So today I got a few pond snails from my biology teacher, who was going to get some pond scum, but got a frog and 2 pond snails accedentally. Today, we came in and there was a plethora of snails. Baby snails. I asked if I could have 4, but I wound up with 10, give or take.
Currently, they are in a pint sized water bottle filled with dirty water and algae to about the first ring, and I need to know if I should add some tap water and water conditioner. I can't really take the snails out, plus I have no place to put them until Thursay evening. (I own a betta fish and I need to transport him to a little show thing.)
The snails are currently swimming happily across the side. I have named th runt of the litter, or whatever you call baby snails, Nemo. (Lol he just passed by. :P)
Can I feed them lettus and/or moss from outside?
Should I fill the bottle with more tap water and add conditioner?
How long until they are sexually mature? (I would like to start breeding these little guys and release/sell them. ;P)
How long does it take to hatch the eggs?
Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.
