yeah that hydra always meddeling in my afairs.was it you who sent them?just here to ruin evrything i have when things are going my way.before i call the captain i have some remedies lined up first of i was told trichogaster species will eat them when overtly hungry as will ghost shrimps when starved.i got both to try this out so we will see.i also have the big guns if that doesnt work and i will go all out chemical and biological if i have to.the hydra must GO!.

so i introduced some ghost shrimps to get rid of the few hydras that were in the tank.after looking for the shrimps and hydra to see how well they did as far as cleaning up the pests i found several guppy fry still left.HAPPY DAY.as the strain is something i am interested in seeing the next gen and i had already seperated the parents so i might not have had another batch of these for a while.now i have to get a pic of the fast moving parents.

man i have had a massive snail outbreak in this tank and i am now employing the use of a snail trap prior to bringing a loach in that may potentialy eat my fry.as you can see things are not so good in the scenery but doing fine as far as fishies...

do snails matter in a nursery? seems like they would just clean uneaten food and keep micro algae cycling?

i suppose the tank looks clean as fara s glass but look at my plants Sad ..i do see your point .i might just move out the snail effected plants to a loach tank and get some less apealing greenery.i didnt think about how i never clean that tank and feed it frequently but i looks crystle.

Yeah they are hard on plants, but that is where I bred snails for the turtles, in my fry tank. And they dont usually eat java moss.
