    Black Devil Snail hasn't moved for 5 days

Parameters are: PH: 7 Nitrates: 25 ppm Nitrites: 0.5...

    Eggshell calcium supplements

    So ive been worried about my snails getting bad shells, as I have malaysian trumpet snails and bladder snails with a single mystery snail. I worry about this because the last bunch of snails i had were ramshorns and their shells deteriorated pretty fast. I saw online that people used eggshells...

    Thinking About Building A Koi Pond, Don't Know What Kind Of Liner To Use

    Overload Of Guppy And Snail Madness

    I have the same problem with ramshorn snails, just not to that degree. I only see maybe 20 out during the day, but when its night, holy they are EVERYWHERE. My tank is heavily planted and has lots of decor, and the snails seem to hide in there. Also, I got some cories to feed on the eggs...

    How To Lower Nitrate Levels

    I have a bunch of Hygrophila (at least I'm pretty sure they are hygrophila), and they soak up everything in the water like a sponge.

    Goldfish Bowl

    I know I'm suuuuuppppppeeerrrrrr late, but there are these things called aquarium bridges. It uses the vacuum in the upside down tank thing and it connects two tanks by going over them. No need to cut glass, just some pvp pipes should do the trick.
