All MTS, I lost my ramshorns and bladders in the "Great Curtain Rail Crash of 2010" and haven't replaced them.
I've actually removed about 50% of the snails from that tank, which seems to be able to breed anything that goes in it (guppies, pandas, MTS). :D
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! :D

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Hi Plank. I have some baby guppies and some pregnant females and wanted some general advice on care etc but I don't have permission to PM. If you don't mind would you PM me so I can ask a little advice? Thanks

I don't do very much any more, just feed crushed pellets/granules.
The plants give enough cover so some survive. They balance themselves out after a while to what can survive in the tank.

So if I just leave them the tank numbers will balance themselves?
