Maybe look into taking care of the plant instead of the snail, since bladder snails will not eat living plants, only the dead parts of it.Siiick said:They are getting annoying because every mourning i keep seeing a floating part of a plant.
I Give them lighting at least 12 hours a day no ferts.FishFish221 said:Looks like a bladder snail, but its not really that easy to tell since the camera is focused on the plants and wood, and not the snail.

Bladder snails are hermaphrodites, and require two to breed, but any two will do.tunafax said:That's a bladder snail. It reproduces by its lonely self and the moment any food touches that tank it will lay eggs. Just FYI.
Maybe they can store sperm or something like that? No one has really done any research on those things though.tunafax said:FishFish221 I completely respect that, however a lot of info online says that many infestations started with 1 bladder snail that self-fertilized. Same happened in my tank, where the single snail hatched and kept laying eggs. There is no way I missed more snails because the tank is 1 gallon.
Something about self-fertilization/parthenogenesis. Sounds neat and fun, but in practice is very much the opposite of fun when I had to deal with it.
