Pond Snail Journals

So today I got a few pond snails from my biology teacher, who was going to get some pond scum, but got a frog and 2 pond snails accedentally. Today, we came in and there was a plethora of snails. Baby snails. I asked if I could have 4, but I wound up with 10, give or take. They hatchedover the weekend.

Currently, they are in a pint sized water bottle filled with dirty water and algae to about the first ring, and I need to know if I should add some tap water and water conditioner. I can't really take the snails out, plus I have no place to put them until Thursay evening. The snails are currently swimming happily across the side. I have named the runt of the litter, or whatever you call baby snails, Nemo. (Lol he just passed by. :P)

I'll be updating on whatever happens to my little snails as days go by, and I'll post pics of them whemn they get big enough. (Camera can't focus on them for they are too small.)

I just raised the water level, added some BettaSafe conditioner, and put in a little plant/lettus/esparagus thing I found in my fridge. I will try to have pics up soon! I just looked and It looks like Nemo is near the surface. :)
Some other snails are now mobile as well. :D

I will move them to a much prettier tank this weekend or anytime after Thursday.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

-Just Did a population count and got 4...I could've sworn there were more...?-

(Sorry for all of these double posts but I'm updating as I go.)

Now I just counted 5.

You'll be able to count them better as they get bigger.

Today I counted seven. ^_^

I also moved them into a much larger, .8 gallon jar- No lid. I should have pics up soon.

Unfortunatly, one died in the process. ):

I still have 7, and they are acting nicely. I have onion stalk & leaves, and lettus.

Peace! ^_^

Lol Lupin. :P

Not much to say now...

Aren't snails cold blooded, so they need sun and warmth to get going?

The ones you have will tolerate a wide range of temperature. They tend to be more active in increased temp condition though just like fish due to active metabolic rate.
