I recently got a ten gallon aqaurium, and put a Zebra netrite snail(a little smaller, and is named Fred), and a Tiger netrite snail(who is named Cari). They are the first “fish” to go into my tank, and my levels were all at zero this morning, and after adding them and keeping them in there for about two hours, the ammonia rose a bit, and fell back to zero. I used Tetra safestart to help jumpstart the cycle. Everything was fine and dandy, the snails were moving, so I decided it might be smart to throw in a algae wafer. I waited until about three hours and came back to see that my snails hadn’t touched it. They hadn’t moved a ton either. Fred is now near the top, and has ceased moving. Cari is under a few rocks and stopped moving too. The aquarium has sort of a rancid smell, and the wafer hasn’t been touched, I was only able to get rid of half of it after fishing that half out. I just got them today, and I don’t want to them to already be dead!
