    Woke up this morning to a almost white looking tank, thought I may of had a bacteria bloom or something, after cleaning out my filter sock which was over flowing/blocked up, I saw this and everything became clear to what was happening...

    I have 6 Astraea snails in the tank, and it seems they must of been going at it most of the night, judging by the colour of the white water, when I checked only 2 of them was finishing off the "orgy" lol. I had always presumed that the female would lay eggs on the rock work and the male wound fertilise them by going over them, didn`t realise they where water spawners, learn something new every day.
