Fish4All--I'm glad to hear your snails are eating!
I never remove the seed from zucchini or summer squash. My snails love everything but the rind. I do nuke them for a minute first and in the morning I remove the leftover rings. I'm pretty low maintenance that way! LOL
Susan--one other thought on the lovely mess in your driftwood tank. Are you feeding the snails enough vegetable matter? Perhaps they're just hungry and want more to eat. Mine seem to hoover up all the fishie leftovers first but then start in on the veges. By morning I usually have close to nothing left. See if more food doesn't solve your problem. Mine love zucchini, squash, kale, romaine, peas with the shells off, french cut green beans, apples, split grapes and tons more. Dandelion leaves are also a favorite, well-washed with no pesticides. I remove anything that's not eaten after 12 hours, and a few hours for the juicier things like grapes and those I don't give often.
