    Raising Kh For Mystery Snails?

    Ohhhhh I see. I'm blanching zucchini for them every day right now and plan on making some snail jello with zucchini baby food. I also work at a pet store so it'll be super easy to get some cuttlebone and stuff. But won't the cuttlebone float? How should i anchor it in my tank? Should I crush it...

    Raising Kh For Mystery Snails?

    I know snails need harder water. I just tested my kH and after 5 drops it turned from blue to yellow which i believe is 85ish ppm. I'm fairly certain this isn't hard enough so I'd like some advice on how to raise the kH in my tank. There is driftwood in my tank which I believe is what lowered it...

    40 Gallon Breeder Ideas (angelfish?)

    My bedroom is slowly turning into a fish room so yes I will have tanks to raise fry if they do happen. I have a tendency to at least attempt to breed any fish I keep, it completely fascinates me.

    40 Gallon Breeder Ideas (angelfish?)

    Maybe I could build a larger sponge filter for the tank. the filters I'm using currently are only really large enough for 20 gallons I believe and I'd rather not do two filters.

    40 Gallon Breeder Ideas (angelfish?)

    Hey there! I've just come into possession of a 40 gallon breeder tank and I'm not sure what to stock it with! I'll be using some established filter media from another tank to cycle it but I also need input on filtration. Should I go with a hob filter? I've only ever used sponge filters because...

    Selling Floating Water Lettuce, Snails

    I'd be interested in a few plants. like maybe 3 or 4! But the shipping is a little steep, could I just get them in a padded envelope wrapped in damp paper towels in a ziplock? Also are there pest snails in your tank? (Ramshorn, MTS, pond)

    Well my LFS is apparently closed on Mondays, can't believe I didn't realize that before. So tomorrow I'll be getting my pellets and plants!
