Stop the press…. Snails in the workplace!

Don’t panic, we have not been infested here in Stansted. In fact, the snails are here because they are our new pets! Not the most conventional of pets but they are now at home in our aquarium, helping to keep the glass clean and keeping our White Cloud Mountain Minnows company. We purchased two Horned Nerite Snails (Clithon corona) which are striking little things (for a snail). The snails are great for cleaning the glass (although we will give them additional food) and help to maintain the water chemistry in the tank. Namely keeping nitrate levels down, which is of benefit to the minnows too.

The snails have small horns that are a defence mechanism and can prick skin if handled incorrectly. I think that they look really good and they are a great addition to our temperate aquarium. If you are visiting us in Stansted, you will find them as you come through the door, so take a closer look and watch them graze on the algae.

We have only had them for a day so far and I look forward to seeing how they get on.

Felicity Moonwalking…

WE DID IT! Finishing at 4am we walked 15.1 miles in just under 5 hours, a very reasonable pace of just over 3 miles an hour! All in aid of the breast cancer charity walk.

It was a very humbling event to take part in – I’ll aim for the 26.2 miles in the next few years!

Thanks for all your support, if you’d like to donate then please go here

Well done Fliss!
