Wragh! I bought plants from Bob's Tropical Plants and recieved my order the other day. I ordered two anacharis, a java fern and a netrite snail, as well as a small bit of drift wood (and a heat pack for the snail).
The other day, I got an email saying he refunded me a dollar...hm. He claimed he couldnt ship the wood "safely" What? Oh well. He bumped up the heat pack to a 72 with the price difference.
I was soooo excited to get my stuff!! :DDD
...I got it all in a nasty bag, smushed together, with my snail in an even smaller bag inside. Eww. But oh well, yaaayyy! I thought.
I put these plants into my critter keeper by themselves and spotted a number of unwanted critters on them! (All too small to photograph) There were very very small creatures (dark colored) that looked like spiders, and others that looked like tiny ticks! Ew! There are also super small snails, a few of them. Im nervous about them; I dont want them to infest my tank!! DX
I also recieved an extra snail.. Possibly a nice gesture, but I ordered ONE for a reason! Agh! He's black and similar to my olive netrite, and will be living with Dan in his ten gal :c
I washed them off in warm water repeatedly and put them in my 1.5 (which is QTing the two remaining tetras and snails...) and STILL had a nasty creature! It was like a slug, clearish white and like a cm or two long. :( Ergh.
My java fern was a wreck. Like, demolished. Eaten away almost completley! WTH?!
Im nervous that somethings may have spread into my big tank with Alle. The whole seeing that sluggy thing after washing them is freaking me out! :( I did a 75% water change and spiohned the gravel like mad.
What should I do about that? Should I do a 100% change and clean the substrate, etc? It'd hurt my cycle :c
Also, anyone know his return/complaint policy? Im gonna send an email with pictures, but dont know what to expect :ccccc
I just wanted Alle to be happy, but wahhhh! :'c Pics to be posted soon.
