I just started searching pet leaches as soon as i saw this... I love the idea! I read that once a month you should get a fresh liver snd leave it in a leech tank for 1 day then remove

Hmm ok Raw meat, snails, etc apparently they'll eat. And apparently minnows would be good too >< blech

So far, they're all doing fine. The shrimp are hiding, I've misplaced the leach in there somewhere

And heyyyy thanks for the link! That's them alright!! Lymnaea stagnalis... Also known as the great pond snail, which is a large air breathing snail =D and yes is found in Alberta Prefers low flow or stagnant water... And they carry lots of parasites apparently or can.
Your welcome That was alot easier then when I tried finding out what my freshwater snails were. Typing NY snails resulted in everything but snails of NY. LOL

I put mine into my soriety but I don't think they had parasites - the fish seem fine so far. well one had a slight ick attack but I think that was unrelated.

Awesome :p I intend to be adding aged and dechlorinated water a little at a time, then introducing new foods a little at a time, see if we can't get them "converted" Lol I love the fact they're the "great pond snails", making them sound awesome.'

And to think this came from wanting to start an infusoria culture.

I probably should of acclimated them to tap water and QT them a lot longer then I did, but since they have been popping out a new snail almost every day- I think they are doing just fine

ohhh yeah. I did half and half. Half pond, half tap (with conditiiner) and even the shrimp, which I remember being more fragile, are doing just fine, zooming around.
