Bioload on Mystery Snails? Tank gets dirty fast!
Hi, I'm starting up a 10gal planted tank, but until I plant the 10gal, I have all four of my mystery snails in a 2.5gal tank with some floating plants in it. I know its small but I only plan to keep em in there for less than a week.
Their tank gets messy so fast, I pretty much have to vac/do a 50% change everyday. I could get away with 2-3 days but it gets unsightly. I have no substrate, so you could really see how much waste they produce, and its ALOT for just snails. The ammonia really builds up after a day, and this just scare me b/c its not like a 10gal is THAT much bigger than the 2.5, especially since Ill have more bioload with fish in the 10gal.
Are they supposed to be this...dirty for just snails?
