betta box snail farm!


starting my hopefully wildly successful snail farm in a .5 gallon beta box today. i've got a handful (12?) rams-horn. I've read that a few blanched veggies will get things going and then i just need to make sure that there is algae for them and away we go!

I have ramshorn and MTS farm going in my 55 and 110 without trying. They breed like crazy!

Lol, same here. My fahaka puffer will all my snails if i left them in his tank. I have to house them in a seperate tank and feed them to him.
