Mystery Snails, Rare Trumpet Snail and Breeding of Assassin Snails
Please excuse my water marks since I can't remove them.:roll: Here are some new pics of them eating a rather large pellet.:smile:
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.:smile: See magenta circle at the bottom for an egg laid on the glass near the sand.
Nice pics Lupin!..............I'm really starting to become fond of snails
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. :sad:
If you want something that eats algae, stick with nerite snails.
