Thanks Kev, will try your suggestion...we very well may have had him over a year, he was one of the original critters that my daughter first had in a fish bowl, then went into an un-cycled 10 gallon, then when through a fish-in cycle

We are not short on snails, we have 1 other mystery adult, 1 golden Inca adult, and like 6 mystery juvies....who somehow survived the snail egg sac removal we did some weeks back

He's floating this morning, trapdoor barely open...no noticable stench...will probably euthanize today...thanks for your help
