Snails Annonymus

A thread for all the major snail lovers on this forum who not only enjoy their snails but are crazy about their snails and think they make great pets.

Now I'll admit I wasn't a snail fan until recently when I got 2 ghost shrimp and 1 snail. I learned quickly the snail picked up more food on the ground than the shrimp and also the shrimp (despite perfect water conditions, a bubbler, and the right temp) died in only one day. The snail on the other hand has been nothing but entertainment since I got him, a beautiful Golden Mystery Snail named TESLA!!!!!!!

Tesla I feel has quite the character for a snail, he goes at high speed (for a snail) around the tank sucking up dropped food and his spinach. He will climb to the top of the tank and let his whiskers out of the water like a daredevil then rather than climb back down he lets go of the glass and falls back to the ground. HOW SMART IS THAT??? He's a fantastic little guy and I think my dislike for snails is completely gone. I'm now nuts for them, they are so cute and so fun to watch. I want one for every tank, another mystery for my 2nd 10 gallon I am setting up (black), a blue for my 20 gallon, and a ramshorn for my 5 ans 2.5 gallon tanks.

Pictures of Tesla coming soon.

Nope, they breed in fresh then move the eggs to brackish.

Pondsnails are tasty Assassin snacks.

I sadly dont have good luck with mystery snails (they die on me in like a couple weeks). I do think it would be cool to have ramshorns again, as I was good with taking care of them and they were kinda cool pets.

You know what I noticed with them? They would "die" on me, and then suddenly they'd suddenly start swimming again, and the only way to know if the snails are actually dead is if the tank smells HORRIBLE...

But anyway, this is for people who like snails. I'm sorry.

I actually liked my pond snails that I'd get in my tanks. They helped eat some of the algae and they were surprisingly cute.
