  1. Another two weeks of growth. Seems the number has fallen but those that have survived are getting big. I’m trying some blanched cucumber this time. I had been feeding algae discs before.
  2. Updated photos of baby mystery snails one week later.
  3. After trying so many different types of hatching methods, I finally got a mass of viable snail babies. These babies are from my main 75 gallon community tank. I used a plastic container but instead of doing the method of changing wet paper towels each day I just placed the snail clutch in a dry container with no lid inside the tank. This allowed for humidity while still in the water. Wasn’t sure if this would work but here’s the proof.
  4. I pretty much just left things alone. I have clutches in three tanks. Two Fluval Flex 9 gallons and 75 gallon community tank where all the mystery snails are housed. I had taken them out of the 9 gallons but left the clutches. Some of the clutches fell into the water but they were on the glass above water for many weeks. The snails have been laying more clutches pretty regularly in the community tank but I haven’t seen mystery snail babies in this tank. I actually found the mystery snail babies in the shrimp tank.
  5. Do floating moss ball melt and grow back? I have three that were growing beautifully after I first received but after several months they are turning brown and coming off the ball it was attached to. The same with the moss bridge and java moss on the wire mesh, they are all browning.
  6. It’s been a while since I posted anything new about my mystery snail breeding or lack there of. But I do believe I have finally see mystery snail babies. There are a lot of bladder snails in this tank but these other snails look like the swirl is on the side unlike the bladder snails swirl is straight back.
  7. Thank you very much for this information. I may just end up putting another betta in this tank.
  8. Oh, I had set up a 9 gallon Fluval Flex. I was planning on having just one. It was actually a Betta fish tank but he passed after 6 months.
  9. I have bladder snails in all of my 4 tanks. For months I would remove them daily. They just keep coming. I had learned that I had been over feeding my tanks so I had since cut back But then discovered the intrigue of the Puffer fish.
  10. Greetings everyone. I have been wanting to have a dedicated Pea Puffer Tank. Flip Aquatics and Aqua Huna have been out of stock for some time. Does anyone know where I can get a hold of one?
  11. Good advice!! Thank you both for your feedback. Done.I placed them on some decorations.
  12. I have a Dwarf Gourami that’s been not doing so well so I placed it inside a Breeder tank hoping it will heal protected from the other fish nipping at it. So far it is still alive after two weeks. But the reason I’m posting this is because ALL of my mystery snails have found their way inside and have been there for a couple of days. Think I should pick them out or just leave them alone?
