    Nylon coated stainless steel wire -- safe?

    I'm looking to create little 'caves' of minI Christmas moss. My idea is to make a braided ring of stainless steel wire and then make a dome-shapped frame with more braided wire. I have found stainless steel wire at my local craft store, but it has a 'nylon coating'. Does anyone have experience...

    Found these in filter sponge

    Yes - it is alive - I had to do a video and then screen capture to get the photo. The video is definitely skin crawling worthy.

    Ok - I was able to isolate this little guy at 40x magnification. Looks like it is a tubifex worm!

    Found This Snail...

    Many thanks! If more start popping up I will see if my LFS carries assassin snails. This site is a lifesaver! A peace of mind restorer! I've learned so much from reading previous posts and the information Fishlore provides for all the different species!

    Found This Snail...

    I just saw a post about clown loaches being a possible solution to help get rid of a possible snail outbreak? The tank I found the snail in houses my dwarf cories and a BN pleco. Would a clown loach help/be a good idea to add to that tank? Is there another solution other than just removing them...

    Just found this snail in my tank. The last addition to this tank was two female guppies (from another one of my tanks) about 3 months ago. This tank has been established for almost a year....
