    Peppermint eating acan?

    My acan is almost dead. It went from very happy and growing to skeleton showing. I thought it was the new salt I got but all my crabs and snails seem perfectly happy and healthy. I saw on a forum a little bit a go the peppermints can be horrible and eat anything and everything. Sooooooo, does anyone want my peppermint shrimp? He needs a new home ASAP or he is going to be meeting the porcelain god.

    You can have him. My acan is so gone another probably won't make a difference. I don't have a net or anything to catch him. I can take the rocks out though to make it easier for you though. I live in the southern part of fountain. My number is 915-490-3370

    Lol OK. In a way I hope it is just the shrimp because that's an easy fix but if it is the shrimp I'm super upset because my acan was doing so well and was pretty

    Do you want my larger astera snail too? Valley pets threw it in with some other shrimp but I really don't need two of those and its pooping too much for my tank.

    Goodness. Snails I got from Valley Pets, not shrimp.
