Hi guys! First time poster here :) This is my betta's planted 5 gallon that he shares with 3 ghost shrimp. It's a bit of a mess right now, but I have big plans in the works. I'm sorry for the poor picture quality by the way. My camera is down right now so I had to take this with my phone. Thanks for looking!

LilFins, your tank looks like mine:



That's random, lol, but I got this tank used and have always been kind of curious on what the heck it is. When I measured the outer dimensions of the tank, though, mine would only hold 4 gallons if it were filled to the brim. The previous owners also ripped off whatever was covering the hole on the front.

Yep that looks just like mine. It's the Hawkeye 5 gallon from Wal-Mart. I'll post a link in case you want to check it out. It's suppose to hold 5 gallons, but I wouldn't be surprised if Wal-Mart got it wrong lol

Thanks! I went through all the trouble to figure out the area of the bottom of the tank (it's a weird shape) and took it times the height and converted it to gallons and found it holds exactly 4 gallons.. I find it strange how they can just get away with that..

Snails are hermaphroditic, meaning they are able to produce both types of gametes (ova/sperm). This means that a single snail has the ability to produce offspring when not in the presence of another snail as long as it has previously exchanged gametes with another snail.

I do believe not all snails are hermaphrodites as said earlier. I know for a fact that pond snails and ramshorns are, though.

Edit: I could be wrong though, and it doesn't quite matter for me since my snail is a Nerite and their eggs don't hatch in freshwater.

Yes, there are exceptions, like the apple and periwinkle snails. They have separate sexes, but there is still no easy way to positively i.d. males from females without examining them internally.
