I usually only give them blood worms the day before I do a water change so they don't make to big of a mess in the tank.

Also any ideas on getting rid of the constant algae that seems to be coming along with the trumpet snails, Im still waiting on fish 4 u to get an assasin snail?

Algae is usually caused by the amount of light and the amount of nutrients the algae is receiving, i.e. nitrates and phosphates. I doubt the snails are causing the algae, try reducing the amount of light the tank is getting.

How many hours should I cut down on? I usually have my light on from 900 am to 9 pm.

You can put the blood worms on a floating cup. It is amazing to see when all the fish will dart around it.:)
Thanks, I will try that next week, my honey gouramis might like that too, might give them more of a chance to get some before the rasboras go nuts.

Cutting down to 8-10 hours per day might help, that's 2-4 hours less. You could also just turn off the light for about 3 days, that should get rid of the algae.
That's a good idea I was also thinking of getting a few more otos, since I only have 2 or a few more amanos, or some nerites, but don't know about nerites since Im going to be getting an assasin to keep the trumpet snails in check.
