Snail Q's

Just updating....I decided to check on my 3 snails...who I had named Granny Smith.

I think my goldfish ate them. Their shells are empty and their trapdoors aren't attached anymore.

Is this common? I'm not sure if I should try snails again.

I'm really not too sure of what happened. :(

It is possible that they got eaten by the goldies. Has your tank ever had a copper treatment in it? If you treat your tank with copper, it is unsuitable to ever house snails after the treatment.

A lot of times, snails that come from the LFS are also just not healthy, and don't live very long once you bring them home. It's really hard to say exactly what happened, though.

I'm sorry your snails passed on. :hug

Agreed! I treated with copper and my snails didn't live.
