    Snail out of his shell...

    A few minutes ago, my sister noticed that our gold mystery snail had dropped his shell. He was floating at the top of the tank, hanging on to some hornwart. He's still moving a bit, even extending...

    Thanks everyone, for the help! It seems that my betta realized that it was supper time, so somehow dislodges the ant himself. Whenever he hears that little alarm he knows its time to eat. He ate just...

    Okay. Thank you. He never actually caught an ant before, so it kind of freaked me out that his first one bit him instead.

    I think I can sleep a little better tonight, thanks!

    Okay, its been a long time since I was here. My lovely betta has been just fine (aside from his fin-ripping habit) and hasn't given me problems in a few months. So, here is my dilemma...

    Thanks! He looked even better when his fins were still in one piece... As for silly names, he has been dubbed "Soul Train" ("Train" for short).

    Our petco has an aquatics specialist, but he deals with them generally. He knows a little about every one.

    Thanks! I didn't know that the rubbing was Ich-related. I'll be looking that up right now.

    Not bloated, be looks like he's gotten thinner maybe, just a tiny bit. But he doesn't fluff out his fins anymore either so its hard to tell how much thinner he's gotten.
