Injured snail. Wow. I don't stop to think about injured snails. My nerite has a chipped shell where part of the tiger pattern came off.

yea he got... "dropped" I let him have some cleaned eggshell and algae wafers for a bit before I put him in the big tank. Then he discovered live plants and veggies. why he would be sick is beyond me. These boys can MOVE slow as a snail... whoever said that never watched one of these guys in a tank

They're harder to see if you have a lighter colored substrate. My MTS are golden, so they show up really well against my dark substrate.

I agree. I saw my nerite snail at one end of the tank. I went to fill the bucket of water for the water change, came back five minutes later, and he was crawling up the glass on the opposite side. That's why I named mine Hayate, "run like the wind." XD

Malaysian Trumpet snails supposedly never climb the walls. I've never seen mine climb out. But they multiply just as fast as pond snails. I don't think assassin snails climb out either. As for bioload, I think it's on the same level as a single neon tetra maybe?

I read on a website that with Malaysian Trumpet Snails, the population increases in proportion to their food. So if you're overfeeding your fish and there's a lot of excess food for the snails, they breed really fast. I wonder if that's true for other snails.
