  • My bladder snail.

    He's getting big! He's the only bladder snail I can find in my 10g shrimp tank. For some reason the assassin snails haven't munched him up yet. I think I heard his shell crunch a bit when I went to put him back in. x.x Ooops. I took out the assassin I can find and put him in my 60g. Gonna keep an eye out for the other one so I can hopefully keep this bladder snail alive. He'll be my friend as long as he can't reproduce.

            I suppose I'll find out! If he turns out to be the only bladder snail he gets to live. Survival of the fittest? He's as large as the assassin snails! I'm not sure why they never munched him.

                WELL! It started laying eggs everywhere! This is me, confirming bladder snails are hermaphrodites! I dropped him into my 60g and watched my JD slurp it out of the shell. I used a razor blade to remove the egg sacks I could find and am ready to move assassins back into the shrimp tank.

                  Yeah, they do that I had one beefy one in my 2.5 gallon shrimp tank, and then all of a sudden I was picking out a dozen per day (I have assassins in another tank) and still couldn't keep up with it. I don't keep pond snails anymore They produce a lot more waste than the other pest snails. I just keep MTS for the assassins now.

                      These were bladder, not pond. Shells curved to the left. I guess the same still applies lol. I decided when I'm sure they're gone I'll get a nerite. :P

                        LOL okay. I can't keep any snails apparently. It's actually really depressing.
