ok well i took some water to get tested to the pet store, the ph in good the ammonia an nitrite level are 0 the nitrate is at 5
how ever my hardness is really low they said it was 25ppm, and they said they keep theirs at 300ppm, well i had forgotten ther is a water softener at the house, so thats why my hardness is so low, they recomended i start doing water changes with the unsoftened water from my outside faucets, im takinig a sample to them later today to make sure it would be good for the fish and the snail.
i separated the snail into a fish bowl, i put him in the unsoftened water from the faucet treated with some tap water conditiner, he has been moving a bit more but still mostly laying on his side, im tempted to return him to the pet store so he can recuperate and live instead of making him suffer while i try to get the water right for him.
