well bath went down well

my butterfly was packaged insanely well. at least 4 bags? i had trouble cutting through them all with my little cheapo 99 cent store saltwater stained scissors lol. i'll get a pic in a bit, but he doesn't seem shy at all

on the bad side, my mom ordered a biota mandarin (second attempt) and it did not make it. it was barely alive, but apparently didn't last more than a few minutes in her tank :(. i feel bad, she desperately wants a mandarin, but her tank is just a 32 gallon biocube so i told her the only way it'd maybe work is to get a biota one so she can at least supplement other food. not sure she'll want to try it again

he/she seems to be doing well, definitely an eating machine

(don't mind the amalgamation of algae/cyano going on :) )

i think i killed that snail in the front with h2o2 too. i've just been dosing the tank with about 8 mL at night (40 breeder). h2o2 seems to be a winner for glass biofilm algae, but it is not helping me with the hair algae/cyano

I’m noticing that the snails don’t seem to deal with the peroxide very well long term. It seems to make them sluggish and weak - I’m manually flipping over quite a number of them every day, and I’m sure they’re slowly dying off. I don’t mind replacing them when this is finished, but I think it’s something I’ll mention as a caveat in my final assessment.

have you noticed any issues with hermits? i think i'll grab a few for that tank if they hold up under h2o2 better

not trying to make that into a DT or anything, it's kind of my long term observation/prazi/feed GC food/h2o2 type tank, but i'd rather it's not overrun with algae and what not lol

No, the hermits seem fine, and I have the larger halloween hermits as well as the smaller blue legs. It's just the snails that seem to slowly fade away.
