  1. My husband brought me home 2 anubias, 3 ghost shrimp and a Nerite snail, as a surprise. I've never had shrimp before, and the only experience I have with snails was about ten years ago when someone gave me a tank, and there were hundreds of tiny dark snails everywhere in it. I plan to put them in with my two ranchu's. The tank is a 36G, has the two GF (both about 1 inch long), two anubias, and two crypts. How long do I need to quarantine the shrimp and snails? They are in a 1G tank with the new anubias plants at the moment. I read that shrimp like to have a very planty environment with a hidey-space. I have a cave in the the 36G that I was thinking about possibly just putting the anubias plants in front of the two entrances? That way the shrimp could make that their home. Thoughts and suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!
  2. My surviving horned nerite (the other one died) must be quite healthy. She's laid a path of eggs all over my tank for the first time, and WOW they really bug the heck outta me. Luckily, my tiger nerite has never laid any. This makes me wonder... How often do your nerites lay eggs? What do you guys do to scrape the eggs off the corners of your tank? Where the sealant is... I don't want to remove the sealant. Also, does anybody know how to distinguish males and females outside of mating time?
  3. My two nerites have been doing a pretty good job of eating the algae and diatoms in my tank so far, but in the big picture, they still haven't really made much of a dent! It's been really fun seeing their little bite mark trails all over though, and that tells me they are working away at it. I ended up scrubbing the algae off the front glass for a better view of my fish. Then a week later I scrubbed the algae off the bottom too, since I noticed the snails never really went on the bottom of the tank anyways. I noticed that the zebra nerite in particular had spent a few days cleaning off the overflow box and then one of the filter outflow pipes. But the second outflow pipe hadn't been discovered by either of the snails yet, so it was just covered in thick diatoms. It was driving me crazy! So finally today I picked up the zebra snail and placed him on the diatom-covered outflow pipe. He got to work right away, and within a few minutes he had already cleared off one corner of it! I don't actually know if this stuff is diatoms or some sort of algae, or both. My light fixture holds 4 light bulbs and only one is still functional. So I also have my light strip from the 55 gallon tank (in storage) on here too, but that is just a wimpy light. Soon I'm going to get 4 new bulbs for my good light fixture, and hopefully then green algae will start to grow instead of this ugly brown stuff. Anyway, here are some photos of the zebra nerite cleaning the filter outflow pipe!
  4. After a 2 week quarantine during which I changed 100% of the water every day, my snails were finally ready to go in my tank! They have already eaten a lot of algae and diatoms off the glass and no escape attempts have been made even though I don't have a cover on my tank. So far so good. It's a lot of fun to see them making zig-zag tracks all over the glass. This is my tank after letting the algae/diatoms grow for 3 weeks... Sorry about the grainy photos... technical difficulties. lol The red spot snail seems to spend more time near the surface than the zebra one does. The zebra one is always out and about all over the tank floor, but the red spot one seems to prefer the top of the tank. Just an interesting observation, I'm not sure whether it means anything or not!
  5. With everyone going on and on about their snails I had to share mine I've had them(i have two) for a while now and they do tend to hide very well this guy was out and about tending the anubias so I snapped a shot Thanks for looking
