    I would stick to the larger water changes even if it is more hassle. For me snails are a pest and almost impossible to get rid of. They lay eggs that are difficult to see and when you think you have got rid of them all, there they are again. Always wipe the glass and remove snails when you see them
    Why me ?

    Yes i agree Steve, i hate these little pest snails! I want them gone out of my beautiful tank. Will wipe glass and keep the tank super clean with large water changes every few days, thanks!

    Hi Sabrina;
    Praziquantel is sold in every aquarium shop ,the price is between $ 22 and $ 32 depends where you buy it ,it is sold as blue planet fluke and tape worm tablet ,it is used to eliminate or reduce fluke it also gets rid of tape worm ,if you use as directed there is no side effect , read the direction of use i am going by memory before buying make sure it eliminates snails.
    good luck.

    Hi guys,
    Just wondering about this young discus that i thought might have fluke. It now seems to be acting strange, It was very skittish yesterday darting around the tank and im pretty sure it jumped out of the water hit the hood and splashed back into the water last night. Its been taring around the tank making the others duck for cover, its also turned darker. I dont know what to do, what could be causing this? And to make matters worse today i had new carpet put in my house, and the guy used a air nail gun which made very loud bangs so i think this added to this fish feeling a bit crazy. Come to think of it all the fish seem to be ducking for cover a lot in the last few days, one second they are up the top of the water, next they are hitting the deck. What could be wrong? Im a bit worried

    I am not sure what it is but most probably some thing to do with water quality ,the last time i saw some thing similar it was spike in nitrite , a general rule when you want to make your fish little bit happier , small water change with temp 1 -2 c higher and add 1 TBS of rock salt or table salt . good luck
