  1. i have half inch diameter stones in mine and my goldfish love to push them around. i definitely think that substrate is a personal choice as you want to make the take appeal to you
  2. Its a zebra nerite. Im just worried because it hasnt moved since i flipped him back over. Im not sure if he's in control of his trapdoor yet. i dont want to fuss with him too much right now just in case he is in some sort of shock. I'm going to check tomorrow in the morning and see if he has moved at all. Its good to hear that they shouldnt die from being upside down! Yea he does it all the time, but again, im not sure how long he was in that position especially since i was gone for practically 9 hours. usually he corrects himself within 30 mins to an hour but yea
  3. So i worked from 11 to 7 today and when i left my snail was fine and scooting around but once i got home i found him upside down on one my floral globe things (ill attach a pic of the tank so you know what im talking about) Im not sure how long he was upside down for and i immediately corrected it about an 1 1/2 hours ago. Im wondering how long snails can stay upside down? He hasnt moved yet at all so im hoping he's just in shock, but yet again im not so sure. not a recent pic but it shows what they are
  4. I just use the regular adult multivitamin. Okay thanks. may have to experiment this weekend! can i use plain gelatin for all the recipes because my local stores dont have it?
  5. what brand of multivitamin do you use?
  6. yes im sure. i was scanning the tank with a flashlight last night and she wasnt moving and this morning when i checked her body was almost half way out the shell. when i picked her up instead of recoiling she didnt move. i did smell a faint nasty smell, so probs are that she was dead. she was the weaker one of the two i got. from what i observed from the short time ive had her she was constantly much slower than my other snail. and she didnt go to the surface as often either?
  7. thanks! im glad we made it through. hopefully everyone else who may have no power make it through as well
  8. the only casualty is that one of my nerite's passed away. it was the smallest one (minnie) so
  9. my power came back on! i had to go to school for my last class, and when i got home around 7 it still wasnt on. my mom read on the consumers energy site that the estimated time that power would be back on in our area was saturday...SATURDAY but luckily about an half hour after she said that it came back on
  10. Lucky! Consumers is still out fixing ours apparently from what my stepdad reports. So hopefully we will be back and running in a couple hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yea the wind outside is horrible so I didn't want to go back out when I got home especially in my itty bitty car lol from looking at u fish with a flashlight the Goldie's are "sleeping" and my betta is hunkered down in the leaves to stay warm. I did manage to warm so primed water and replaced some of the cold with it to keep his water a bit warmer though it may not even have an impact. Hopefully power will be back up tomorrow! *fingers, toes,eyes,and hair all crossed* Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. LOL i would be the same but alas im not in charge of the generator
  13. i hope so too! ill do that right now (gotta keep that 'mmonia down!) and yea i think he will be too, but still my overprotective feels are coming out lol its the goldfish's no food day so they should be fine. from what i can see they are all cuddled into the corner
  14. Oh man! yea it was a helck of a time navigating my way home! im in parchment and my usual way home from work (drake rd and west main) had a lot of trees down, so i had to go downtown but the bi-dock was closed grrrrr. and we have a generator that is hooked up to only our living room and the refrigerator since it can only power so much before it shuts itself down
