BMBLSAD Posted January 19, 2022 Share Posted January 19, 2022 I have a 14g tank with 5 mystery snails. They all came from the same snail clutch that I overlooked in a different tank, so they're all about 6 months old. Usually, they're busy climbing to the top of the tank and jumping off to do their version of para-snailing. But, about 3-4 days ago I noticed them all huddled up in the back corner. Sometimes they sleep so I didn't worry too much at first. But, they're still doing it so now I'm worried. They aren't closed up completely and have their little siphons out, and their tentacles are all sad and droopy. I don't feed anything with copper. Mostly they get snello, blanched spinach, fresh zuke slices, and algae wafers. I have snails from the same clutch in other tanks and they are doing fine. Water parameters (API test kit): Ammonia: 0 Nitrites: 0 Nitrates: 20 pH: 8.2 GH: 161ppm (9 drops) (my water is really, really hard) KH: 15 degrees Temp: 76.5 F Water changes: weekly about 40% (conditioned with prime) Ferts: Weekly doses of Easy Green, Easy iron, & Seachem potassium I did a 40% water change today, and moved them all to the front. They all moved since then but not far from where I had placed them. Attached are 2 pics. The first shows them munching happily on zucchini. I took that Dec 30. The other shows them today looking tired and worn out. I don't know what could be wrong. Why would they hang at the bottom with their siphons sticking out? Besides moving them to quarantine, is there anything I could/should do to help them? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
