Im not sure if Im posting this in the right spot or not, but do new snails need to be quarantined? If so, what would they need for food as I dont there there is any/much algae or anything else to be eaten in my QT tank. Thanks
i do %80 of the time quarantine my snails, fish and plants
as for Saltwater snails I'd so the same (i don't have a Saltwater tank)
Thanks. According to one large supplier of snails, www.reefcleaners.org, there are only a few species that are known carriers of parasites that affect fish. There may be more than a few, but for the species normally used in our marine tanks apparently its not an issue (Astrea, Nassarius, Cerith, etc.). While I also believe quarantine is necessary I just thought I would share the information I have learned. Cheers
