Hey all! Well I was curious because someone told me that certain kinds of snails keep sand substrate upturned. I was wondering if there is a certain kind of snail that does this? I also know there are certain kinda snails that can breed upon themselves,and i dont want a snail invasion lol. Help?!
Be sure not to put them in water with the tinest bit of copper.... (live and learn..... poor squirmy! lol)
They spend most of their time in the sand, for the most part, only come out at night. From what I understand, as long as they dont get a lot to eat, they will not overpopulate.
I just read a very interesting article on snails,debunking most of the myths about them. Now from what i understand (and you guys said lol) they are controlled by how much your tank is fed. So with my Pandas,they eat everything i give them pretty much. And they are definetly not overfed. So should this MTS be safe in my tank then? How many should I get? I know they are pretty darn small. I have a 9.25 gallon tank. Thanks again!!
Okay another thought lol! Do they have any problems living with Bettas? I know under Fishys gravel is all kinds of nasty stuff. Ya know stuff always drifts through it. I can never get all of it out,but i try!! Would they be good for that too. He is not overfed either,so hopefully itll be fine?
I have had trumpets in my golfish tank and DP tank for over a year now with no problems. I have done nothing to contol their population and really dont even see them that often.
I think they would be fine in both taks.
Maybe somewhere between 5-10 for the 9gal. Most fish stores will give you these snails for free.
Oh cool. Really? Free lol. Hmmm...I l like free...thanks again!!
