do your snails look sometimes as if their raining down when they get swept by the current from the little waterfall runing down from the filter? because mine are starting to do that but they dont look like rain yet..but you do see them floating down from the top from time to time..its kinda funny I bet they have alot of fun when they do that.
I'd have fun :)

Like byron said, they are constantly eating stuff, I have one that hitched a ride with my daphnia culture, and even though I never feed enough for anything bigger than daphnia to live on, my snail remains fat from whatever "stuff" is in the aqurium. acute bladder snails are pretty cool creatures too, they have adapted to breath air from the surface, so you commonly see them upside down on the waters surface. They can also walk upside down on water which is pretty neat. I can go on and on about the benefits of bladder snails when compared to some boring assasins
oh thats great thank youl! I love these little guys I dont think Im gonna get some mercenary snail to be rid of them. afterall they are one big happy family :)
