im taking a clutch and 5baby snails, and i was planning on setting up a snail tank with the ones that wont go in my other tanks...so i was wondering how you do that? how often you change the water, and what you put in there?
It all depends on the tank (and how many you have in there) as to how often it needs changed. What size will your tank be? If you can, I would get a 10 g.
You don't need a heater, unless you are wanting them to breed. My snails did not start breeding until I put a heater into the tank, and I've been told by friends with snails if their tank stays in the mid-low 70's they don't have matings. I have an ADF in there with them, that's why they got the heater.
You do need to make sure you have a good solid top. They do come out of the water sometimes, and you don't want them crawling out of the tank.
Mystery snails do get fairly large. My largest is about golfball sized. So keep that in mind.
As for decorations, I do recommend having a couple caves or something they can go under or into. Mine really seem to like the fake anacharis plant I have in my tank. That's actually where all the babies are chilling. They all are living in the fake anacharis plant.
