I would offer to ship you some plants.... but I doubt it will come anywhere close to filling up your tank :D

what plants did you get?
That's great! I need to find some fellow Chicagoans who want to give me plants.

I have a 10 gal and am doing a plant cycle so I need a lot of plants. ;)

The plants I bought are Anubias, Anacharis, Amazon Sword, Corkscrew Vallisneria and Aponogeton Crispus. The Anacharis arrived okay looking but the Corkscrew V and Aponogeton C arrived dead. The Swords are great and the Anubias is good too. I want to get java moss and was thinking about hornwort as well.

I had the same thing happen to me several months ago.. I came home after a long weekend and found my nerite had found his way out of my mini bow and was on my dresser.. he looked dry, but I was feeling luck so dropped him in a cup of tank water.. and he came back! Crazy little snails, he never did it again and I now have a cover over that hole.

I guess I could try some in the goldfish tank at work but I think the Goldie's would try to eat the nerites!

I don't know, I just plan to put them together in a breeder box and see what happens They breed in fresh water but then you have to put the eggs into brackish water to hatch.
