So i put a new snail in there today, tomorrow im gonna check to see if its still there. And also, recently all my snails have been disappearing from their shells. Today i ended up sucking four small shells from the gravel, no snails in sight.

I often smash and remove the meat from my over populated common snails and feed it to my fish and other snails, shrimp, crayfish...I have made paste from it and fed to my older fry as well and they seem to love it too........a good food source right in your tank and a good use of over populated snails that need to be destroyed anyway and not released into the wild to destroy the ecosystem.......

hmm maybe I will have to throw a couple snails into my guys tank and see if he'll bite the bait. I like the idea of having him work a bit for his food ;)
