I don't know how fast they grow actually. I have too many to keep track of. My few bladder snails in my new tank are pretty much adult size in a week from what I can tell.

Whoever said shrimp have low bioload, mine have an almost constant stream of poop coming out. xD

It's true, they poop and eat. And supposedly breed.

I should really be doing water changes on *pauses to count* 11 betta tanks. But it's in the 90's and I just did a change on the 29gal and changed two litter boxes. Someone tell me they'll be okay till tomorrow.

*drags self off to get rolling trashbin and siphon hose*

It's not the emptying that's a pain, it's having to fill them all back up carrying water in a 1 gallon jug from the bathroom.

Silverfang, I'm so sorry about Aphrodite. :( *hugs*

I forgot to get assassins again when I went to the LFS that has them. I want those plant-eating snails outta my 20gal!!!! Not to mention there are now more snails than fish in the 29gal. Ooooh Sparky, wanna treat?

I wonder if he would. Probably not! How's he doing! Tell him to use his powers so I don't fail the electricity part of my exam tomorrow! D:

Hey LAki, want a pile of pond snails? They must have been on the outside of the breeder box and when they hatched they crawled inside for the food.

Gotta be a dozen or so in there alone. And I can get them out easily with my trusty turkey baster.

LOL. Sparky is sending electric waves your way now. He's doing well. Much more active than I expected. Still won't go in his white pipe tunnel. Instead, he crams himself under th fake mangrove root decoration in the corner. I got the filter intake out and put a log of cholla wood in for him to push around. When he's not in that corner, I'll put it back on the filter but since he's spending a lot of time hiding there, I don't want to stick my hand in and startle him. "AAAGH! Big hand coming my way! ZZZT!"
