    I got a new snail for my aquarium and today he looks like this, but he moves when I touch him. Whats wrong with him? Is he gonna die?
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi guys! I'm having a huge amount of trouble keeping snails and after searching and searching this and other forums, I'm still really stumped as to what's going wrong! :confused: I've tried multiple nerite snails (one by one) and now also an apple snail, and even though they're lively in the...

    I intend to get a Nerite snail for my 5 gallon nano planted aquarium. Should the tank have Seachem Prime added like you would when adding a fish? Or is it dangerous to snails?
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Alright, guys. I'm pretty sure what's going on here and I'm looking for answers/solutions. About 4 months ago I got a 3.7 gal nano aquarium. I love it and it's been doing great. It cycled halfway through March and I just put in 3 guppies. Water levels are beautiful and I maintain weekly water...

    I've been entertaining the idea of breeding Indian Whisker shrimp, Amano shrimp and Nerite snails. These all have larval stages in common. I was wondering about keeping a brackish and freshwater quarantine tank always on each about 3 gallons so they are conditioned and covered in algae/diatoms...

    Hi everyone! I want to share some successful results of an experiment I've done with Biter, my pea puffer. She is a super aggressive little tyke, and she will eat anything that moves in her tank. Annoyingly, if there's any algae in her tank, there isn't anything that can eat it and escape her...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello everyone after reading all of the great posts and experiments people have been doing on the forums I've decided to try my own. It all started when I got 2 nerites for my tank about a month ago, unfortunately they were both females and quickly started laying eggs all over my DW. So I...

    So I finally gave in and bought a few horned nerites. I do weekly 5% water changes. Water is now 0 Ammonia ~0 Nitrate pH of ~7.2-7.4 gH of 9 My nerites are curled up inside their shells and won't move. Is my gH too low or something? They're in with neocaridina and I was hoping to add some...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have s 2.5g, probably only around 2g with with filter and heater. I was wondering what I could stock in this, I can't work out why, but cherry shrimps were a no go, they would last a few months and then die. I currently have a zebra nerite snail (Errol) who is living happily. I wondered...

    Will nerites eat clado and/or spirogyra? I suspect that I got some clado in a plant shipment and am considering them along with more amanos.

    I picked up a Nerite snail last week. From what I can tell he is nocturnal. He doesn't move an inch during the day but every morning when I come into work he's moved. The weird part is that during the day he is sleeping on the ceiling of my Spec 3 thank. Perhaps I need to call him Batsnail...
  12. For Sale/Trade
    I have about 5 or so spare assassin snails. I am always in the market for nerites and shrimp. If you are interested in setting up a trade, I would be more than happy to make it happen. Located in the Chicagoland area. Very cold here and would prefer not shipping it anywhere. Thanks for your...

    Hi all, two months ago I treated my 5 gallon shrimp tank with fenbendazole to overcome a planaria bloom. I knew from reading up other forum posts on this site that fenbendazole is toxic to nerite snails, so I removed them into a separate holding bowl for them to wait in until it was safe for...

    Nerite Snails are one of the best algae eaters for me. I have 8 of them in my 20 gallon planted tank. My Aunty caught them from their province and gave some to me as she sell them online. I see them crawl all over my tank eating green and brown algae, leftover fishfoods like sinking pellets and...
  15. The Lounge & Introductions
    I am currently cycling a 5 gallon Marineland Hex 5 for crystal red shrimp. I have purchased Fluval Stratum for the substrate and have added a couple of nerite snails to get things going. I am using RO water and will add GH+ before adding shrimp. Now I am finally getting ammonia readings to show...
  16. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Lfs said it is a mystery snail but it looks like a nerite more to me. Could someone help me ID it? I'm new to the forum and hope the picture attachments show up correctly. Thank you in advance!
  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Recently, my wild-caught Olive Nerites have been laying eggs like crazy. I know my tank is freshwater, so how could this be happening? I heard they only reperduce in brackish or salty water. They were acclimated from a brackish marina near where I live, where they have a steady population about...
  18. Planted Nano Tanks
    Outside of an Amazon sword I have in my 29 gallon at home this is my first planted tank. It's now been set up on my desk at work for two weeks and I'm really enjoying having some fauna in the office. I started the setup about two months ago and had kept it at my house for setup and cycling...
  19. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Would it be safe to house 6 horned nerites in a Tupperware container for say a period of 1-2 months temporarily? I could leave it near the window for natural algae... I rather not have to do this, but its an emergency and can't have 8 horned nerites at once in a 17 gallon eating up all the...
  20. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I currently have a 25 gallon tall tank with a clean up crew consisting of 3 amanos, 2 otos, and a large ivory mystory snail (doesnt eat much of the algae but is AWESOME at eating any and all leftover food... Hes a pig and I love him!)... but I still seem to have some issues with algae... mostly...
