    I have 6 assassin snails in my 10gal, they’ve been there for a week now and I feel like I see no difference in the invasive snail numbers. In fact, it feels like the invasive snail population is growing lol. They’re like fleas, I see so many of them all over the bottom of the aquarium and on the...

    What stores have Malaysian trumpet snails (Melanoides tuberculata) and Bamboo shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis)? I have a planted aquarium I am setting up for Betta and was told those snails and shrimp are compatible with Bettas. Also, is there a local source for Blackworms (Lumbriculus variegatus)?

    Hello all, I am 21 days into a new planted tank intended for cherry shrimps in the future. So far, everything seems fine, some of the plants are growing new leaves. However, as of the past few days, I am starting to see green algae growing on rocks and the surface of the glass, they aren't...

    Hello snail experts. I saw a couple of these today. This was photographed with a magnifying glass and is currently smaller than a sesame seed. Is it possible ID it at this size? The spiral seems to be going clockwise leading up the the shell opening.

    Can anyone tell me what type of snails these are? They were discovered living in my tank and we don't own any snails. I expect they came in on a plant that I added about a month ago. Thanks in advance!

    Hi! I have a land snail that I found in the field with a broken shell, and it is healing very well but the problem is that it has parasites! Are those white mites (riccardoella limacum) They are breeding a lot now and they are weakening the snail. Anyone know how I can remove them without...

    I have a 25ltr tank (5.5gal) that will house a betta. I let the tank cycle for 1 month and after everything was set, I got 3 Black choco Shrimp & 4 Red Cherry Shrimp. They've been in the tank for exactly one week and are doing great (cleaning my plants from algae, swimming around, molting...

    Hi folks, I inherited a Nerite snail from a family member about 6 months ago, so set up my quarantine 10 gallon for him using substrate from my 55 gallon and some leftover rocks. It's looked like [email protected]#$ since then (see below), but the parameters are stable, nerite snail happy, and ramshorn also...

    Wondering if anyone has any experience keeping snails in a tank using Fluval Stratum Shrimp substrate? The snails shells weren't exactly perfect when they arrived but several of them have clearly gotten worse since entering the tank. This is my first time purposely keeping snails and even...

    I am new to this forum, hello... have done much lurking, reading many informative posts, but this is first time I've needed to ask a question. I just received some snails for my freshwater tank, I had ordered two chopstick snails, but what I received doesn't look like any pictures I've seen of...

    Hey guys! I've had blue leopard ramshorns in my 3 gal. betta tank for about half a year now, love the little dudes, but I recently changed the substrate from dirted Seachem-brand onyx sand to Fluval Stratum (mostly for the color and ease of planting) and their pretty shells have turned a chalky...

    I was about to clean my 15 gallon tank and do a water change when I noticed these little guys crawling on the glass. It was good timing as I was debating putting some snails in anyway to help with the cleanup crew. Any ideas what these little guys are? Thanks!

    QUESTION: After putting Fenbendazole in my tank, how long till I can put back my 2 Nerite Snails? Is there a required number of water changes? BACKSTORY: I have green Hydra so I'm using Fenbendazole. I plan on transferring my Nerite Snails before dosing Fenbendazole. I have read that...
  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Got my hands on a new snail species. I have no name at all for them. I don't know there country of origin, but I can say they were found Wild in Central Texas (doesn't mean they are native to there) They look sort of like apple snails but the shell is not right for them, and they definitely are...

    I bought 2 Lava Snails for my tank recently and I love them! They seem perfectly healthy: Moving around, licking the glass, eating algae and leftovers. But even in the store all the snails had this white discoloration on the tip of their shells. Is this something dangerous? Is there something...
