out and you have that "yeees!" moment.

As for Ramses, he has that egyptian vase in his tank, but he rarely goes in it, he likes to hide behind and swim through the handle of it. I think he's scraping himself on the heater holder things. I always catch him swimming through the back of the heater, and wedging himself between the little arm things that stick out of the suction cups and grab the heater. I tried putting the suction cups father apart so there's more room for him to get by. See if that helps any. If not, I may just stick it in the gravel.

Oh yes! I know those moments all too well! Love them still though ^_^

Yeah, I have the vase thing too but could be anything really. I would try to stick it in the gravel or something, or put them so close he can't possibly get through maybe.

Yea, or maybe I'll just use one suction thingie. Ha. I JUST thought about that. *face palms*

Anyhoos! We have two new family members! I bought the two more active snails in the tank. Well, there was one that was really active but it was the size of a golfball! Seriously it was HUGE! I wanted to get it, but I thought it was probably too big for the 5.5. But, I got them home and plopped them in a cup of Mysti's tank water. There was a dead fish in the tank they were in, granted the rest of the fish were healthy looking, I still want to quarantine/rinse them off for a bit. I dropped a few pellets in the water and one of the snails climbed right down and started nomming on them! So cute! The other one is just floating in the water. I hope he decides to stop floating and move around.

Well the other little guy/gal woke up and suctioned his/herself to the glass. Yay! They're so cute I can't wait to release them into the tank and take some real pictures. I picked up a few more plants today as well to give them more cover. I'll do all that tomorrow. Give Mysti's house a good vac and rearrange some of the plants.

They're allliiiiiive!

LOL, I know. Some of them have such massive finnage. I know what they feel like, me in a wind storm before I chopped my hair.

The snails are both alive! But not before a scare this morning. Neither of them had moved the entire night, so I cupped them and within seconds they were crawling up the walls. So, I let them be while I planted and cleaned the tank. Placed Meep (The bigger one) on the log and Blip decided to just float around since he couldn't get a foot suctioned to the wall. Poor lil guy, I shall refer to them as boys since I dunno the gender even though they have neutral names. So I placed an IAL leaf under him and omg he was crawling aaallll over it. That is until Mysti took a go at him. Then she had a go at Meep. He was finally cleaning off my plant and all the sudden I see him go sailing across the tank. Not sure if he jumped or if she knocked into him with her tail. I think she may have given them a tentacle trim or two too. But they're still moving around. Blip has taken to hiding on top of the IAL just out of her reach. Meep is hiding in the log, which I feared may get him beaten more, but surprisingly she's left him be aside from looking. She's actually been going around the tank, stopping to check on Blip then going over to check on Meep. Maybe she's taking a liking to them? *crosses fingers*

Meep: Come over here! I shall teach you the ways.
Mysti: Oh..okay!



Meep: Okay, now back in and make like a rock!

Whatever! I'm just too pretty to be hidden!
