Necessities required to QT Nerite snails
I'd like to get some nerites but of course want/need to QT them. What do I need to do this? Do they have to go into a cycled tank or can I put them in a heated tank and do small water changes? What it there's not enough algae in that tank to eat? Do I get algae wafers? Other foods they like?
Once I'm able to put them into the main tanks, there will be plenty of algae for them. I thought about starting to grow some algae but not sure how to do that.
Also, I have three 10 gallons. One with a king betta with it to himself and two that are/will be divided between 4 guys. How many nerites can I put into each 10 gallon?
