Macranda & Snails
I am wondering what makes a plant like Red Macranda (sp) turn green. I
have a 4ft heavily planted tank inside with good and appropriate growth eg
red plants red, green plants green (light 168w) and a bathtub outside
filled with offcuts of the aquarium plants in pots with sand/laterite. The
tub is in a shaded position in the yard, but there is a lot of light almost
all year round.
Q. When I plant the offcuts outside the resultant growth is lush and green
- even for the Macranda. Is it missing anything? light? fertilizer?
Also: I have two Malaysian Trumpet Snails (I think) in my tank for over a
year. They are big and yellow. But I am suprised that they have never
laid eggs or had any offspring. Is there anyway to get them to breed. I'm
presuming they are unisexed and you don't need a male and female.
