    Here is the thread about that trap I mentioned. Very easy to put together, and apparently works very well:

    You are only a few days away man. Thats great! Trites are the quickest phase. Sometimes unnoticed even because it can happen in a day or less.

    Awesome, I'm so ready to begin stocking...I can't do it all at once, though, haven't won the lottery yet...I've PM'd you about my stocking choices, and I've mentioned them on this thread too...what would YOU get first, Sandz?

    I have to be completely honest here...although I desperately want some marble hatchets, I am afraid they may not be the best choice for me, for a couple of reasons:

    1. They are known jumpers, though some here have mentioned they have no problems with would-be escapees

    2. I am going to be a bit anal when it comes to keeping this tank clean, and I think water changes will include removing the WHOLE lid just to get at all the nooks and crannies with the siphon vac...there's no way I can do this by just lifting the hinged front part of the lid..and, when I want to move or fix things placement-wise after the water is down...I haven't posted a recent pic, but I've done some re-arranging lately, plant and rock wise, that is so much easier with the whole lid off of the tank...it's easy to give the lid a wipe-down while it's off, too

    Everyone welcome to chime in, the more the merrier

    Re: snails. These creep me out, but I have had total success with assassins when I have had pond snails. I now have assassins breeding in one tank that I can move around. I don't see them too often and their numbers stay small as you need both male and female for breeding. Pond snails are gone from any tank I have assassins in.

    But the Malaysian Trumpet snails are the most absolute worst curse of all. I know a lot of people love these guys - sorry to those folks - but if you find one of those, there are probably tons more hiding in the substrate. Fortunately I have only one tank infested with these (hundreds of them) and over the Christmas holidays when my son is home from school to help I'm hoping to tear this tank apart and start all over again. I added 5-6 assassins to this tank also and there is no relief. They cover the tank walls mostly at night. I usually have some veggie in here for the BN pleco and there's rarely a snail on this. I've never had luck trapping.

    The other snail assassins seem not be effective against are the tiny, flat ramshorn snails. I have some of these but they are not too bad and easy to pick out and squish. And I have a nerite in a couple of tanks and the assassins don't bother them either.

    So if you have pond snails, you're in luck as the assassins will destroy them. But MTS - watch out.

    Yeah, that may work, thanks steeler....I guess ANYTHING that would cover part of the tank would work...poster board, etc...I would just be terribly upset if one of them jumped out because of my carelessness...but I think it was talldutchie who mentioned that HIS marble hatchets never have tried to jump out, so I don't know
