I have two Black Mystery Snails, also known as "Apple Snails" in my
aquarium.  They appear to be mating a lot lately.  I am wondering if I am
going to have a bunch of baby Snails wondering around my tank?
 
If so, how soon could I expect them, how many would there be (approximately), and do the Snails lay eggs, and what would the eggs look like, or do they give birth?  I also need to know what should I to do to protect the baby Snails from my fish, and Red Claw Crabs?
 
Thank you
Cliff
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Cliff. From time to time I see a bunch of snail eggs that one of our Snails has laid just above the water line on the side of one of the aquariums in our facility. These snail eggs are usually pinkish in color.

My question is how do I know whether the snail is alive or dead? When I went into the pet shop yesterday to buy a second one, all 25-30 of their Snails were laying on the bottom of the tank!
 
Thanks for any info--

Reply. Hello again Linda. I recommend that you do not buy snails that are on the bottom of the aquarium. I often see snails in pet shops that are on the bottom of the aquarium and not moving. It is best to leave these snail where they are and hope that they recover and become more active.

When we pick Snails out of our aquariums to ship to our customers, we always gently pick Snails that are crawling on the glass sides of the aquarium. That way we know they are alive and vigorous. There are usually a few on the bottom of the aquarium inside their shells, and we leave them there until they become more active.

The way we pick snails is typical of the many details that we emphasize getting right, so our customers get very healthy and vigorous fish and other living organisms from us. I want to praise our shipping crew for the great job they do catching and packing the orders.

I had a question about one of the fish that I own. I have a 2 gallon tank with a Betta and a few Danios. I recently tried adding a snail to the aquarium so that I had some kind of a bottom feeder so as to not over crowd the tank with another fish.
 
After a few minutes of being in the tank my Betta began to nip and kind of bite at the snail when ever he started to come out of his shell.
 
So I have moved the snail to his own little tank for the time being. Why does the Betta nip at the snail ,and will I be able to have the snail live safely in the 2 gallon with the other fish and not be "harassed" by my Betta?
 
 
 
Reply. Hello. I think your Betta is healthy, energetic, and just curious about the Snail. If you put the Snail back in the aquarium, your Betta will probably soon stop nipping on the Snail. If your Betta's nips start hurt the Snail, the Snail can retire into its shell.

Incidentally, I'm glad you did not get more fish, because it sounds like your 2-gallon aquarium is crowded with fish now.

Thank you for your comments. Good luck with your aquarium.

Hello, I ordered some Gold Mystery Snails from you guys earlier in the year and I just love them, once I got use to the fact that I couldn't have live plants in the tank with them. But no biggy there, I just moved them to another tank.
 
Then SURPRISE, September came and they started crawling all over each other! Then SURPRISE, AGAIN, I found all these little clusters of what looked like pink grapes all over the tank! I finally figured out they were egg nests! Most didn't survive though, but as it turned out that was a good thing!
 
Several nests did hatch, now I have over 7 dozen cute little snails crawling around my tanks! I guess I should've investigated the snail before I got so attached to having them in my tanks. But if I had done that I wouldn't have been so amazed by their whole mating cycle.
 
It truly was an exciting experience for me, thank-you.

We have a snail in our tank that's shell is starting to deteriorate. Ive read that hardening the water will help keep there shells from deteriorating but what about the other fish in our tank? will hardening the water effect the other fish in a negative way?
 
Thanks,
Heather
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Heather. My Snails have never had this problem, but I know that Aquatic Snails like to feed on Plaster Food Blocks, which might supply nutrients they need for their shells. Click here for more about these Food Blocks.
