    Blue Mystery Snails

    Post by Angelbaby on Tue Feb 23, 2010 10:23 pm


    I got these guys just before christmas and they have grown to more than a inch. I really enjoy watching them. They move faster than you would think.

    This is a pic of one of my snails at feeding time using it's "foot" as a syphon to send particles right into it's mouth. They are awesome!


    This snail looks white but the camera washed it out. I love watching them and the angels....great fun! popcorn

    What type of fish do you have? I don't think most any fish can eat a japanese trapdoor snail once the snail gets big enoughXD

    Big apple snail are the best. The ones around the size of a softball. Steamed with garlic and butter make a meal.

    Malawi Haps and Peacocks and a few Mbuna, i know like like 10 of them eat crustaceons, so i would think that would mean snails.

    My loaches would pop open the trap door and lunch on these as they hit the water . I keep assasin snails in my plants to control the population of common snails that are throughout my system . There are no loaches in the plants so the assasins control the population in those tanks hypotheticaly anyway . The loaches munch them everywhere else as they are a food source for the loaches

    I have friends who just have tanks full of snails....not me....Iz like the fishies too.... Smile I don't like the common snails, these guys lay their eggs above the water line so they are easy to control if you want to. Cool guys to have in your tank!

    I do travel and enjoy local delicacies, as long as they are not snails, or genitalia. Other then that I have tried a lot from pickled pigs feet, to that chocolate and hot sauce thing.
