I have one apple snail and I might get one or two more. It would be interesting to try to breed them. :D
Anyways I have a few questions and I'm hoping maybe someone knows;
What EXACTLY do apple snails eat? I see mine munching on the walls of the tank (algae?), and I see him munching on my plants... but ONLY the dead or dying leafs, which makes him a good clean-up for the dead leafs of my plants...
but I am wondering do they actually eat dying plant leafs?
I've never seen him eat fish food.
What kind of food should I buy him (if you think I should?)
Can a yellow and lets say a brown apple snail breed?
Will pet stores take in apple snails normally? (like mom and pop pet stores that take fish in)
They won't ravage my plants, right? Is it just a fluke that my current apple snail only eats dead parts of my plants?
I'm going to research breeding and maybe buy 1 or 2 more apple snails, and hope I get lucky with the genders. :p Then let nature take course... I'm not going to lower the water level just gonna hope I can get eggs with my current water level =x
