Water tests? What are the parameters you are getting back?I’ve done several
Well you wont know for sure until you do test. Come back with the results before you try to change anything OK? Messing with pH can be bad news if not done correctly.Will do they are eating though I think the ph is too high but I’ll test it when I get a kit
How many mystery snails do you have? What size tank are they in?Oh no nvm they are using the “snorkle” what do I do?
Yeah, 10% a day. Test it the next day before you change more to see where it is. We will see what mattgirl has to say about the mysteries first though.Kk so like 10% a day or how often?
Since you are able to test the water now please share the numbers with us. Without knowing the parameters of your water we can only guess at what's going on.I got a test kit like I said and the owner said to grind it up. Hmm maybe I’ll try a different pet store then. I’ve got two mystery snails in a 10 gallon and 5 baby nitrites I know it’s a bit much but they were fine until about a week ago
I just bought the kit yesterday
Ouch, most of our water pets don't like drastic changes like this. It will take some work but what I would do is water changes to get the pH up to the same level as your tap water. Once done I would leave it alone. Your snails have already gone through a lot.It was at 8.2 but I’d now at 7
Do you have a filter on this tank? Instead of an air stone I would be running a sponge filter instead.Ok thanks so much
But how do I fix my snails at the surface
Should i add another air stone?
Parameters look good so shouldn't be affecting them. 80 is a bit too high and may be why they spend a lot of time at the top. StarGirl is right. turn the heater down a bit. mid 70's is high enough for themMy pear items are
ph 7 ppm
nitrate between 0 and 5 ppm
It isn't unusual at all for mystery snails to hang out at the top of the tank. My main concern would be if they never went down. They should be exploring all levels of the tank.Peramiters
They seem fine most of time when I’m feeding them
I’ve also found these egg things what are they?
Also thanks for all the help i appreciate it
I think they mean the eggs on the tip of the airstone.Parameters look good so shouldn't be affecting them. 80 is a bit too high and may be why they spend a lot of time at the top. StarGirl is right. turn the heater down a bit. mid 70's is high enough for them
the water changes are going to gradually raise the pH. Don't worry about it and don't add anything to lower it.

If you are talking about the kinda orange looking thing I think it is a clutch of mystery snail eggs. Normally they will lay them right above the water line. I have to wonder if one of yours laid it above the water line and it fell in the water. I would remove it and dispose of it. It isn't going to hatch.
You may want to keep a close eye on the tank and remove any other clutches of eggs whenever you see them. If you allow them to hatch you could easily end up with hundreds of mystery snails. I allowed one clutch to hatch and ended up with 70 of them. I lost a few along the way but now have 45 adults that are big enough now to start laying eggs themselves.
A closer look tells me you are right. Those do look like "pest" snail eggs. Those haven't been mentioned so I didn't even consider it.I think they mean the eggs on the tip of the airstone.
Yes they are considered that. Dont over feed and they should be ok. They are really good cleaners. You can remove the egg sack so it doesnt hatch.umm the eggs are on the glass it just a bad photo and are rams horns pest snail?
Absolutely. Is there just the snails in there right now? Or do you not have the 10g yet?I would like them to hatch as I am getting a bigger tank do u think a 10 gallon is big enough for a female
