Good job so far
Nice one dude I appreciate the advice. Only problem with the elodea is I never have any success on keeping the plants alive even with the correct lighting I just don't know what I'm doing wrong with them. I've added a filter now that they're bigger and stronger swimmers. And back in June I purchased ALOT of elodea and they had small worms might of been leaches and bugs in them even after I cleaned them all day so don't know what to do. I've also had no luck finding any snails in my local pet stores either and I'm from Manchester and even the big stores haven't had any in which is very strange.. one question though:

Do I need to let my cresties hibernate or am i fine keeping them how they are?
