    Don't you LOVE mystery snails? Honestly. I find them fascinating.

    I SO want to put the swirly yellow shelled one from the 10 gallon I've picked out into the 40B, but afraid it's just not quite big enough yet to outrun the assassins
    Cindy & Matt - how much air space do you have at the top of your tanks with the mystery snails? I would love to add 2 to the 29 gal with the diamond tetras, but everything I have read says you need 2 inches of space at the top or they can drown.

    I have maybe 1/2"...I've never heard they'd drown, but I do know that's not enough space for them to attempt clutch laying

    Where do they lay their clutches? As long as I don't have to lower my water level, I think I will add 2 to the diamond tetra tank.

    I don't leave any space. I fill the tank up. Always have and have always had mystery snails in my tank. I've got one now that I grew from a hatch that is as big as a ping pong ball. have had others grow even bigger.

    They lay the clutch of eggs above the water line - most often on the bottom of the lid. Sometimes it's tucked up under the lip of the tank. If I find a clutch there, I'll generally lower the water level a tad so it doesn't get wet from anything but humidity from the tank.

    The "only" clutches we've ever had (at least 4) were laid on the inside of the original plastic kit hood that is on the 10 gallon right now...that is about to be replaced by a glass lid and LED lighting (guess which one)

    I'd estimate the distance between that concave "hood" and the surface of the water to be at least 1 1/2", when the tank is full to the trim with water

    Yeah, this is all new algae growth in the last week or so...I haven't minded much since I'll be getting some otocinclus tomorrow, for the first time

    This is the Cladophora algae I've seen the little guys munch upon/dig through in some of the cool vids you guys have provided me..I actually like the look of it, TBH...in moderation....and it's not the only algae in my tank, my fault, I admit, lights on too long each day, need a timer, etc etc etc...but they're not going to go hungry anytime soon in my tank

    Can't wait to get some otos tomorrow!
