    They actually are underwater and have lighting, they just don't have as much lighting as they would on the bottom, lol, they're just near the surface of the water.

    This is one of my purple mysteries as a youngster:

    I don't know if it's normal but the purple seems to have become less intense with age.

    lol i remember the dress...

    i think the snail your talking about is a jade,but the lighting is bad.

    here are some more,i know you have a zebra nerite but i added that in case you want it.

    if you want to use your pics thats fine,but i think that you should get close ups (in the water,since its better to see details) of the mts and the bladder/pond snail since they are kinda hard to see...just my :;2cents

    The food section on mystery snails still needs some attention imo, they don't really eat algae so it's a bit misleading in that regard. They also need meaty high protein foods to keep them healthy, especially for their trap doors :)

    Aquaphobia yes, they do. Mine get shrimp pellets, omega one veggie rounds (they have a fair amount of meat in them and my guys DEVOUR them, lol), tropical fish pellets, sinking catfish wafers etc. They seem to be pretty omnivorous and really need both to grow properly especially (though babies should be started on something soft like canned no salt green beans or zucchini, the hard stuff seems a bit difficult for them to nom when they're teeny tiny). :)

    Looks like I've been doing it right then ? Shrimp pellets, algae wafers, flakes, etc.

    Oh wait, there's fish and shrimp listed in the ingredients for the algae wafers I've been giving them. 40% protein! Guess that's pretty good:)
  13. Bijou88Well Known MemberMember

    As long as they're getting veggies too you're good! :)

    I've found most algae wafers have some meat in them, I usually feed omega one veggie rounds or Hikari. They're just the preference here :)

    I have large apple snails I can get pictures of if you're interested. They're legal to have where I live, but I don't think I could legally cross the state line with them.
