  • Snail Attack?

    So, I'm not sure is my ivory mystery snail is alive... its floating, the edge of its shell where it hides is all crooked and chipped away, its cover is down a bit, I see it in there all kinda mushec BUT I think it might be dead.... could of my fish attacked it or something... this is very odd....

    Take it out and smell it. Trust me, if it's dead, you'll know.

      I don't think it's dead... That mucus is created when it's extremely stressed... If you have a QT setup you should think about moving it over...

        Sounds like it is swollen. My snails do that when I do a water change and the tap water parms are different.

        I'd test the tank to see if something is different.

        If he is dead you will definitely know by smelling. You can also tap his shell to see if you get a reaction.

                  Sometimes we miss our aquatic babies being naughty and only get to see the after effects. My naughty angels have finally calmed down on going after my snails but I'm keeping an eye on them anyway

                      My angels do pick at the snails occasionally when they are climbing up the sides of the tank. So maybe it was harassment.

                        Hmmm... Castle my blue cobalt would stare at the snail when it was climbing up the glass even saw him peck at the shell twice with one of the first times but left him alone ever since...

                          I am watching one of my angels right now. It stays back from the snail a couple of inches and when the snail starts to move she picks at it. She did this a few times and then lost interest and swam away.
