    Assasin Snails

    because they dont eat that much, there will probably be live snails in there for them to munch on. As to them eating algae, they dont tend to eat it, but they will nibble on algae wafers and other tablet foods.

    Shrimp and the lunar cycle?

    alot of things can trigger the molting off, but i would stick with a water change or somthing new in the water, although the moon idea is more interesting.

    Hot tap water, deadly to shrimp?

    using hot water for a water change???? i personaly have never found the need to use hot water when doing a water change. 20% of cold water doesn't have much effect on temperature, and my fish kind of love the degree or 2 drop in temp, but like i said just my own opinion.

    Cherry Shrimp Behaviour?

    Should I add MTS?? - Yeay or Nay?

    its a big yayyyy from me, i have them in all my tanks but find it hard to keep them in with my crays. they will stay under water and wont escape. the only reason they would try and leave the water is if there was bad water.

    Malasyan Trumpet Snails

    you dont need to add the snail strong liquid as long as you can maintain a ph above 7 for shell growth, as below will cause shell erosion (sp). and feed caclium foods like green veg. which will help good shell growth.
