Thanks stuart , I would love to see that happen..
Funny thing, I've been EI dosing with thrive plus , label says 1 pump is 2ml.
I decided to measure it, I did it several times to make sure . On my bottle 1 pump was only 1.3 ml. So I had been underdosing the whole time. I started measuring with a 3ml syringe and my tank perked up..

Every morning when the lights come on I see a few snails in the tank which surprises me as I have loaches and they pick them off pretty quickly. However this morning I realize I found a big one they haven't managed to pick off.Any idea what kind of snail this is?

It is a Radix snail (you can tell by their triangular shaped antennae). Physa snails have thread-like antennae. They are both referred to as “Pond Snails”.
