WARNING: Alot of questions to follow.....and um...excitedness?(is that a word?????...)
So today, after a week or two of deciding whether to get a Nerite snail, i have decided to get one (although Honeycomb has been in that tank for almost 2 years, we will see how that goes)!!!!! Any ideas for names? I will be getting it in a couple of hours. I already have a large amount of alage growing in the tank for it, along with alage wafers. I was thinking about adding shrimp also, but have decided it would stress my Betta because of all the new tankmates. I will be going to Petco, because my Petsmart does not carry Nerite snails. I was thinking about a moss ball (i have a 10 gal.) , but i have NEVER had live plants, and NEVER use my aquarium light because the tank is next to a window(yah i know, stupid me). Would it benefit my tank, snail and betta? Would it serve the same purpose of ridding the water of nitrates like other aquatic plants? I really just like the look of it, but i am also curious what i could do to my tank. Also, how would you introduce it? Do you have to do any matnence on it?
Thanks everybody, I am SO excited!!!!!
