Seperating them afterwards will be quite a job. Be careful they won't overrun youHarlee said:Thanks ! I hope they are able to breed in the same tank. If in a week or two I notice there isn’t any eggs/babies I will probably get a different tank to separate them in I put two algae wafers in so there is definitely enough food there is only two of each snails in there right now.
Hahahaha this is funny. Was searching this thread but cause you reacted it went up in the list. Just made this pic.that I wanted to show hahaha.Harlee said:Yeah lol I have them in their own tank right now !
Hahah. I’m surprised that the 4 I got are so active I’ve heard it can take a week for them to start moving.DoubleDutch said:Hahahaha this is funny. Was searching this thread but cause you reacted it went up in the list. Just made this pic.that I wanted to show hahaha.
I was looking for pond snails but the store I went to didn’t have any. & I’ll def feed them some lettuce !mattgirl said:I have a 2.5 gallon jar for my ramshorn snails. I actually feed them mostly lettuce and occasionally a pinch of fish flakes or crisps and occasionally blood or tubifex worms. Once in a while I throw in a few shrimp pellets or algae wafers. Little rascals are breeding like crazy and growing like weeds.
Once my assassin snails cleaned out all of the ramshorns in my main tank I knew they would appreciate some of their favorite food from time to time so set the breeding jar up. When I put a lettuce leaf in the jar it is soon loaded with ramshorns. I just pull the leaf out and pick off a few to feed the assassins and put the leaf back in the jar.
I added some bladder/pond snails to the jar a few days ago that came in on some plants. Only time will tell if the 2 different species will thrive together.
