I started out with no snails in my aquarium until I started buying plants. I figured I would eventually get some which didn't bother me. Now, I have an explosion of snails. They are small but there are a lot of them. I don't mind because they help keep my tank clean and algae free. But I do have to weed some out though which I will do when I clean it today. I also have to fill up my smaller tank so that I can move my male guppies. They have been harassing my females and my older female stays hid all the time. She's a little more fragile and I worry about her. I have enough babies for now so off the guys go to a new place. As soon as the cloudiness from the meds are gone and I rearrange a few things, I will take a picture of my aquarium. I'm trying to find a recipe online for fudge. It's hard to find an easy one using sugar and not condensed milk or marshmallow cream. I just have to keep looking. I did have a really easy one about 5 years ago that was almost foolproof but I can't find it.

I just started back in May. I don't have that many fish. I'm trying to save up for another aquarium. I have 6 guppies and about 20 fry. I would have had more but my plants were new and they didn't a lot of places to hide. I'm doing for pleasure but have thought about selling. What about you? So fat, I only gave mutts. I want to make sure I know what I am doing before buying the expensive ones. I would love to chat with you.

@hardtimes1958 I love it too! How many aquariums do you have? I'm in a predicament right now. I have one little mama guppy that is not doing well. For some reason, some of them were picking on her and I could tell it was stressing her out. The other day, I noticed she wouldn't or couldn't swim. She swims maybe a fourth of an inch from the bottom. I moved her in a 5 gallon by herself. I feel like she is dying but she is trying so hard to live. It breaks my heart. I don't know if she is in pain. I bought some clove oil just in case because I read about it online. But with her fighting so hard, I just don't know what to do.
Poor little female guppy I hope she is safe. Here is an old fashioned brown sugar fudge recipes, I do not know if it's what you are searching for, I do not make fudge.

@LadyDuck I don't know. I don't know if she is injured or just getting old. She is still hanging on. She sees me and tries to swim to me but can't. It brings tears to my eyes every time. I don't want to see her suffer. Supposedly, clove oil puts them to sleep. If you put a little more in, they die with no pain. I don't have any. I need to buy some to have on hand. This poor little girl wants to live so bad.

@simone10 I remember when Mom made fudge and it had to be eaten with a spoon because it didn't set right. I think it had to do with it cooking long enough and testing it and all that. Mom had a candy thermometer to help with it.
