Dirty or sick? I saw in crawling across the back of my tank and he looked kind of gross
Sometimes snails seem to produce more slime than usual and it gets everywhere. That looks like snail poo mixed with slime. If it persists it may indicate a problem but I wouldn't worry just yet
Is there a lot of organic waste in your water
not that i know of. I have Java fern thats not doing well but i prune it all the time and i keep up on my water changes. should i clean him off?
Some people use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean their snails. Just be super careful, and don't snag his flesh with it.
I would just swish him around in the water if it only on the shell
So what would the problem be if it got worse so i know what to do?
I guess he was sick. He wasn't eating and passed away
Sorry to hear
Sorry to hear that.
