I use 2.5g to 6 gallon food grade water cooler bottles to hold my conditioned water, but now since it's so cold now I need to add the water back into the tank before it cools 10 degrees below room temperature.
I prefer the cooler bottles with the handles because once it's filled with water, it doubles as a giant hand weight. It's fun to pick them up with one arm.
Also I remember you mentioned something a while back about snails gathering at the surface... means bad things about the water in the tank.
- What exactly does that indicate again?
I RARELY feed my MT & RH snails, limpets, but since I've been testing out different dried food options to the surprise batch of fry.....
Basically I'm crushing various type of prepared fish foods into smaller pieces/powder with my fingertips. Within 30-60 minutes the snails make their way to the surface to get better access to the remaining bits of uneaten protein powder.
