And I know what you mean with the snail poop. It surprises me the amount of poop that Honey can produce, she's a damn poop machine!! Even if she hasn't eaten in a long time she still produces a massive amount of poop!
oh yes. I figure by the time the cycle on the other filter finishes the time of sex certainty will have passed. I am only 2 weeks into the cycle on the new filter. and I still have to wait to receive my plants and sponge filter. It will be at least another 2 week before I get the second filter I am sure (free shipping, from Hong Kong) I do plan on getting the new tank soon though. That way, If the filter finishes cycling, I can go ahead and put Cobra in her new home and not have to change the water so often.
I'm tempted to leave The Marias in their own tank. Maybe get some Zebras to add to them.
Also, I finally got Cobra to accept some flakes. I think I just spoiled her too much and she was like "wth why would I eat that when I know you have egg and shrimp and nls pellets crushed into a fine powder?? I pity tha foo!" Yesterday I ran out of egg so I gave her some crushed up flakes. She accidentally ate a piece thinking it was something yummy then just looked at the rest and swam away. I didn't give her anything else. The next time I tried to feed her she actually ate some more. Today I have only given her flakes so that I can make sure she will eat them. Tonight I will give her NLS pellets. I don't need another picky thing in my house!
