Are the glass tubes creating oxygen bubbles?

One is! The other one is just a mini tank so I can monitor the baby snail inside. My snails aren't doing to well at the moment. I'm not sure about the cause.

What type are they? Are they used to brackish water and is your water warm enough for them?

They are spike-tailed trumpet snails. I don't know if they are just chilling but they didn't move much for the last weeks. They are alive tho. Yeah 1.010 and the temperature should not be a problem for them... strange but I might check the temperature. Maybe they need it warmer.

Glad you like it! I'm still tinkering around a little. But I don't want to disturb the Opaes all the time. :upset2:

The new tank with light and floating plants (I'm checking if they'll survive long enough so I can attach them later on) :blink:

The Opaes actually like to nibble on the roots and leaves.
