Talking Mystery Snails, Rare Trumpet Snail and Breeding of Assassin Snails

Please excuse my water marks since I can't remove them. Here are some new pics of them eating a rather large pellet.






Melanoides loebbeckei


Assassin depositing an egg in an empty MTS shell. I've informed Sounguru, a friend of mine from other forums about this development as he records everything for the assassin snails. See magenta circle at the bottom for an egg laid on the glass near the sand.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I was just wondering how long your mystery snails last in your tank. I like to get some to help with algae, but they never seem to last longer than a month. :(
Everything else in my tank is fine, but the snails never last

Mine have been with me for 6-7 months already. I lost my second mystery snail in 6 months after a juvenile Pomacea canaliculata managed to bore a hole on its operculum (trapdoor) thus allowing one of the other brigs (after I subsequently removed the cana) to pull the foot from the shell and eat it to my horror. I still have about 80 brigs left but still.

If you want something that eats algae, stick with nerite snails.
