@Tikibirds (or anyone else) I adore those fuzzies! How does the moss latch onto their shells and stay? That looks so totally awesome!

Snails shells are hard enough. A solid surface can grow Algae. If the stay near enough light.

Choc, I am curious about your assassin snails. I am so hooked on the idea of getting them, might have an assassin snail only tank. Do they only eat other snails or can they eat alge wafers and plants like other snails as well? I'm thinking if I had a tank for the assassins i might get common pound snails to breed and be food for them if they need snails.

Assassins eat Flakes and snails. A few Babies can take down an adult Apple snails. They will also eat Shrimp. They dont eat plants. Mine get the Occosional Pond snail. I am trying to breed more Pond Snails. In Refuigums.

Ahh, okay. I knew that it can grow on turtle shells and snails' shells but captive-wise I didn't know it could happen :o


Also, those images aren't loading... Could just me by system being odd.

That is a blue apple. I love them.

As for the pictures. The nerite in the second one is likely after noms. I saw algae on the shell of the apple. They will rasp food anywhere. I keep finding mine trying to crawl into my filter.

Thank you! I have been trying to get someone to tell me for a month!

She is a funny girl with a lot of personality. Wanna know how she got her name? Because she has this uncanny ability to disapear! When she was little, she could hid in the most elaborate ways and I would think she had gotten out of the tank! You see that little castle over to the left? One day, I couldn't find her anywhere. When I gave up and went to cleaning the substrate PLOP! she fell out of the castle! I couldn't figure out how she got in there until later when I watched her pick it up with her foot and crawl underneath

I am an addict.

I have a black mystery snail in my 10 gallon community. He always climbs to the top of the wisteria at the top of the tank and then lets go. Para-snailing! haha (kudos to whoever came up with that term, i forget who) She is named Shelly-Anne Frasier Pryce (sprinter) even though I don't know her gender. haha I bought her from Petsmart in October 2012.

Next, I have my beloved nerite. He is a tracked nerite. Named Usain Bolt (sprinter). This snail is my pride and joy. haha He lives alone with my male VT in a 10 gallon mini bow. I have had him since February of 2012. He is from my LFS.

I also have 10 million pond snails in the 10 gallon community that are all named Steve. haha They lurv the wisteria. (:

I like snails.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
