They sound perfect. ^^

I'll wait to get them until after I move up to Washington. I would hate to move with a bunch of fry. To risky.

Might start getting shells though. Wonderful thing about Washington, all I need to do is go down to the beach. XD Would I need to do anything with the shells before introducing them into a tank? Cause I was thinking they'd be neat to put into my betta tanks too.

I would give them a boiling to kill any nasties living on then.

watch them in your betta tank as they will raise your Ph and harden the water.

Ah, probably not the best choice since I have troubles getting it to normal levels. I'd probably have to add more IAL.

Sounds good to me. ^^ I'm all excited to eventually get some shellies. XD Give me a year and I'll have them. >.>
