Headline News: A Zebra Netrite Snail That Went Missing This Morning.....

Suddenly Reappears Tonight!

After introducing Zena the Zebra Netrite and Tina the Tiger Netrite to my divided 10g tank yesterday(one on each side), they began their housekeeping duties at once. I saw Zena on the divider this morning and Tina was on her side munching away. Never saw Zena again. It is a heavily planted tank, so I thought she was hiding!

As the day went on I began to worry. I was seeing Tina frequently but no Zena. So then I thought "Oh my, she may have escaped" I looked everywhere outside the tank, several times throughout the day.

Then as I was walking by the tank tonight, I casually look in and there is Zena, happily clean a leaf on a silk plant. Geeze, really? I looked everywhere, in the divider, on the lid, in the filter. Where the heck was she?

Lol glad you found her! Maybe she was on the underneath part of a leaf?

Nerites will easily climb over dividers

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.
