    While I was getting crickets today I found a 10 gallon tank kit today with a hood that fits 2x 26 Watt CFLs and a small power filter all for $29 so I guess I will get some small colorful fishes to go in with the snails as well. Still gonna try and set it up as semi aquatic and only 1/2 full so there is a sort of "land" portion where I can have some tiny emergent plants and mosses and the snails can come out, lay eggs and stuff. We'll see if the filter has enough power to pull the water up that high, if so the output with splash down over some wood and or slate so hopefully I can get some mosses and maybe a utric growing... This will be fun I haven't done a "fish tank" in like 10 years!

    I have been out of the plant aquarium area for a while. I have never heard of these. So there is some thing that eats malaysian trumpet snails. Wow.

    I got my first MTS from buying live plants. They just appeared one night after dark crawling all over the glass and I had to ask online what they were.

    My baby P. bridgesii apple snails arrived today ordered 10 I got 30 or more and the heat pack was still warm. They can hold astonishingly well to whatever they fix themselves to, how do I get them to move onto my hand or let go so I can take them from where I'm unpacking them and into the terrariums and aquariums? I don't wanna just pull and chance tearing their foot.

    try running water over them ?
    I can never manage to pull my nerites of the aquarium glass above the waterline, but if i splash some water on them i can slide them down.

    I used to have a group of 4 Tylomelania, yellow rabbits to be exact. I miss them a lot, but they ate my plants, so they had to go. I traded them in for some micro danios that I never saw....

    I have red ramshorn and golden apple snails. Here they are, munching on a slice of zucchini.
