Mystery snails love fresh blanched vegetables. They need calcium for nice thick shell growth.I feed mine spinach,collard greens,kale,carrots,romaine lettuce,cucumber,zucchini.Just about any vegetable/green blanched. Mine didn't care to much for algae wafers...and they're much more active when fed veggies I think.

Update on Black Snail

I checked on the tank about an hour or so ago and saw that my black snail is out and about.
He or she looks pretty happy in there. And I am happy that he/or she is FINALLY settling it.
Here are photos, BTW, he/or she will be needing a name as well

blanched?

Animals are not ours to exploit for money or pleasure.


Those who would abuse animals would do so to a human without second thought.

Without the salt.
You really just want to soften the greens/vegetables a littlebit..you don't want them mush though.You could probably use some other method..as long as the veggies are cooled off before you stick them in the tank.

I have an Apple snail in my 10gal, I've had his for about 2-3months and he's not big at all! He;s normal sized. XP
