Yeaaaa happy to hear Fishy Norman is eating !!!! Sorry the Anacharis is not working out, you can find some very pretty silk plants at most places or on line at Amazon they have some nice ones. If you do start to see snails something you can try is putting a piece o lettuce or cucumber in the tank overnight and check it very early in the morning and if there are any snails they should be on it, just take it out and do it each night for awhile.
I just used to go on the riding trails in the Smokey Mountains as I live in Tennessee and they were so fun and so pretty up that way, the Fall time is beautiful with all the trees changing color. That is all the riding I have ever done but I loved it !
