    Tiny White Worms On Snail

    Sorry, that's the best I was able to do with my crappy phone camera. I'll try to get another one at another time, but the worms are only visible when he's standing like that. If it helps at all the worms are the long strings coming from between his shell and the body, they look almost like roots...

    (sad And Possibly Disturbing) Passing Of Mystery Snail - No Body

    Thank you snailwhisperer. Always sad to lose a friend, I'm sorry for your loss as well. As per your question about blood worms, its been my experience that the bloodworms don't sink, or if they do they take a VERY long time to do so. I have seen posts on here and on other forums that suggest...

    Tiny White Worms On Snail

    (sad And Possibly Disturbing) Passing Of Mystery Snail - No Body

    Hi Pringlethesnail, Thanks for your response, I'm glad to hear my little buddy didn't suffer, I think you're right about him being older as he was always much slower than Leonard. I'll be sure to pick up some of those hikari bottom feeder wafers if they carry them at our local lfs, if not I'll...

    (sad And Possibly Disturbing) Passing Of Mystery Snail - No Body

    Thank you both for your responses. I had just recently started feeding them blood worms and sinking shrimp pellets alongside their usual diet of kale, zucchini, broccoli, and the occasional algae pellet as per advice I received from some very helpful snail lovers on this forum. Both of my snails...

    (sad And Possibly Disturbing) Passing Of Mystery Snail - No Body

    I've gone through the tank in hopes of finding a body, moved decorations etc. and there's nothing there. It's only a 5 gallon tank so there isn't really anywhere the body could be hiding. Leonard is also 2x the size Gary was, and it is possible some of his body was left, I didn't want to look...

    (sad And Possibly Disturbing) Passing Of Mystery Snail - No Body

    Hi everyone, It is with sadness that I say my sweet wild mystery snail, Gary Davis, has passed away. He had been doing perfectly fine save for some mild deterioration on his old shell growth and was zooming around the tank until yesterday when he only floated and could hardly hang on to the...

    Mystery Snail Deterioration On Old Shell Growth

    Thanks all for the great advice everyone! I think the idea of getting a feeding dish is brilliant! I'm going to try to find something suitable this afternoon as I'll be out getting stuff for our new 20 gallon. Will be sure not to get anything painted as per your advice Pringlethesnail...

    Mystery Snail Deterioration On Old Shell Growth

    Thank you TexasDomer! I had seen some controversy around feeding them anything with meat in it, so I wanted to be more cautious. I'll be heading to my lfs this afternoon to pick up some shrimp pellets and blood worms for them.

    Comment by 'Kenzie Corson' in media 'Gary'

    @Cleo2019 He is an aquatic mystery snail of sorts, still not sure what specific kind. I posted him so I could create a question thread regarding how to help his shell deterioration and what I can do to help him along. He is around on inch by one inch an he has a lovely red body and a snail...

    Mystery Snail Deterioration On Old Shell Growth

    Their shells were deteriorating a bit when we got them but Gary's shell seems to have gotten somewhat worse over the last little while, but Bithimala your point about the deterioration possible being hidden in part by algae is also a possibility. Pringlethesnail, I'll try to get some sinking...

    Mystery Snail Deterioration On Old Shell Growth

    Hi everyone, I've been a lurker on here for the last few months after having fully cycled my mystery snail tank, and both of our little buddies have settled in great! Unfortunately however, Mr. Gary has been having some shell deterioration on his old shell growth (picture below for reference)...
