I need help with recommendations for what I need to do to my tetra tank. It's 55 gal, I do water changes every 2 weeks, feed once a day (a good amount to supply debris for my bottom crew) tank was switched a week ago from a 37gal and no losses. I have 1 female betta, 3 black tetras, 5 male guppies, 2 fancy male guppies, 4 neon tetra, 1 amano and 4 or 3 ghost shrimp, I want to say like 5 cory, 4 blood fin tetra, 5 red eye tetra, 1 very healthy gold mystery snail I raised since it was the size of my pinky nail, 1 nitrate snail, and I think their poached but 3 of those, 2 glass catfish, and 5 unverified fish. it might sound like a lot but they are doing well. Lastly I have one missing horn snail (baby) who I assume wondered somewhere and 2 black mystery snails bought together and quarantined the infected one. I was adding my newly bought mineral rocks for my snails and shrimp because it sounds like it would be beneficial but when I looked in my tank this morning one of my black mystery snail has a long 1/4 inch or so tube like worm stretching out of its shell from the right side of his neck if they have those. It was half a pencil think. There were also 2 thinks of stringy stuff on the tank by the infected snail and tried scraping the tank hard with the net when I pulled him out to get those things too. Now I'm sitting here wondering what I need to do to prevent my tank from being a graveyard before it happens. (I have no idea if it is contagious to the others).. I only buy from petco because I'm there a lot but I tried pet smart and got the 2 mystery, nitrate, and horn snail.. I have no problems returning them. I just care about my fish and gold snail.
