Thread: Baby Snails

Hybrid View

  1. Question Baby Snails


    0 Not allowed!
    About 3 days ago a bit of a surprise happened. I guess my Mystery snail had eggs without me knowing and they have hatched. I counted and it seems to be over 100+ but what do I feed the snails? How to I care for them? Please help me!

    You do not need to worry about them too much. Provided that you do not have any snail eaters in your tank you will not have to do much to care for them. Just keep the water quality high and make sure they have food. Suitable food includes cooked cold pasta and blanched salad. I like using pasta since it is cheap and easy to store. Boil a little, but it in the fridge and you are set with snail food or a week.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    The babies will eat the same foods as adults. Veggie wafers/pellets or various vegetables such as cucumber or spinach are all eaten.

    Depending on what other tank inhabitants there are, it may be advisable to isolate the babies, such as with a breeding net. Be sure that the babies are indeed young mystery snails. There have been many cases of mistaken identity, when smaller pest snail species are mistaken for the young of larger snails. Mystery snail egg clutches are large, pink and over the water line.

    They were laid above the water line, they were pink. I'm positive they are young mystery snails since the look directly to mystery snails.
