Ah, I would not know.
When I bleach dip a new plant I do a 20:1 ratio of water to bleach. I always research the plant before I dip it, some plants are more tolerate than others. As far as keeping the snails in check, if you start seeing them all over (basically more than you'd like to see) start smashing them. Haha There are several fish that eat them as well, like puffers and loaches. But they are harmless either way. I don't like them when I see them they die.Awesome thanks for the advice guys. No not going for a grand piece. My honest first reaction was cool. But like I said about invasive.. so in doing a little research and as you guys said if left unchecked.. how to check them when they start getting out of hand. Assassin snails? Maybe just a couple so everyone can stay happy? And the mild bleach dip. I'm sure I can find a thread on the how to? Thanks again you guys rawk
I'm pretty sure those are Malaysian Trumpet Snails. At least the first one. They dig in the substrate and keep it aerated. They shouldn't get out of hand unless you overfeed.If they are pond snails I'm going hunting lol
LMFAO! I'm calling the police.... right after I wash the snail guts off my hands.I have 5 Nerites, 1 Apple, and 1 Ramshorn snails. That's it! All others (typically pond snails) get squished. I am a confessed serial snail killer. I'm going to start putting hash marks on the tank for each that I kill
bottom line is, if you don't squish them now, you will have scores of them very soon!
