Tell her that mystery snails-AKA- apple snails, will feast on any plants in
They are vegetarians, & will take out every plant she has.
Also, they love celery tops, & crisp lettuce!
They are a lot of fun & very interesting to learn about.
I have learned to tell male from female, & that they have a "tube"
that they breathe from when they go to the top of the water line.

Subject: [Freshwater Aquariums] snails and ich
My friend bought six black neons and two mystery snails. He added them both
to his 29 planted aquarium. Now the neons have ich. do we take out the
snails( i think the ich med says no snails) and if so , when he treats the
aquarium and adds the snals back in will the snails be carrying the ich? I
bought three albino tiger barbs and three cherry barbs from the same shop. I
have had no problems with ich, but my skunk botias tried to eat my two
snails so the snails are in temparary confinement. I was going to give them
to friend above to snailsit for me but not with the ich. I didnt even think
about my botias eating the snails.... got to set up a ten for snails and
plants and a couple of tetras or some nice fish. So can someone help with
the snail?ich question? Thanks, marz
