    I am but b4 I add any more fish, I have to wait for the water conditions to go back to where they should be . Ammonia and nitrite were too high but now the ammonia has gone down some. Gonna check again today. B4 the ammonia had gone down to 1.0 but the nitrite was still high at 2.0 bad I know but I have been doing lots of water changes first 20%, then 25%, then 30%, and then 10% and I will check again to see if I need to do anymore. Also, added amquel to the water. I just don;t want to add more to the tank and have them die on me form toxicity, btw my other fish are doing fine, but my cory has some strange lookin lump on her underside I cant figure out what though. I have already asked a question about it in another fish forum, waiting to hear back, about the problem. if any, Oh, and I will post some pictures since I took only about 100+ photos, no really I did. went a little camera crazy with my dad;s digital camera.

    Glad to see you aren't adding any more fish. Yes the tank needs to be cycled before adding any fish but you are doing right with the water changes. When they both get to 0, you are ready.

    Yup, they are dropping but not many are making it, my severum likes them.:9: If they make it, they make it, I will give them to my LFS as store credit, if they don't, it is a good treat for my fish.

    Darkstar, have you decided what you're gonna add?

    I did some reading, and while it's true that a particular species of apple snail can reach up to 6 inches, it's not the mystery snail variety. All mystery snails are a type of apple snail. But not all apple snails are mystery snails.

    The scientific name for mystery snails is Pomacea bridgesii.

    Pomacea maculata is another type of apple snail. This particular type can grow to be 6 inches.

    Hope this helps.
    Just remember, even though a mystery snail can only get to the size of a golf ball, it does create a lot of waste.

    Thanks for letting us know!

    I actually did just expand my snail family. I bought one baby light striped purple snail on Aqua Bid and received 2! So I have 3 mystery snails in one 10 g just for them.

    You should see all the poop that these babies create!!!
