Karen B. Posted March 12, 2022 Share Posted March 12, 2022 Greetings! I am slowly building up a 10 gallons to house 3-4 pea puffers. However, to be sure I have the right ratio (1m, 2-3f), I will be buying 6 juveniles at the same times (to quarantine together, etc). For the past month, I have been gathering snails (bladder snails and ramhorns) in my 2 community tanks and would put them in a 5g bucket. At first it was heater and had a sponge filter but I had to use them for an unexpected fry tank. Then I got sick and while I would feed them pellets every 2-3 days, and give them plenty of floating plants/catappa leaves, I neglected the WC. Today I did a 100% WC because the smell was absolutely disgusting. And I was surprised at what I found - while in my aquarium I have a lot more ramhorns snails, they are pretty much all dead in my bucket. The bladder snails are huge and thriving. Do bladder snails eat ramhorns or it’s most likely the neglect of the WC that killed them? Should I leave the dead snails in so others can feed on their shells to get calcium? (I do add calcium blocks too) What are the favorite snails for pea puffers? I would think ramhorns as they are smaller? Do you count or limit the number of snails you feed them (if so, how many per fish) or you just throw a bunch in? Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
