    Any ideas on what one can feed these guys? Or if they will even eat like that? I have had one know for about 10 months and in the last few weeks to few months he has shrunk to about half his size. Plus his legs are much thinner. Now about 4-5" across I assume it is from lack of food as...

    My LR is infested we just happened to change the water because the nitrate spiked. We saw one then we saw several. We decided to take out the piece of LR they were hiding in and you would not believe what came out and what we tweezed out and what just flushed out under cold fresh water. All...

    hey all... I noticed some type of snail critter crawling on my back glass today. It's definitely not a snail that I've purchased, and I haven't added any new LR in over a year, so I was really surprised to see him. His movement is different from that of any snail I've ever seen, as he almost...
