    Hello. I am a new fish keeper and have a 5 gal snail tank with 2 nerites, a mystery snail and a pond snail. I recently added a new “flourish plant supplement ” after noticing it has 0.0001% copper, which I know can be harmful to snails. The thing is, I eyed the use for my tank and am nervous my...

    Recently added a zebra nerite snail to my tank and he started working on cleaning my tank straight away and got lots of algae off my tank, his poo was green to start off with which is from the algae but today I saw some white coloured poop, is this normal? If so what is he eating that’s making...

    Hi there!! I have a 10 gallon, filtered, heated and soon to be planted with Anubias tank (They’re quarantining in a vase rn with dechlorinated water, got some Detritus worm hitchhikers). I have brown algae (diatoms I believe they are) and some green algae in my tank, for that I’d be interested...

    Hello, everyone. I haven't been on this site for a couple of months now, since I got Asteria, and I wanted to start a journal (even though it might be a bit boring, because I currently have only one fish). I guess I should start at the beginning. The Introduction At first I wanted a...

    So this morning I was messing with my 5g betta tank, of which he shares with two snails(it's by a window so they work together on the algae) well sometime while I was doing this, one of my snails must have crawled out (first time!) and I didn't find him until about 4 or so hours later. He was...

    Sorry for always posting when things go wrong. :oops: So, I bought 3 Nerite Snails about a month ago and stuck them in my cycled 5gal single male betta tank (I know that's tapping overstock almost, but I stay on top of the params really well/do spot cleanings of the snail waste! All safe!). A...

    I have two fish. The first one, the one I consider non-aggressive and "clean" Yukine, and the second, his polar opposite Niji. Back in December, I purchased two black mystery snails. One of them went into Yukine's tank the other went into Niji's. The main reason why I bought them was because...

    Today I went to the pet store in my local area ( a private reputable pet store not a national chain) and told them I have a male betta and that he is in a 2.5 gallon aquarium (not a bowl) and that I was wondering if there was anything that could live in this tank with him as a community. They...

    So the other day I made a post about algae and someone recommended that I go out and buy a nerite snail... I did such today, but on the drive home a question came to mind; can a snail live in an aquarium that has salt in it? I also read online that snails are able to climb out of tanks that...

    I'm looking to add to my tank. I have a male betta, and a nertile zebra snail. Tomorrow I plan to get one more zebra snail and possibly an additional tank mate! I have my betta in a tank at 80 degrees, a live plant, gravel and a hammock. He seems very happy but I want to add a little bit...

    I've used this forum forever finding advice for my betta. Now comes the time where I need advice and can't find it so I finally made an account. A year and a half ago I bought a bright red half moon betta the same time my friend did. We both listened to the petstore worker who said betta's...

    So I added a Nerite to my tank yesterday and gave him a blanched cucumber slice to munch on. When I woke up this morning the tank was cloudy and my fish was acting weird. He was only staying on the side away from the snail. A) Could the cloudiness be related to the cucumber/snail or could it...

    So I got a Nerite Snail as a tankmate to my Betta. But this nerite doesn't seem to want to move. He is just sitting where I left him without even attaching to the surface. But I did check that he's alive. He shut his trapdoor so fast and hard that my nail got stuck in it... Any suggestions...

    Hey I'm having a bit of an algae problem in one of my 2.5 gallon tanks. The tank is located right next to my "planted snail tank" which has a light on it. The light is causing a bunch of algae growth on one wall of the tank. As of right now, I've been wiping it down during water changes but it's...

    So I got my first nerite snail a few weeks ago but constantly found him upside down...he definitely could not flip himself right side up at all and was usually all pulled in his shell so I brought him back and exchanged him for another snail. I've had the new snail for over a week but I'm...

    What do you guys think??

    I read somewhere that burying a cuttlefish bone (the same as used for birds) under the aquarium gravel is good for snails because it gives off calcium to supplement their shell growth. I've got one Zebra Nerite in with my betta in a 2.5 gallon tank. Thoughts? It's not cycled, but I do have a...

    Hello! I have an extremely curious piebald blue/white DT named Sherlock. He's constantly watching me and checking out his environment, and I'd love to put a tankmate in with him to stimulate him further. I realize that my options are severely limited with my tank- it's only 2.5 gallons and I'd...

    I know. this is probably not the right section. I wasn't exactly sure where I post this. Anyway, on Sunday I came into possession of a nerite snail (i named him Cedric). Short version. A girl at my school did a photo shoot with one crawling on her model in a tub (from what i know the tub was...
