Need info on nerite zebra snails
Though I've been doing research I do have many questions about the Nerites that I cannot seem to find anyone to answer. Most of them are out of curiosity
1- Do they do well in unheated tanks? (been thinking more than 1) and put them in a seperate tank but getting yet another heater will take me a while >_< if they do well, Im not getting any more. Just 1 in a heated tank with my betta is fine.
2- Apart from algae eaters, are they in a way scavangers? do they eat flake veggie food for example D:
3- When getting them as a tank mate, how long does people quaritine them?
4- How can you tell if one is sick or unwell?
5- How can you tell a healthy snail from a sickly one when buying from a pet store
6- Shrimp or snails to clean your tank and why ?
7- How can you tell apart their sex? Or are they hermaphrodite like land snails
8- What do you do when they lay eggs? How to remove them?
9- Is it true that snails climb out of your tank if they are unhappy with their living conditions?
10- Do snails get stressed like betta's and how can you tell?
11- What is beneficial and what isn't for snails? (I know cuttlefish bone is good for them but some medications might not agree, what about epsom salt for example?)
12- How often are they fed algae wafers.
13- If fed in a different container, (because bettas nom on the wafer) how long would you leave them there with the food?
yeaaaah... lots of questions... thats about it for now though XD
Free cookies for those who answer them all lol
