Re: Nocturnal/immobile/lurker

Cycling with pest snails?

Is it ok to cycle a new tank with some pest snails that breeds easily? They produce a lot of bioload. After the tank is done cycling, I can scrap many snails off the tank and put in one puffer to quarantine him. After 4 weeks, the tank can become its permanent home and the puffer will eat any snail ...

Re: Trying to fit puffers in my 16 gallon tank

How about SG for the new water? Do I just add the water (lets say 8 gallon change) to the tank and then put in the proper amount of sea salt (enough for the new 8 gallons of water)?

I have been using my aqueon water changer and have gotten water transferred back and forth very easily. What will I have to do differently during water changes with bracki...

Re: Trying to fit puffers in my 16 gallon tank

Should I not even consider putting one of these in my 16 gallon? What if I really decorate my tank for the puffer to explore and the bottom of the tank will...
