What an awful experience.

I was again re-decorating my sorority tank and noticed that my mystery snail Heidi was still in the same place as she was last week, so I picked her up to see if she recoiled and to my utter shock she slipped out and in to the tank along with one heck of a smell, not in all my life have taken a whiff of anything so HORRIFIC in all my life so I swiftly opened my windows and vacated the room only to return to a much milder smell, which as we speak is still haunting me. All I can say is thankfully I wasn't brave enough to stick my nose next to her because I don't think I would be writing this right now lol.

Same thing happened to me with one of my snails. The smell is absolutely dreadful! O.o

I'm sorry about Heidi though.


In the hobby for 9 years.
