Hello !
My name is Andrei, but my friends call me Kin.

I found SnailShop, searching for a place to buy Blue Apple Snails, because here in Romania we only have Golden Apples Smile
On SnailShop i saw a link to this forum, so i joined you, because i see you talk about snails.
I'm a huge snail-addict, and i like planted tanks a lot.
A have 2 aquariums that i will show you here.

The first is a 160 liters planted tank, 100x40x40 (Lxlxh)
JBL AquaBasis fertilizing substrate, JBL Manado gravel, mangrove wood, lava rock, black background.
JBL Cristal Profi e700 external filter, with course and fine foam, JBL Micromec and JBL Symec Micro.
Resun 200w Heater, 4x 30w Osram 865 Lumilux fluorescent tube, a total of 0.75 watts/liter and 58 lumens/liter.
Liquid fertilizers : Easy Carbo, DIY Macroelements (PPS-Pro), DIY Microelement (with lots of FE).
CO2 from yeast bottle (the recepie with gelatin, for a more steady reaction)
Plants: Didiplis diandra, Limnophilla aromatica, Bacopa caroliniana, Bacopa monnieri, Eleocharis acicularis, Rotala sp, Rotala sp. vietnam, Rotala macranda, Alternanthera rosaefolia, Ludwigia repens, Ludwigia glandulosa, Blyxa japonica, Staurogyne sp, Stringy moss, Christmass moss.
Fish : A school of 17 Cardinals Tetra (Paracheirodon Axelrodi), A trio of Rainbow Fish (Melanotaenia Bosemani)
3 Cory cats (Corydoras venezuelans), 2 Siamese Algae Eater (SAE), 1 Ancistrus
Lots of Red Cherry Shrimps, and the snail shown in "Snails in pictures" - Kin's SNAIL FARM except the Tylomelania, they are in the second tank.

The second is a nano-tank, for my 2 Tylomelania and there 1 week old baby.
16 liters, 37x17x27 (Lxlxh)
Grey Sand, some rocks (thats about to change with black sand, black stones).
Internal Resun Filter with coarse and fine foam, JBL Micromec and JBL Symec Micro.
Resun 100w heater, and a desk lamp with the colour teperature about 6000k-7000k.
No fertilizers, no CO2. Plants : Cryptocoryne and Anubias nana var. "petite". (very few plants for now).
Fish : After the nitro's cycle will be complete, i am waiting for 5 Pseudomugil Getrudae to come, 2 males and 4 females. And i have the 3 Elephants, a green one, an orange one, and the baby.

So this is me, hello again, nice to be here. I hope you like my tanks, and please pardon my english, it's a bit hard for me since it's not my first language, but i do my best.
Best regards !
