  • Mystery Snails and Ramshorn are expected today

    I'm getting some snails today in the post and I'm excited. I'm not usually a snail person, but after seeing pictures of a purple one I knew I wanted one. I looked at my local lfs and chainstores but all they sell are brown/ivory ones and I'm glad I'm getting them from a fellow forum member than a store.

    They will be going into my shrimp tank (10 gallon) and when they get big enough I was thinking of transferring them into my main tank, but I'm not sure because I have assassins in the main tank.

    I remember pictures of your assassin army dude... If remember right you said you don't actually feed them and they still multiply... I would not risk it just because those snails would be like having candy for the first time to them...

      Yeah, I just didn't know if the Assassins will take down a larger snail, but I don't want to risk it. I am thinking of breaking down the 10g and making it into a 20 long shrimp tank to give the snails more room.

        yeah assassins are actually pretty smart, they will work in groups to take down larger snails if there isn't enough little ones...

        lol i like the idea of expanding the shrimp colony

          If you have multiple assassins, I've definitely heard first-hand from people who have lost mysteries to assassins. I definitely wouldn't do it.

          You owe us pictures, of course

                  Nope. It isn't. I've checked the tracking # and my mailbox. He/She is running late today which I'm annoyed.

                    They are so tiny. I know that 3 ramshorn and 2 Blue Mysteries are alive because they started moving the moment I put them in the tank.

                            Glad they arrived safely. I've heard of a few shipping methods from various forums and that seems to be working well so far. I hope the others are alive!
