Apple Snail babies

socksApril 28, 2008

I would like to remove the baby apple snails from the aquarium because they keep disappearing. Something is eating them, I suppose. Would they have to be in a heated aquarium when I take them out??

When you say remove, do you mean kill off? Can you reread your post and rephrase what you are trying to say.

I'm made perfect sense to me!! LOL

I'd like to keep the babies and let them grow up a little so I can share them with others at our elem. school who keep aquariums. I feel I need to get them out as the other fish must be eating them. So I was wondering if I need to keep the babies in a heated aquarium, or are they OK at room temperature water?

Does this make sense? I hope so.

Go to walmart and buy a breeding net. Place the babies in that, keep them in the same tank, and the other fish won't be able to eat them! I think the net might only cost $4 at the most.

I agree with J. A breeding net in your main aquarium will help with any waste products, and you can concentrate the space that they are in to help with feeding concerns.

Happy Snailing
