Hya swallowed a snail / Ben wonderful / Sylvia got a check-up


Well....  Hyacinthe swallowed a snail, went into convulsions, and nearly made me cry, I was so worried.  And apparently he has worked it out, 'cause he's fine now.  Oh, the snail was one of four or so that came with the plant I got for him (a live one!  Not an ugly fake) today.  I certainly hope he learned his lesson.

Ben is so wonderful.  He took me to El Ranchero's today.  I'm sleepy now, so not terribly coherant.  But I feel loved.  Oh yeah, and we had sex during his lunch break today.  He was happy.  ;-)  I was relaxed.

And Sylvia got a checkup today; she is soooooo much happier.  And tomorrow afternoon Colby is going to put the stereo in!  Wow I'm tired.  G'night.


feelings: loved

You should always wash live plants before you put them into the tank. IF you find anymore snails in the tank, squish them. He will at least eat the meat of them and not choke. Also you do not want the tank to be overrun by snails that produce asexually.

Re: Plant
Do not presume to teach ME about snails, madam! I used to research them all the time and write about them. Actually, they can reproduce on their own, but seldom do. Each snail has both male and female organs, but they usually still do it with another snail in order to reproduce. Plus, they are usually very slow to reproduce -- it's not like rabbits. In six months I might have two more, but if new ones come around I'm sure Hya won't let them live to grow up. And they'll eat any gicky stuff... I'm hoping they'll eat the food that Hya drops, too. We'll see.

And I'll never squish them! I love snails!

Ok, don't have a cow. I am sure you know a lot about them. But even if one snail is introduced you will have a tank that is overrrun in no time. One of the petsmart employees told me a story about that. The only reason I have regular snails is for my 2 dwarf puffers that I acquired today. They are so adorable :) . THere is a really good website that has a forum that I frequent. It is good for beginners to the experts.

You might want to get a mystery snail. THey can not reproduce without a partner. Although they do grow to 1.5 inches, they are extremely cute. But they are kinda freaky too with their mouths when they get bigger. They keep the tank cleaner than the little snails too. I have a gold mystery snail and my tank is really clean thanks to him and pleco. You could always get ghost shrimp too. They are freaky looking but will get up the gunky bits. The only reason I have the ghost shrimp is becuase they are dinner for the puffer fish. Thinking of gunky bits, how many pellets are you feeding Hya each meal time? With a betta you should feed twice daily and only three pellets each time and maybe a snack somewhere along the span of the day
