using nerite snails to control brown algae

Just got 3 tiger nerite snails yesterday to reduce some of the brown algae or diatoms on my aquarium glass. I just finished closing up the top lid excluding my 2 power filter openings to keep my snails from sneaking out the tank. I'm impressed so far from the algae they have consumed. I did a research and nerite snails were the best snails for eating algae and they will not reproduce on fresh water. They are also cute and fun to watch, but poop a lot. Has anyone here have nerite snails, and how long have yours lived or living? I'm fascinated with lifespans of living creatures.

Biggest and longest lived or living blood parrots

Just checking to see what is the biggest blood parrot known from personal experience or rumors? And the same for longest lived or living. This is for regular blood parrots only. I got my 2 bps about 2 yrs ago when they were about an inch and a half.

purple parrot crosses update

Hello Everyone,

I was looking at the stuff on the borders of this site and noticed that article about where did blood parrots come from? Well, one of the pictures is a red headed chichlid. That is the exact shape most of them were. I will have to get a picture of my orange, blue, and black hybred purple parrot X red texas chichlid. Wich has almost no black left on it. just orange and differant shades of blue.

blood parrot X red texas update

Hello Everyone, I still have a couple of those blod parrot hybreds i have been working on. A whille back i got a purple blood parrot and a red texas cichlid to breed, and most of the babys turned out to be normal fishy shaped, and ran from black to metallic blue with ruby red eyes. I have one that is orange, and blue, with some black, wich i expect to fade away. Only two had any kind of parrot shape to them. And overall they tended to be on the eyeball eater side of mean, If you crowd them. I will have to post some more pictures.

Tropical Storm Sandy

With Tropical Storm Sandy headed my way, I am worried about a major power outage in my house for as many as three days. This of course means that my heaters and filtration in my tank with 2 bps will not be working. Is this going to wipe out my fish?:(

Is there anything I can do?
