    Will my new stow away Nerite snails (i think) eat my anacharis?

    they are probably pond/bladder snails then.

    I got some anacharis from Petco and looks like they included some free snails without my knowledge. Will they eat the anacharis?

    Brown Recluses all over my house...would I be able to call an exterminator....

    They are definitely brown recluses. Also do you know where I could buy a eucalyptus oil spray?

    I was wondering about Eucalyptus? There is evidence of it having insect/spider repelling properties. Could this be a good excuse to splurge on some Yankee Candle Wax tarts?

    Yes they are very bad in this part of the country. To the point where they are probably over tolerated. Everyone fears Black Widows, but the reality about Widows is that they are mostly up in a corner in a web for the majority of their life out of your way, but Brown Recluses are roamer hunters...

    Brown Recluses all over my house...would I be able to call an exterminator....

    Wow, thanks for all the advice everyone. Can't believe I got so many responses. I live near Memphis TN in a semi-rural area... so they are very common pests. I mostly see them in my hallway which has the ladder to my attic in the ceiling. This is where I assume they are coming from. I didn't...

    ...and have aquariums at the same time? I hear that they use a lot of volatile chemicals that "bomb" the entire house. I don't know how I would remove my aquariums to do that in my situation.

    What are your favorite genre of fish and why?

    I'll add in on my own topic. I think blue rams. They are personable, intelligent, and colorful

    What are your favorite genre of fish and why?

    I thought I would ask this since there are so many types of fish in the trade and an infinite about of niches that are popular. By genre I loosely mean category or type, not necessarily scientific subsets. You could even name a specific species...

    Platy eats too fast for my other fish to catch up.

    My Blue Ram has been interactive and voracious. No more problem, it simply took some time.

    Platy eats too fast for my other fish to catch up.

    The main one I'm concerned about is my very shy new blue ram. I can't keep feeding multiple times a day bc my platy will literally explode. Also I think a baster will scare him off.

    Can Java Moss grow through mesh?

    How long without it growing through the mesh should I be concerned? I want to check it at some point to make sure it isn't rotting.

    10 gallon stocking

    Guppies (like my platy) are notorious for outcompeting others at dinner. I'm not sure how to rectify this.

    Platy eats too fast for my other fish to catch up.

    I think his tankmates are becoming malnourished because he gobbles up so much of the food before they. My neons and blue ram are much slower to react to food and don't gobble near as fast. My platy is a monster.
