I didnt boil or bleach anything. the tank is only 3 months old and im begining to see small snails. :( I think I may remove and boil my rocks and sand, and do a vinegar test. This is all new to me, (my first tank) im excited to learn and have a nice tank of an all natural enviroment.
Advice: im a new hobbyist
Fish Kept: a few goldfish, cory cats, chinese suckers, fancy guppies, and black mollies
Corals/Plants: 3 potted telanthera, but they arent doing so good.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
About Yourself: i got a 55 gallon tank for free and figured i would set it up, I like natural settings and made my tank from mountain stream material. This is my first tank and im very interested in learning about this hobby.
