Tell me how to breed snails and take care of them. I need to breed them for my puffers. Thank you!
i would get ramshorn and/or bladder snails since they breed quickly and dont have any requirements. just get one or two to start with and soon you will have tons of snails.
you can put them in a backup tank or jar with some moss
Bladder snails are hermaphrodites...
oh well neither snails need both genders to breed XD
do i need to feed them?
yep you need to feed them or they will die just like any other animal
Yep you need to feed them. *sometimes* they can just live off algae if you have a lot. But it's a lot easier to drop a vegetable in every so often
I feed mine cheap koi pellets (what I feed my crickets). You could get a sterilite tote with a simple filter (I have a bottle filter, but filters aren't necessary, they just breed faster for me with a filter and overfeeding). Bladder snails breed faster at a lower temp than ramshorns IME, so I would recommend bladder snails unless you have a spare heater. Overfeeding a bit when you have a filter speeds up breeding. I also put mine in direct sunlight to grow algae for them. All these snails really need is a bowl, but improving the set up speed up the breeding a bit.
I’ve had 2 generations of snails grow in my jar living off of biofilm.
would a one or two gallon tank work?
yes those two sizes will work
