Ok here’s the deal , I have 24 apple/mystery snails in a tank by themselves , they have calcium blocks and they get shrimp every night plus they get bottom feeder wafers . So here is my problem , they are eating each other , there Cana also ! How do I stop this
These are young snails , our first babies , originally in a 30g ,once eggs were laid they were move to a 5.5g , this is were they are now . The tank is planted and a fake barrel and small rock , things to climb on . Water temp is 78 degree’s PH , ammonia , nitrite and nitrate are perfect . The largest snail is the size of a nickel and the smallest is the size of a dime.They get 6-8 hours of light each day . Any help you can offer is appreciated , Thank you .
They are being given more than usually amount of food and they are eating each other through the shell which makes me think they need calcium but they. Get enough , once they eat a block down it is replace immediately .
Are they Canas? The one I had years ago was a hunter, she would balloon down and attack my kuhli loaches and the ADFs I had at the time. Took me a while to figure out who was doing it. I even tried feeding cat food to supply more protein but she wanted to eat anything she could get ahold of!
