My Silly Blue Mystery Snail
 
In less than 24 hours I have found my blue mystery snail hanging out in the breeders net that I have hanging on the inside of my main tank twice now. Out of the 4 snails that I have in the tank he is the only one to do this. He has done this a few times in the last couple of weeks. I am thinking about removing the net for now since it is not being used. Although I figure since the snail got itself into the net, it would be able to get itself back out again. I do remove him from the net and return him to the tank every time that I find him in the net. It is amazing some of the things that the inhabitants in our tanks insist on doing.

May be a fish chased it and while moving fast, it went in there? Just a thought.

It is what I figured, my adf is now hanging out in there. It seems like everything except for fry have found their way into it. For awhile one of my rubberlipped plecos was hanging out in between the glass and the net :-)
