    Getting assasins here is a problem, for some reason LFS just dont seem to have them

    yeah assasins would eat them, you could also dose copper but don't know what it would do to the plants.

    Well like AL10 said, if you want to get rid of them and you don't have anything else in there that might be hurt, you could dose some copper based medication. That'll get them. Or just plug a hair dryer in and throw it in the tank. ..... No...... don't do that. LOL
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Haha yeah I've seen plants at petsmart with snail eggs all over them and java ferns and anubias burried in the soil. I hate how they don't even try to take care of there plants, bu I still buy from them when I need stuff(my mom says my lfs is too far)
