@Old Dog 59 I think I actually understand that! I will definitely invest in a testing kit.

Unfortunately my brand new filter just broke and I have to replace it tomorrow. So all the beneficial bacteria from the filter will be lost. Any tips there?
Thanks again

@RussellTheShihTzu there is so much mixed information out there about everything.

Rupert seems to not like Samuel (my Apple snail) Rupert is constantly flaring at him but doesn't seemed bothered by the other 2.

Today I was just watching the snails moving about and Samuel mounted Susan (my trapdoor snail) and looked like he was trying to eat her. (I don't actually know if she's a she) She started wigging out and he just seemed to keep latching on.

I could be wrong. I got a picture before they started wresting around but it freaked me out! I stuck my hand in the tank and got them apart. (They are both fine. I was very gentle) My boyfriend is going to take my Apple snail and get a tank for him at his house.

And yesterday when I got them home, he did the same thing to my zebra stripped snail and he also started wigging out and today he hasn't come out of his hiding place. He hasn't moved. I poked him gently and his little annenaes (spelling ??) came out.. so I don't know!

I really don't want to leave him in my tank anymore though. After he did that to my zebra nitrite (Simon) I started reading up on them and that's when I read they basically will eat anything, even fish and other snails. But I honestly know nothing.

And snails poop SO MUCH!!! It's insane! I have a wide mouthed suction vacuum. I'm going to look into a battery powered one maybe with a smaller nozzle for the hard to reach places in my tank. Any suggestions?

Thanks again! ☺️
