actually a pretty decent question. something new to learn about a new animal. At least you noticed, not sure everyone would have😀

Yeah, I saw it this morning, and I was like, just poop. Then I kept seeing it and I just stopped and said, will not hurt to ask. lol

Same, mine look like tiny brown tubes lol. Not sure if the turds look different depending on what they’re doing eating?😂

But I’m sure it’s poop. I wouldn’t worry! Haha

Thx lol

My Nerite snail has been having some issues lately, and recently has gotten better, until tonight, when I also found something like this trailing behind my snail. I think it has been slowing down his movement. Maybe it's constipated? I don't know, but I think it is possible, because I recently fed my snail some algae wafers. I remember @Whitecloud09 also saying that he fed his snail an algae wafer, I think. My snail has been regaining appetite, but that means that he will probably poop more...

 I attempted a algae wafer and he got some of it yes. He might be constipated. How much algae is in your tank? So you added only 1 algae wafer before? Idk much about snails, but i am very interested in this, as I am trying to learn as much as i can about my nerite. Does he move around a lot? Mine, likes to get on plants and clean them off. This morning he was cleaning off my anubias. The poop is gone now and there is no algae on him. Might be slowing your nerite down, remembering how you added cuttlebone in another topic correct? Calcium is so important i have learned.  @Guupy42

I have added two algae wafers before, I am thinking that they get constipated because it is not what they are used to eating.

My snail used to move around a lot, but was recently lethargic. Now he is getting back to being active, but still moving slower. About the algae, there has been more in my tank for the past few days.  I think the so called "Algae" that was slowing my snail down recently was actually poop, because it can apparently their feces can look different, based on what they eat. And yes, I do have a cuttlebone, it is still in the HOB. I also want to learn as much as I can about my Nerite.
