bwahah, thanks P3 (though should the population get too large, I will keep that in mind) XD

I like my 4 or so pond snails and MTS, and don't want to hurt them. However, since Panche decided to be a stinker and wait until added to the main tank to show symptoms of possible internal parasites, I have to treat the whole. entire. tank. with epsom salt, and both boys with garlic soaked pellets.

Umm, I'm sure you know this, but pond snails are asexual and will infest your tank

I've got some slightly silly questions! Do filters come with the cartridge that goes in them? And is a siphon the same thing as a gravel cleaner, and if not, which is the better to use if you have a 10 gallon? (If tank size matters!!)

How do you tell the difference between male and female Dragons? I have read they dont have as much metallic.

I ask because my new dragon I just noticed might have an egg bump... but that would make what I thought to be a boy... a girl...

What do you think?

I have a quick question.....
How badly do betta fish need a varied diet? How often should I feed it frozen blood worms aside from regular pellets? Where is a good place to store frozen blood worms? Thanks!!

im looking for an alternative to a tank that i can float my QT in? LPS has kritter keepers but would any sort of tupperware tolerate a heater attached to it? could it also stress out the fish if anyrhing over .5g stm gets to it? especially if it sees water just outside the QT.

@hazel, a gravel cleaner is the same as a siphon, called a gravel siphon. Use one rated for 10 gallon tanks. Filters generally come with one cartridge, if I remember.

@shimi, no idea

@lizard man, they should get a varied diet, feed frozen blood worms 2-3 times a week, in conjunction with pellets. In the fridge.

@nel, what are you asking? What is ".5 STM"?

sorry Neil thats a typo. i meant the .5G ATM. i dont have a small heater for less than a gallon so i want to put water in a larger place suitable for my 2nd 25w heater (1-5.5g container /tank). that 2nd 25w heater was intended for the 1g tank i have but he just bites his fins in there. id like to keep the betta in the .5g as that tank is the only he doesnt stess/bite much in normal conditions for the time being. im looking more into 1.5-2gal to float his QT in. i think the kritter keepers here are atleast $10 for the smaller sizes.

You could get a 2gallon tank and make your own divider? Then put it so that it would be only .5 g. Or buy a rubbermaid container From walmart.
