In the past few weeks I have lost 5 mystery snails, I'm not sure why There was only one left alive today and seems to be doing well. I almost sure the loss was due to old age. They were very mature when I got them. And mystery snails are only to live one year. So Today I went up to Erie Pa. to Petsmart. I phoned them first to see if one they had them and two if they had a good selection. I came home with two blue mystery and six Nerite. There was one Black racer the largest of the bunch two spotted, and two striped. All but the Black racer were small juveniles about the size of a dime. I even picked one that had eggs all over the shell. Now being that they are from fresh water they may lay eggs but these eggs will never hatch.
Ben now has his herd back and loves swimming up to each one and giving them the eye and once over. I also picked up some cuttle bone and placed some chips all over the bottom of the tank. They don't give much mind to Ben and are busy finding their way around the tank.
So I am staying busy and getting some things ready to cycle a new tank.
