Buckman Posted January 25, 2022 Share Posted January 25, 2022 Hey everyone, Here is the situation. This tank is well established and almost a year old. It is a well planted 20 gallon high. There are 9 harelquins, 10 ghost shrimp, a couple crydoras, and this couple of mystery snails. Nothing weird has gone on with the tank lately. pH was about 6.7ish. That being too low was my first thought. More on that in a minute. Nitrates about 10 Hardness is 150 to 200 KH is 100 to 120 No temp problems. So 2 days ago I found the snails floating at the top of the tank looking out of control. I looked this up online and the main consensus was that this happens and don't freak out. The next day they seemed better, but less active than usual. This morning it got worse and I saw one hiding and moving and twitching like there was discomfort. I tested the water as above and decided that it had been too long since I put a media bag of crushed coral into my HOB. So I did this and the pH came up to a better 7.2 or so. I was hoping to see some relief but nothing is happening. They have had the trap doors shut all day. There are no other signs of trouble in this tank. Ideas?
