So, happy anubis but potentially unhappy snail. He's had a defect for a long time, but when he decided to let me see him, I noticed that it was much worse. From what I've read it's probably due to lack of calcium, and for some reason my PH is out of whack. It normally runs 8.0-7.8 but after the trip it was 6.8. I did a 25% change Wednesday night which brought ph up to 7. I'm going to do a thorough vacuum and 50% change on Friday night. Here's a couple of photos. The suggestion I found in a write up was to super glue egg shell pieces to him if it hadn't gone through to the body. So he looks weird, but he's not interested in eating the egg shell I put in the tank. Any suggestions on getting calcium into my snail?
No announcement yet.
