    sorry, i should have clarified.
    I buried it like I could plant a normal plant.
    Just dug it down to 'anchor' it with the substrate.
    The rest of the moss is attached via fishing line to the driftwood.

    I got heaps of the stuff, so I laid it on the wood, wrapped the fishing line and tied it off.

    But in regards to the shrimp-kinda a waste of money. ALL my fish thought it was chow time for those fellas.
    I think I have a handful left out of the initial 'welcome' :(

    with shrimp, you might want to start out with a shrimp tank. that way if their numbers dwindle in one tank, the other tank can be harvested for a few lol

I see only assassins and the one nerite.

    I have another tank with trumpet snails now - seems like thousands, and I hate them worse than pond snails. I was picking off 50-60 just from the tank walls during water changes which I do at night. I've started moving a few assassins to this tank within the last couple of weeks and I have a nerite in here also. No problems with the nerite here either. I'm going to be upping the army of assassins as there are still hundreds of these trumpet snails in here. I'm not worried about the nerite.
    What kind of Nerite are you talking about here? I've tried putting Horned Nerites in my main tank with Assassin Snails, thinking they were too big for the Assassins to tangle with... The Horned Nerites (which, admittedly, are some of the smallest Nerites) bit the bullet pretty quick. Didn't take longer than a few days for the Assassins to make a quick dinner of them.

    This is exactly what I'm doing now. I tried RCS in my main once before, and they quickly became a snack for my Golden Wonder Killies... Now I've turned my Rabbit Snail breeding tank into a Rabbit snail + RCS breeding tank, so I can harvest the RCS and test them out again in greater numbers (in addition to having better coverage in the main tank now). ;P

    Saves money... and worst comes to worst, your fish get a nice, healthy snack.

    Thanks, SueD. Sorry I just saw this. Would seem to me if the assassins don't bother the nerites the mystery snails wouldbe safe too. I may give them a try. appreciate it. sorry mizzou for a slight hi-jack.

    Speaking of a slight hi-jack...what is this alum stuff you guys are talking about?...I have 2 java ferns, a moss ball, and 10 RCS coming from theshrimpfarm.com in the next few days...do I need to treat the plants before putting them in the tank?...I sure don't want an infestation of ANY kind of snail...I don't yet have a QT tank, unfortunately...when school lets out in the next 2 weeks, my wife is bringing a 5 gallon (had hermit crabs) from her classroom, that I'm going to set up as QT

    Just to let you know, I did the same thing when adding RCS to my 55... but a few found hiding spots and I would guess I have 20-30 in there now. I think the german blues just learned that they can be food, but I'm not too worried either way. I care more about the GBR, so if what I have been doing is taking the "culls" from my RCS tank and tossing them in the 55. If they make it, they make it, if not.. they're snacks

    Thanks Hardy, i'm in the same boat there, just going with the flow to see what happens.

    But no worries on the hijack.
    Slap Happy-no need to QT plants or anything, I just rinse them off really well in a bucket of warm tap water and rub them down to make sure I 'shake off/rub off' the snails.
    Then I inspect them as much as possible to find the snails.

    So far that method has worked and I don't have any snails.
