Talk to me about ramshorn snails. I bought some because they were pink and I thought they were so cute. I have had them a couple of months now and they have multiplied from 4 snails to about 8-10. People keep warning me to get rid of them, saying they will take over my tank and my filter, but so far I am not seeing it. Like I said, after 2 months, I still only have maybe 10 max and I could easily pluck them out and dispose of them if I wanted to. I think my fish eat a lot of the eggs, and I also suck out eggs with a turkey baster when I see them. Do you think it is OK to keep these snails in my tank? Do any of you keep them and have good luck with keeping their population under control over a long period of time? Or am I just setting myself up for long term disaster here? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

The Convict Cichlid has a stocky oval disk shape, with pointed anal and dorsal fins. This is one of the smaller Central American cichlids, with the males only reaching 5 - 6" (13 -15 cm) in length and females a bit less at 3 - 4" (8 -10 cm). They are also very deep bodied so it's easy to underestimate their actual size. They have a general life span of 8 - 10 years, though there have been reports of individuals living up to 20 years.This cichlid has a blue-gray, cream, or blue-lavendar base on the body with 8 to 9 dark vertically running bands. They have a break in the vertical bands in the area behind their head, almost forming a "U" shape. The fins are clearish to light yellow.With in-line breeding there are now several color varieties. The Pink Convict Cichlid or White Convict Cichlid are pseudo-albino varieties that are pink and cream, and lack the characteristic vertical bars. The coloring of the male is monotone while the female will have an orangish patch on the stomach.All cichlids, along with some saltwater fish such as wrasses and parrotfish, share a common trait of a well-developed pharyngeal set of teeth located in the throat, along with their regular teeth. Cichlids have spiny rays in the back parts of the anal, dorsal, pectoral, and pelvic fins to help discourage predators. The front part of these fins are soft and perfect for precise positions and effortless movements in the water as opposed to fast swimming.Cichlids have one nostril on each side while other fish have 2 sets. To sense "smells" in the water, they suck water in and expel the water right back out after being "sampled" for a short or longer time, depending on how much the cichlid needs to "smell" the water. This feature is shared by saltwater damselfish and cichlids are thought to be closely related. pink fish white discus

I agreed overdose on anything is not good. C. Yellow is for color enhancing yellow discus. Many of the pb based Red/Yellow are basically the same fishes only difference is which color enhancers you use. Here's the instruction I've got for C Pink/Yellow:Saprolegnia is a cold water fungus that is usually a secondary infection that grows on wound of some sort, or wherever the fishes slime coat has been depredated. Ulcers or sores, left untreated, are prime incubators of such an affliction. Also when a fish’s slime coat has been disturbed from things such as handling the fish with dry hands, abrasive nets, or when they jump from or are dropped to the ground, this fungus is likely to appear. It usually starts as a white patch, which quickly forms into the tuffty/fuzzy hair like mass. Because it is a secondary affliction, you will need to address the initial cause for a complete cure, but either way you should treat the area of the growth. Swabbing the area with iodine or Debride medicated ointment can do this. In swabbing, you want to be aggressive enough to eliminate the fuzz, as well as any dead or infected skin tissue. This may need to be done on two separate occasions, but I do not recommend more than this. The area or wound will show signs of healing when the outer edge appears white or pink in color. This is due to the fact that these wounds will heal from the outer edge and work in towards the center.
