    The ramshorn snail is often viewed as an aquarium pest, but they are in fact a very beautiful and graceful creature. They only become a problem when too much food is added to the tank, resulting in a population explosion. This professionally done high definition video takes a close look at this...

    I'm worried that my assassin snails aren't getting enough to eat. Everyone says that you don't have to feed them and that they will just eat the leftover fish food. The problem is that every time I feed the fish, none of the food (bloodworms or flakes) gets to the bottom. I am worried that...

    :fish:I got a plant a few weeks ago snd now my tank is overrun with snails. I do not want to kill them, I would like to keep them as pets.

    I walked into my room the other night, glanced at my tank, and saw snails. Little tiny snails - everywhere. Granted, that's a bit of an exaggeration - there were only 5 or 6 - but still... I have no idea where they came from. I'm guessing they came from the live plants I put in earlier last...
  11. Want To Buy
    Hi, this is my first post here. I've been reading for a while but now have a problem I hope someone can help me out with. I bought a dwarf puffer a couple weeks ago, forgot to buy snails and then found out they didn't sell them. I bought some huge mystery snail and the guy threw in some 1-2mm...
  12. General Freshwater
    But is there such thing as too many snails? :?: Could they eventually poison the water? I have no live plants in my set up - am I dodging an over population bullet? and last but not least, if I did get an overpopulation problem, wouldn't most of the babies be eaten by larger creatures in the...

  16. Invertebrates
    So I have a couple of questions: Should you quarantine invertebrates (ex. apple snail) before putting them into your tanks? I'm just curious because I wanted to get a couple. Can they transfer diseases? EDIT: I have some more questions about snails. I thought I would add them here instead of...

    I had an outbreak of ich in my guppy tank, so I moved my snails into a 1 gallon tank with a new mother who had just given birth. She had been placed in the ich medicine for about two minutes by my little daughter, who threw the fizzy tablet in her bowl (where she had given birth) instead of the...
