    Nirite Snails sulking

    Is it normal for new nirites to sulk? Not had them before, other snails ive had over the years have never been fazed when they are added. My 3 are alive but barely moving 2 have been stuck to the glass in the same place since yestersay and the tird has moved about 1cm on a rock all day lol

    Nertile snails with yoyo and kulli loach?

    I’d say nerites are much to big for the majority of loaches to eat

    Nertile snails with yoyo and kulli loach?

    Rather than yoyo’s polka dot loaches (botia kobotai) are a much better choice. I kept them with discus fine a lot more peaceful than yoyo’s and destroy pest snails.

    Bleddy Nitrate test kits!

    As if by magic the nitrate test started working today and pretty much matched the tetra test. Nitrite one still not working tho. I did contact API and they just deny there could be anything wrong with their tests. It’s just users that aren’t happy with the results being quick to blame API. Lol...

    I’m happy to leave it for another couple weeks just wandered if it would be safe to add some amanos and a couple snails to battle the diatoms?

    Help! I Damaged My Tank!

    Hasn’t it just chipped a sliver of glass off tho? Doesn’t look like it’s damaged the seal. I’d be inclined to smear abit of silicone on the inside of that corner and the outside
