    I got a white mystery snail for my 75gal originally, but decided to add the cutie to my axolotl tank...

    Will they eat the snail?

    They're juvies (still pretty small) and the snail is pretty big...

    I can always move the snail to the 75gal if I need to...

    Just want opinions :)

    And I've missed you guys!

    As long as the snail is bigger than their head. :) I housed my juvi with a mystery snail, and now he lives with a giant snail.

    Hi, I have a couple of snails in with my axolotl and they have never offered to go after them. This is not researched but personal experience. :)

    That's why I always come to this forum, personal experience ;)

    I was more worried about the lotls thinking that the snails antenne are lunch!

    I'll keep a watchful eye and if I decide the snail is threatened, I'll move it to the 75!

    thanks! :)

    Well, the snail is MIA but I see it's poop on the sand...

    Let's see where it pops up!
