Indianbetta there's no need to worry your fry's are barely learning how to free swim. Some may make the cut and some may not, it's natural (from what I know). It would be nice to add a few live plants in there too

What Junglist said. They usually dart around the surface but some WILL stay towards the bottom.

@Kaden: I've shipped a lot of snails :D It's pretty much the same as fish but give them an IAL leaf to cling on to during transit.

Indianbetta, yes I keep my snails in the sorority tank to clean up after the piggy females during the day, and move them into the fry tanks at night.

Dom, that's good. Is there a limit to the number you can keep in one bag? Or do they care? Not like they're territorial.... xD

How's the weather where you're at, IndianBetta?

Right now its staying in the 80's and 90's and I think its probably getting down to the 60's at night - the coldest.

Not sure how sensitive to temperature changes the snails are during shipping, so I'll just insulate the doo doo out of it. xD When you open the box, everything might spring out like one of those snake-in-a-can pranks.

Not a problem. The Java moss hasn't arrived just yet, I'll let you know when it does and I'll start packing everything. I just got all of my shipping supplies sent to me, 25 sets of each size of Priority and Express boxes and labels. My mailwoman gave me the look of death when she delivered them. xD xD xD

My mailwoman delivers a ton of stuff weekly because I love ordering free stuff lol.

I use the boxes around the fish room as lids for my jars or to card my fish.

Haha! thats cool, no problem, Im very happy, just went in their, though quite a few are not active, I sucked some up and they had full bellies, I did suck up quite a few micro worms, so I am over feeding :( I did find about 3 dead ones - with full bellies hmmm did they eat them selves to death, the dead ones had the biggest bellies I have seen, weird. I added another red solo cup of water, and they all jumped to life, cleaned up a few peices of debris i could see with my turkey baster thing. Soo very glad there is this website, and other crazy people like me who love bettas - my husband says "they are just fish" and it amazes him how long I can sit in my betta room and just watch them lol
