So there is yet another empty white spot shell- down to one adult and just two babies that i can see. yellows are all doing great. the mystery snails are all alive still, pest snails are still abundant but I'm seeing fewer new ramshorns and more pond snails.

My last white spot adult might be dead. I'm not sure. the shell moves a bit but that could be other critters knocking it around. i still am seeing white spot babies, and my yellows all still seem to be okay.

i don't think i will replace them until i can have a whole sulawesi biotope.

they eat whatever the other snails eat in the tank which is something. not really sure what exactly but i feed every night and other snails don't seem to be having problems. too scared to move the babies, other ones died!! i really wanted to sell some to my friends but :(

Have you tried adding any more crushed coral? I really think that might be part of the problem. Those snails really do seem to like higher pH water.
