yeah i try to put my snails on top of the food too. Well, Darroh definitely. But the baby seems to find other sources. probably tiny bits of algae growing on the walls or the caves, or in the rocks. i dont like to pick up baby that much because i'm paranoid i'll hurt him. but he moves all over anyways. they are not nerites though so.
They really are super cute little snails. I thought about getting some myself but have held off this far. I am paranoid about my plants and snails being together. I don't want the plants getting eaten.
My "voracious plant eating species" the rabbit snail hasn't done any damage with every other day feedings. They are much lazier though, regular snails chomp away constantly, rabbit snail eats and goes to sleep. Nerites are the ones that prefer algae the most. :D Posted via Mobile Device
i haven't got any plants in with my rabbit snails, but they dont really burrow either. They definitely do eat and sleep though. Well baby climbs around, and has a lot of energy. but he's like like less than a centimeter long still. no giant shell to haul around.
The nerites are pretty lazy they barely move they have just been chillin in the tank and occasionaly wonder to find food. So every other day is good to feed them? I had some guppy grass growing but it died unfortunately :( maybe I will find something for them to hide. I have hornwort in there but most of the leaves fell off
