awwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!! my sweet little boy built a bubblenest!!! He built one three days after I got him, and hasnt since. I was feeding him and a pellet got stuck near the top of the filter intake...so i went and pulled it out and noticed a couple bubbles nearby...i lean down and look UNDER it and one small, perfect little nest is sitting there underneath the plastic...block. He was swimming around it all proud....pictures later =D

@Hayride Haunter LOVE your new tank! =] I haven't gotten to the end of the thread yet but I lvoed the pics you uploaded! =] Your boy is so pretty and he'll be really happy in his new home! <3 I hope I find one of those kits at a thrift store because they look pretty nice! =]

As for tank mate it depends on the type of snail. Mystery snails are pretty dirty but your average snail is pretty clean as long as you don't overfeed and let them take over your tank! =]

Nerite snails are great options if you only want a few because they only breed in brackis (salty-ish) water! =] They also eat algae off of the glass and any plants that you chose to toss in there! =] You'll most likely have to order them online though. If you do I suggest Aquabid and making sure the seller is from the US! ;]

If you could I strongly suggest picking up some Anacharis, a Java Fern, and an Anubias from the petstore when you go! =] All are great low-light plants and the Anacharis will help with water quality while the other two will just look pretty! ;]

You could also pick up some Wisteria but that's a moderate light plant and may not do well in your tank unless you buy a mini CFL (compact fluorescent bulb, the swirly light bulbs, they now come in miniature size! :D) that's Daylight (rated at 6,500 K(Kelvins)). You'll want to get the lowest wattage you can and possibly an outlet timer (you can find them at any hardware store) so that you can give them 4 hours of light, a 4 hour nap, and then 4 more hours of light! =]

I'd also definitely pick up an AquaClear filter sponge/foam refil pack to baffle your filter. They usually include three sponges and cost about $3.00. I normally get the one for 30 gallons because my filter is a pretty big (5-15 gallon filter) but you could probably get one for 10 or 20 gallons to cover your outflow nicely. =]

I'll post this now and finish reading your thread! =]
