    Agreed, stomatella. You did an awesome job getting those pictures! A lot of ID requests are a spec and some fuzz on a rock in the back of the tank :) well done!

    No worries on that. I've easily got a couple hundred in my nuvo 20. They don't really stick out until at night when they gather on the glass. Reminds me of street sweepers in the city.

    I was going with Mongolia hoards. But snails work as well

    @sheyandpete that is one sick looking art piece above your tank. In addition you have a great looking tank.
