Hmm so is one better off just using very fine gravel? And how bad is it for the filter? I mean it sounds like it would be VERY bad but I'm kinda new to this so maybe not?

I doubt the slow intro would help. From my understanding its the fins on the male guppies that get the beta's all wound up. So what I think would happen is the beta would fin nip until the guppies died. However I'm so NOT an expert thats just what I think would happen form research I've done.

Almost looks like an albino version of the previous mentioned type...but either way it's def very close. Same markings though the original pics are for sure lighter. Same head and same fin placement and tail look.

Oh I know mine love snails too lol. However mystery snails have a shield most snails to not also they get pretty big I was thinking maybe to big for the clowns to want to eat. I mean I love steak but I'm not gonna go chomp on a cow :)

Loach vs mystery snail?

Does anyone know if my clowns would eat mystery snails? I know they have a kinda of protective shield over there hole when they are inside but what if the clowns "sneak" up on them? Is that even possible? I want to add some to my tank but not if they will be clown food.

LOL I know it sounds crazy but every rainy season, as much as they are in southern California, I spend a bit of time saving earthworms from drowning and or drying out on the sidewalk. So therefor I can't bring myself to turn around and chop them up. I love all Gods creatures....well I try but fleas ...
