Can these guys you buy at pet shops be used to help keep tank quality better?
Also what do they eat?
they are quiet messy themselves and they wont last long at all with turtles
True that , hence my lack of turtles hahah.
Messy how as in fecal matter?
both they are just messy, what were you looking to house them with? id advise against putting em with frogs to :O
nah im not
Just thought theyd look cool with our rainbows looking for something to spice up our old fish tank
they can have a tendancy of attacking fish, if you want to use an animal to increase your water quality get yourself some freshwater mussels
dont they make one hell of stink?
Also where would i find these?
you can order various native shrimps and snails off aquagreen also remember that more plants generaly help with water quality
as well as not overfeeding, overfiltration and regular water changes
i used to have a massive redclaw in my tank and it killed almost all my fish. it was fed every few days and they are messy eaters
you can get freshwater mussels in the brisbane river around the fernvale area. just have a dig around anywhere with a sandy bank.
like a fresh water cray on steroids
