Hi guys ! I am happy to report that I too have jumped on the snail bandwagon I received my purple mystery snail in the mail yesterday from Daniel E.... and the little dude has been doing great so far ! I have dubbed him/her 'Lucky' as shortly after receiving him/her in the mail I received notification that I was accepted for transfer into my top choice college (pretty awesome, eh? ) anywho, I have a few questions as I am new to snail care: 1. are snails as sensitive to water quality as goldfish are? I am temporarily keeping Lucky in a bowl for observation so that any potential yuckies on his shell aren't transferred to mochi's tank. 2. as far as feeding goes...how long should i leave food in his bowl and how often should he be fed ? 3. how often do i need to change is water? i am going away for three days this week- will Lucky be okay? or should i have my boyfriend do daily water changes for him? thanks guys, will post pictures soon !
