My snail will go up to the top of the water and then just let go!!! Is this normal or is he just having fun?!?!
Depends on your point of view considering you bought him, I'm guessing you want to have a snail lolLeeds0910 said:Is that good or bad? He's quite interesting
Well, my mom bought him and kinda left him with me, so him and 4 neon tetras, and an albino pleco made it into the tank with my betta... they are all one big happy familyfjh said:Depends on your point of view considering you bought him, I'm guessing you want to have a snail lol
I have a few mystery snails, and I love them. They are super active and keep my tankso clean. And they don't reproduce and make me overrun with snails either!
Sure, as you can tell I don't know a whole lot about healthy tanks...fjh said:LOL nice mom ;D
You do have some stocking problems if you want to discuss it
They have them in all colors at petsmart!!!Ferretlady said:Until here recently, I never realized what utterly fascinating creatures snails are! Some of the videos I've seen of mystery snails are so wonderful! I hope to have a few of these myself, once my tank is ready!

First of all, how large is your tank?
Do you know what type of pleco you have? (Albino bn pleco, albino common pleco, etc)
Your tetras are schooling fish, and should be kept in groups of 6+, with 8+ being preferable (larger the school, less stress the fish will be and happier/healthier/longer their lives will be). In addition, tetras in general should be housed in 20 gallon+ for swimming space (though you can get away with smaller tanks with the smaller tetra).
Depending on the type of pleco, he might outgrow your tank. Plecos also have a large bioload (just fyi)
