Watch they appear when you least expect it.

And this will be my next endeavour (if I can find it somewhere):

Microsword (Lilaeopsis brasiliensis)

I also wanted to try those two sea grass types. But apparently they need a lot of light and a deep enough (8 inches) substrate:

Turtle Grass (Thalassia testudinum)

Image

Manatee Grass (Syringodium filiforme)

Yay! One of my babies! They're alive!

Super easily spooked. After the smallest vibration it went hiding again :smile:

Once again a baby snail is floating on the water surface. But the cool thing is that it actually eates the bacteria film. I observed it for a while. It seems to be quite normal. I always thaught they get trapped by the surface tension and have to be rescued. But they seem to do fine.

(Image quality is rather poor)

And I also have to say they are breeding very happily... you guys warned me :smile:

My nerites are too good at their job. Now all the algae film is gone :smile: :nerner: Maybe NOW they will get rid of the hair algae.

Pull all the long bits out by hand and they should help a bit.
