Okay, so I used to breed Briggs. Totally dug them, they were great, yada yada. This is the first time I have ever had Nerites. At first I was like, "Yay, so pretty, me want." And then I got them home and remembered why I hadn't bought them in the past. All the &*^&^%^% eggs!!! I'm to the point right now where I want to set up an aquarium JUST for Nerites. Totally blank tank. Feed the crap out of them. Then the happy ones that start laying eggs get given away to people who don't mind that ridiculousness, or tossed into fry growout tanks or something that I care more about the water quality than the aesthetics of. And ONLY move the males to my main tanks. Seriously, how does one deal with this ridiculous tank decorating of sesame seeds?! My jerkface Betta eats them. At least I assume he does, because she lays them, and then they slowly disappear. But he's not handling all of them, and I'm feeling frustrated with the eggs. Thinking I should have just gone with Briggs again! It's a shame that they're so pretty. Does anyone here have Nerites? How do you handle the egg issue?
