    I have an off-subject question.How do you keep that tank so clean in front of that window?

    That tank has always been pretty easy to keep clean. It’s my emergency/quarantine tank. Right now it’s only got one fish in it, Mr. Bully who decided to attack all my young discus fish. He’s in a 3-4 month time out so he can forget the big tank, the young discus can get accustomed to the 75 gallon tank and then I’ll reintroduce him to the big tank.
    As for tank cleaning I use nerite snails. They can’t reproduce in fresh water, their eggs require salt water to hatch. But as adults they live in fresh water to slightly brackish and they aren’t very picky about temperature either but they are algae eating demons.
    They live about 2 years, at the biggest size are maybe an inch an a half. There are a few varieties. I’ve got olive nerite and zebra nerite.
    You can buy them on ebay.
    In my 75 gallon aquarium I’ve got about 40 of them. I’ve not had to clean the glass in 5 years.

    Killer! Beautiful tanks.I always heard the snails get up in and block filters.I don’t think they would survive in my Angel’s water,you think?

    Thank you.

    I’ve got 2 HOB filters on that 75 gallon tank, the intake pipes have slotted pipe pieces at the bottom so that nothing can get up into them.

    So far I’ve never had a snail get into any of my filters.

    I’m not sure what your water parameters are for angel fish.

    But I used to have a low salinity brackish tank that was 72 degrees and the snails did great in that.
    My 75 gallon tank is all freshwater and it’s 84 degrees and the snails are happy in it as well.

    I’ve had them in tanks with gravel, bare bottomed or with sand. They do well in all but do seem to prefer the sand a bit more than the others.
