I was "googling" the term Apple snail to find out some more information about my current snail when I came across this site: http://www.applesnail.net It was set up by a Belgian chap called Stijn who seems to have done his homework and produced a very informative website. If anyone is interested in finding out more about their Apple snail (ie, care, species, breeding, deceases, etc) I strongly suggest you have a look at this site.
i got some free apple snails in exchange for my sucking loach but nether has moved since yesterday (i thought tehy were in hybernation ) but they smell realy bad and one was floting do you think they are dead ?
no no treatments v good water alround even put them in with a little washed spinish but they are both now in the bin and yes they did make me sick (this is from a woman who has changed toxic nappys for 3 yrs )
Did anybody catch Bill Oddie last night on about American Wildlife? They have a Snailhawk over there that feeds pretty much exclusively on Apple Snails in the Florida everglades... There were LOTS of empty snail shells!
think i have a cluster of eggs am not sure, everything ive read says that they lay their eggs above the water line but mine are attached to a plant about 2" below the water line. looks like a white lump with thousands of clear bubbles in it. its in my second tank which only has my frog and 5 apple snails in it all my fish are in the primary tank and i have a treatment tank just in case so no fish will be going into that tank, but not sure what to do for the best if it is a cluster of eggs. should i leave it where it is or maybe move it to a small treatment tank i have set up. any advice anyone?
