Hello

Great to see some, they seem to be very hard to get hold of, where do you get yours from?

they look great, what kind of conditions are you keeping them in, anything special?

That's great :D Where'd you get these little guys? I've been keeping my eye on the sulawesi online. I saw sulawesi snails at my lfs, but never shrimp.

I have snails and shrimps.... all from M/A Crowland....
I have yellow headed, white spotted and have seen yellow spotted and white blotch snails there recently....
I bough them out of there shrimps though with these 3....
I dont do anything special with them .... although i left my tank 4 weeks with no wc so the gh and kh would drop, now when i do water changes they stay fairly low but the ph is kept up with a few shells in the filter :)
I am confident that i could aclimatise them to my normal tap water but i have no need to...
