These snails are my latest addition.
Very cool! Where did you manage to get those from?
I got them on the 'Bay.
Just a heads up. These snails need a lot of calcium in the water in order to retain theirs shells. Lack of calcium in water will cause their shells to wear away.
Thanks! Tank is well loaded with shells and other forms of calcium. I keep it that way because the shrimp need calcium for their exoskeletons. Thanks again.
Shells won't help. Maybe keep your ph up. What other forms of calcium do you have?
I periodically place chips of "wonder Shell" in my 2 gallon "eco-jar". This adds calcium carbonate and other needed minerals. I know it works because I have zebra and tiger nerite snails in the jar. When received, these snails had shell erosion. Their shells are completely healed now and look perfect. Quick shot of my jar attached (most of the shrimp are in hiding right now, but there are lots of them).
Wonder shells work great. That's perfect for the snails.
