  1. My nerite snail died after about 6 months. I'm trying to figure out if it was old age or something else. he was clinging to the bottom of an anubias leaf with his foot wrapped around the edge one day and the next he was on the substrate below foot up. I gave him a day to "wake up" and then pulled him. He's been in a cup of tank water due to my wishful thinking but now I'm pretty sure he's dead. Is there any way to tell if he died of old age or other causes? his shell is in perfect condition and my parameters are all what they always have been. I started CO2 a couple weeks ago, but my drop checker is blue with 2kh water in it so the CO2 should be fairly low and my fish are acting 100% normal. nitrates are 25--50, so not terrible. my shrimp seem fine too.
  2. 2 of my 3 nerites have been at the top of the tank for the last 2 days I moved them to clean the tank and when one was going back up to the top I noticed some white growths on its side. I've been battling with this tank to give the snails the correct water conditions because one of the snails has bad shell erosion I've tried putting eggshells in but not sure if it's working I've dosed equilibrium in the past and have wonder shells as well but my water is pretty hard so I don't use those often. My GH is usually around 200-300ppm KH between 40-120ppm oh is 7.8 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and 40ppm nitrate everyone else in the tank is super happy my platys can't stop having babies and even my aenues corydoras are mating now so I'm quite frustrated at the trouble I'm having with these snails.
  3. Excuse the algae mess, but what are those two little ones? I got 2 nerite snails about 2 months ago and one day I see one of those little dudes & one nerite, so I thought maybe his shell fell off (is that even possible?) Or something. I've only ever seen 1 of each until this morning - apparently there's 2 new snails & 2 nerites! My question is- do snails grow shells? Or do they have ones just very small? Also any idea what kind these are? The only thing I have added to the tank has been plants from co-op so could these be some bonus snails? I'm so surprised/confused lol

  6. Hello, All! I wanted to start a journal here to kind of keep track of things and hope that others enjoy seeing this stuff too. I know I love seeing/reading about everyone else's tanks through their journals. I currently have 2 tanks, a 20 gallon and 14 gallon. Both have Bettas with some tanks mates. I am hoping to convince my boyfriend that I need a third tank once I start my new job, which would be a guppy community tank I think. I "rescaped" my 20 gallon tank today and thought it would be the best time to start this journal off. I plan on doing the 14 gallon tomorrow and will add that here tomorrow. My 20 gallon is currently home to: Galadaeros (aka Gal) the Halfmoon Betta 2 Nerite snails 6ish Amano shrimp 5 Otocinclus 8ish Ramshorn snails I started this tank back in January when I fell in love with Gal at a Petsmart. I have had fish off and on throughout my life, but unfortunately not to the level of care that I now know they need. I have since fallen down the rabbit hole and am OBSESSED. This is what the tank looked like this morning. I am currently fighting some hair algae, but it is SO much better now than it was. I think I am finally beating it! Though, it does look cool on my castle, I think. This is what I ended up with. I hope my PSO will fill in the background soonish, since it is all spread out now. I am thinking about adding a background but cant decide between black and dark grey. Gal is pouting because he only got vibra bites today, not frozen bloodworms. Gal likes to rest on the hair algae. And a super cute Oto. I am in LOVE with these little fish!! Thank you for coming and seeing my tank!
  7. Does anybody have any experience with breeding Nerite snails? What is the “easiest” spiecis?
