Trying to help daughter with new aquarium and dying fish
Oh no! I don't know anything about snails, but when I was like 12 years old I had a twenty gallon tank in my room and I had a snail like that named Gary.
One day the same thing happened to Gary. He just disappeared and left his shell behind. When I picked the shell up, a small wrinkly pink thing about the size of an m&m tumbled out of it, my 12 year old mind just assumed that Gary died and left his brain behind, but who can really say?
I don't know if that story does anything for you but it's the only contribution I had for the subject.

i was asked awhile back (maybe by gronlaura?, can't remember now) for a recent pic or vid of Lauren's 10 gallon, and I am finally getting around to it...I have had kind of a hard time getting her platys to eat their veggies, but I think they have finally figured out what to do with the squash now...here's proof, in a shaky and fuzzy little vid
Notice the larger, pale-ish looking platy...he/she is kind of deformed looking, almost looks like it has a hunchback or something, and little or no dorsal fin...anybody know what may be going on here?....he seems to act just fine, eats well, plays well with others, etc, just kind of funky looking...we call him "Hunchy", LOL
Also, I did not realize that guppies would like squash until now, but you can see the 2 getting a little bite now and then
Thanks for watching!

very sweet. It's the perfect tank for a little girl - including the pink gravel :o)

Thank you fishmommie, I appreciate it...to be honest, now that Lauren has seen my tank, she is leaning toward a more natural look, so the pink gravel's days may be numbered, lol...I am thinking after the first of the year of getting her a 20 long and kind of starting over, and she is all for it....she really likes bettas, so that is what the 10g may eventually house

Yes, it was I who requested a video of Lauren's tank. Her fish look very healthy (I agree with FM and wouldn't worry about Hunchy). The guppies are really pretty (sorry guppy boys, handsome just doesn't sound right for a guppy). I like the little house with the waterwheel and agree that a change to a more natural gravel color would complete the tank nicely. It's a great looking 10 gal tank!
I bet she would do a super job with a 20 long.

I'm siding with Lauren here - don't be making fun of Hunchy!!! Poor fish will get an inferiority complex.........
My long finned zebra danio "Shortee", who had her tail bitten off, developed a slight hump as her tail grew back. It doesn't slow her down at all!

Hey, we'd love to see a pic of "Shortee" if you can get him to be still long enough!
