    I need pond snails. Not the long spiral ones or MTS. I want the true tiny pond snail. I am trying to breed the ones I have, but for some reason, they are slow. I love snails and so do my two assassins. Seriously though, I want snails in all my tanks to keep my assassins happy. I want to buy 4/6 more as soon as I have a large enough pond snail population.

    Any idea how to get the pond snails to increase in numbers? I tried over feeding and just messed up the water quality. I've tried veggies and spinach, but still they aren't growing very fast.

    Any one have "extras" they don't want??? I will gladly pay for them and shipping. OH, I live so far from any lfs, they are no help.

    Thanks loads all.
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without

    Patience! These guys do well in water that's about neutral, temp of about 18-21C. Some water movement and a lot of plant matter and algae. Take an old tank or even a tub, place near the window, stick in something to move the water. Plant with some eloda or something else that's low maintenance and let nature take it's course

    I've got all that and they still are pokie I did buy a 10g today just for snails. Already have filter media running in the 20g so cycling won't take so long. I will put as many snails as I can in it and a few plants. Have way to many in the 20 as it is. Even bought some alge wafers for them.

    I seem to remember my Mother saying "patience is a virtue". Thanks for the quick reply. I guess I am just anxious to see more snails.

    Buy a few live plants from PetSmart. Mine had all kinds of pond snail eggs in them.
