he's probably tail biting, in which case you would treat it like you would finrot, just with clean warm water and a good diet. If you think something is triggering it, here are some possiblilites: stress, poor water quality, too much of a filter flow, too much light, too little light, or boredom.... Of course, there are other factors, and the possiblility he just might have a ocd sort of problem but chances are it might just be a one time thing. Hmm, I don't know about the albino snail thing, but it's probably possible...
Okay, clean water I can cope with. It could be because the last few nights the lights have been left on longer than they should have been. I'll get a timer for my lights and hope that's what the issue is.
If it is boredom what can I do to entertain him more?
Someimtes they go after it, because they cant tell its an object/something they cant go through. Its silly. Sometimes, when I QT or acclimate my snail in a shot glass, Alle looks at it like "OMG. The world doesnt make sense anymore D:"
Its pretty cute. If you leave it so he can go into it, he'll flail around a bit confused XD Bigger ones are best, like a brandy/burboun glass or something.
PewPewPew, hi, in our tank we have a helmet and didn't realise but simon love's it and he swims all over it.He adores it, maybe something like that would be good for your fish?they seem to prefer something a little bigger so they can explore and my LFS even suggested putting a 3rd hiding place for him!!!I hope this helped, it seems like they are little explorers so it might occupy him for a little while, and moving them around frequently will help a lot!!!
