Dead Nerite Snail?

380 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  sweetsoda
I've had nerite snails for a few weeks now. I had four in my tank. A couple days ago, one died. The ammonia and nitrites were at 0, nitrates at 5. My other snails and my betta are all fine. I think it might have been old age, since he was always the biggest and slowest, but I'm not sure. Any other possibilities?

pH is 8.0, I'm not sure about gH and kH but my water is akaline and hard, temperature is 79f. The tank has been cycled for a few months. I've used food to add ammonia and bottled bacteria for two weeks to cycle. Fish out of cycle. I added ammonia after tank cycled before getting fish, and within 24 hours it was gone. I don't have assassins in this tank. I haven't used medications in this tank, as everyone seemed healthy.
