Finally got back on here... lots to update. Any word yet as to when or if an app will be made for this rather than using Web browser on my phone?

Lee Shipley updated tiger nerite
2015-02-20 10:14:14 -0800
This species is a common choice of algae-eating snail among freshwater aquarists. In the aquarium trade, the striped shell of this species has caused it to be known as the tiger snail, zebra snail, or zebra nerite. (The name zebra nerite is however misleading, because there are several species of nerite that have that common name, including Puperita pupa, a small marine nerite from the tropical western Atlantic.) In an aquarium, the shell of this species grows to about 2.5 cm (one inch) in diameter. This snail prefers an aquarium temperature of 22 to 26 °C. The snail will venture to the top of the aquarium, and come out of the water from time to time.

Lee Shipley updated Limpet
2015-02-18 16:43:23 -0800
Limpet is a common name applied to aquatic snails with shells broadly conical in shape, rather like the conical Asian hat. The term "limpet" is purely informal, a term of convenience; it refers to any gastropod whose shell has no obvious coiling such as one sees in familiar garden snails or in winkles. Although all limpets are Gastropoda, the group is highly polyphyletic, meaning that the various lines that we call limpets have descended independently from different ancestral Gastropoda. This general category of conical shell is technically known as "patelliform", meaning dish-shaped.[1] Some species of limpet live in fresh water, but by far the majority are marine. All members of the large and ancient marine clade Patellogastropoda are limpets, and within that clade the family Patellidae in particular often are called the "true limpets". However, other groups, not in the same family, also are called limpets of one type or another because of the general shapes of their shells. Examples include the Fissurellidae; they are the keyhole limpet family, contained in the clade Vetigastropoda, though many of the members of the Vetigastropoda do not have the morphology of limpets at all.

Lee Shipley updated Red Mangrove
2015-02-18 16:35:55 -0800
Rhizophora mangle, known as the red mangrove, is distributed in estuarine ecosystems throughout the tropics. Its viviparous "seeds," in actuality called propagules, become fully mature plants before dropping off the parent tree. These are dispersed by water until eventually embedding in the shallows. Rhizophora mangle grows on aerial prop roots, which arch above the water level, giving stands of this tree the characteristic "mangrove" appearance. It is a valuable plant in Florida, Louisiana, and Texas coastal ecosystems. In its native habitat it is threatened by invasive species such as the Brazilian pepper tree, (Schinus terebinthifolius). The red mangrove itself is considered an invasive species in some locations, such as Hawaii, where it forms dense, monospecific thickets.[1] R. mangle thickets, however, provide nesting and hunting habitat for a diverse array of organisms, including fish, birds, and crocodiles. Roots can damage aquariums as they grow. Plant is sensitive to salinity changes. Can grow 3+ times faster in freshwater as saltwater...
