i has staghorn ones too and they really do look lost in a 125L. i have ramshorns (which never seem to go away) and apple snails, there are now "mini" apple snails that dont grow too big, very cute. Watch them for hours. Think apples are more out going then some of the other snails.
I lost a couple to begin with when i first introduced them to the tank. (set up over a year) for no reason. Not sure why they dont like the slightlish change sometimes. and i get the feeling the fish shop i got them from had a different PH to mine.
Got some more and now have 6 which i never...

Completely agree p@h in Brentford, they are rubbish! i foolishly bought some fish a while ago, diseased, horrible, died quickly. Plants can be good if they have just had some stock in. Staff are rubbish apart from "Dave" head guy knows his marine stuff not so much on the tropical.
Ive never before had one got a new fluvel (think thats it) tank a year ago and it has some holes in the back and thats where the buggies get in. Always had a fitted lid normally. Ive only ever found one or two filters bug killers p@h did one for a while doesnt anymore.
