    This is a cool National Geographic film documentary about Lake Tanganyika: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xqy4p7 It's a little old and not exactly HD, but still a neat film.

    A 40 gallon but it dont hold fish. Littlefoot the spoiled bearded dragon resides in this one we need to move up to a 70 gallon but he spends most of his time hanging with us or the dogs.

    I have had a few aquariums with fish but found it to much work. however I have one in the garage that holds crappie minnows for ice fishing. Nice looking tank you got there Joe.

    Littlefoot is my buddy!

    Well it's been 3 days since my son's snail moved. I think it's dead. I cleaned the tank yesterday and it had a fowl smell. I think that's it for aquatic life for a bit.

    We've had bad luck keeping snails. Seems every time we change out the water, they die. Which is a shame because they are far more interesting to watch than the fish.

    Do you use any kind of chlorine/Chloramine remover water conditioner when you changed the water? Was it the same temp as the previous water?

    The reason i ask is that most of us "aquarist" have had more than one occasion where we have been inundated with unwanted snails we couldn't kill with 3 hammers.

    Al, that looks great man. Good job!

    I always use Prime with any water. Even topping off.

    Here is a nugget in case you were unaware.
    Seachem Safe is the same but dry powder. It is far more concentrated and about 1/16 of a teaspoon is good for a 75 gallon tank. I always use 1/8 teaspoon because it is easier to measure. I will warn you when I would buy it would be anywhere from the 1/2 kilo to the 4 kilo tub. The best thing to do is put it in mason jars and put the lid on tight VERY TIGHT. It has 10x the odor the Prime does but is vastly cheaper and last a very long time. I was buying Prime by the 4 liter jug when my supplier turned me on to it since i was using so much for my discus and fish room.
    Per my Seachem rep alway dose for the entire aquarium volume UNLESS you add it to the water before you put the water into the aquarium. Many people only add the dose for say their 50 gallons of water changed in a 100 gallon tank. Due to the added organics in the aquarium it will be unable to effectively work as it should at the half dose if added to the aquarium after you changed your 50gal.
    Make sense?


    One last thing many people try to take distilled water and add safe and create Prime and keep it in liquid form.
    Unfortunately you cannot do that because the stabilizers that seachem uses to make prime are not in the dry form of safe so you have to keep it in the dry form but it is very good and last a long time and it's very economical.
