I should say, they are quite small still - smaller than the tip of your pinkie finger.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!
Thanks!They breed readily. In my experience they aren't quite a bad as pond snails but I'm sure others have had the opposite experience. They're very common. The larger more colorful varieties are highly prized among snail lovers. The smallest ones are pest snails that clog filters and annoy people. Those ones look like normal ramshorns, not the pest ones.
Do you know if they eat shrimp? Suddenly, I'm missing a bunch of baby shrimp. Of course, it could be my Corey's. Every now and then they feast on my little red shrimp and lay eggs a week or so later. They also eat their own babies when they hatch out unless I separate them so I'm not sure if they are lacking in something in their diet. I'm more likely to overfeed than under.Yep, ramshorn snails! They are the larger type and the one on the left is a leopard ramshorn snail! (just a color difference)
