Mystery snails - thrive in 30 gal die in 5 gal
Got a question. I have 2 mystery snails in my 30 gal community tank that are thriving.
At the same time I bought them, I bought 2 for my 5 gallon (betta) tank.
Both snails in the 5 gal died within 2 weeks of purchase. This is the second time I've tried snails in the 5 gal - first time they died too.
I drip acclimated for both tanks.
Use same water source/ Prime conditioner
Water perimeters in both fully cycled and stable tanks are: A - 0, NI - 0, NA 10 - 30, PH 6.4
I do wkly 65% W/C in both tanks.
Anyone have any ideas what might be the problem with the 5 gallon?
Thanks so much!
