A thread to show off your snails pics  :)

Here are most of my nerites. I couldn't see one of them anywhere, it'll be hiding on a piece of wood.

Using my numbering system from my Whitespot thread here are

#1. Grey with lighter grey spots. I have 2 of these, this is the one in the betta's tank. They are both 1 cm across the longest axis of their oval bodies, bought December 2014. The one in the 180 litre likes crawling along the glass just below the top of the sand so it is very difficult to photograph.

#2. Orange red with black markings. This snail is slightly bigger at about 1.25 cm. Also bought December 2014.

#4. Zebra nerite. This is the largest of the nerites at 2 cm. Bought July 2011. Yes, I do mean 2011. This is the snail that survived out of water for..... I'm not actually sure how long.

#5. Larger orange red with black markings. This is the second biggest snail at a tad under 2 cm. Also bought in July 2011. This is the snail I couldn't find when I needed to treat the tank for whitespot so it survived almost a day with the medication in the tank

#6. Bee nerite. This is a small snail at just 1 cm. Bought December 2013.

#3 is the one I can't find at the moment.



The white spots on the wood in a couple of photos are nerite eggs. These are the only downside to nerites. They don't hatch and stay on the decor for ever.

Great pictures of your snails.  ;D
I have to admit to having a soft spot for both your #4 and #5, mainly for being so tough in previous situations, but also for being around since 2011, and for being so pretty.  ;D

Great pics and funny you should start this thread as I just took a pic of my seldom seen Black Devil Snail cleaning detritus from my Java moss.

One of my apple snails.

I bought 3 and lost sight of one for a while. I knew the other 2 had gotten quite large but how no idea how large until I found the empty shell of the missing snail. They were 1cm across when I got them now they're almost 2 inches cross at their widest. Lovely looking snails but as I really don't want babies, one is going to a new home very soon.

I gave up on apple snails, they always died. But I can keep nerites with no problems  ???

That's just one species of apple snail, commonly called brigs (Pomacea diffusa). Another species, common name cana (Pomacea canaliculata), grows to the size of a tennis ball and eats live plants. Brigs usually only eat dead plants.

The common name brig comes from Pomacea bridgesii. It was once thought that P diffusa and P bridgesii were the same species which is why P diffusa has the common name brig.

Brigs and canas are the two apple snails in the trade, though it is now illegal to import apple snails of all species into the EU.

They're like 2 little mini satsumas bowling round the tank, the photo doesnt do them justice really, when their antennas are fully out they look very elegant.

I've also got assassin snails, 2 zebra nerites, 2 red onion nerites (Sue's #5) and this weird black one that looks a bit like Sue's grey snail, its rarely seen and spends most of its life under the sand.

Owing to the fact that this site still refuses to work properly with my browser (no italics, emoticons or "Insert image" etc.) I don't know if this will work, but I'll try

This is about the only view I usually get of my nerites.

I get that view as well  :)

I had only just put the snails back in the 180 litre when I took the photos, and was lucky that 2 of them were grazing on the flat stone next to where I'd put them in, and two others had moved onto wood at the front of the tank. I've still not found the one missing from the photos and if I do see it, it will no doubt be on the glass like yours  ;D


But I find the underside view to be fascinating, watching the way the snail eats and moves across the glass.

I now have photos of snail #3  :)
It is about 1.5cm across, purchased Dec 2014.


The snails are in the QT during whitespot treatment on the main tank. Since 5 snails in a 7 litre bucket produced very little ammonia, and I now have 6 snails in 23 litres, I haven't bothered with a filter. I moved a piece of wood with a plant on it, and that should take care of any ammonia they make. But I still need to clean the tank every two days because of the amount of poo 6 snails can make when there is wood in the tank.
Snail #3 fell off the wood into the bucket I had moved the wood to during cleaning so I refilled the tank and got my camera before putting it back in the tank just where I wanted it.

You won't believe I'd just cleaned the tank from the state of the bottom  >:(

In daylight the snail looks black with very faint lines but it looks brown under the light of the tank.

It was a lot smaller when I got it and I thought it was plain black till I looked with a magnifying glass. As it's grown the markings have become more obvious. It looks much nicer now than plain black  :)

Really liking the snail pics. I am delighted to be able to add some of my own!!

In an act of wonderful kindness and generosity, Fiona O'Mahoney sent me ten Malaysian Trumpet snails to add to my community tank. I will update my progress thread after this post but I wanted to show off how the snails are settling in. Although I can only ever manage to spot around 5 at a time I presume all is well with them. They pretty much all burrowed away into the substrate on first introduction...

So here's a few snaps of them settling in...

...On a piece of bogwood with a female cherry barb photobomb


...Same snail but with a neon photobomb... My fish ain't shy!


...One of the smaller ones making it's way along the floor


...I'm actually really pleased with this photo, for obvious reasons!!! I'll just leave this here and look forward to the comments  :rotfl:

Apple snail eggs. Somewhat bizarrely they're hard and laid above the water line. Each eggs about 2 mm across.

Apple snails do lay their eggs above the water line. This makes it much easier to control their numbers - just remove the egg clusters when you find them. Or move them to another tank to grow on the baby snails  :)

small and yellow  :)

I'm going to Crews Hill over the weekend which has 4 tropical fish suppliers including MA, I might see if I can get credit for the snails, apart from the shop that sells artificially dyed fish ( i refuse them my custom on principle) I'm on good terms with all the managers.

The eggs have to stay in a moist atmosphere but mustn't be submerged, I'd have no idea where to put them other than where they are now.

I've put one of the adults in the shrimpery, I'd rather not encourage them to breed. Females store sperm so I might have a few more clusters laid. I'd really like to always have 1 because they are incredibly elegant.

If/when they hatch and anyone else wants one, just pm me.

Have you seen the website http://applesnail.net/ ? It has a wealth of information. Look at section on Care, down towards the bottom of the page.  The section on Embryology is fascinating.
The snails you have are Pomacea diffusa, the site deals with many different species.

Apparently it takes 2-4 weeks for the eggs to hatch, so something else must have happened. I find it hard to believe the eggs have been there that long without me spotting them. That said I don't often peer over the top of the tank, I usually view it from the front.

Is it just the eggs on the surface that have dried out? I have read that some people break a small portion off the cluster and dispose of the major part to prevent too many snails, so you could try breaking it to see if there are any viable eggs inside.

The whole clump is hard Sue, I was quite surprised as I expected the eggs to be jelly like, as 'normal'  snails eggs. The air surrounding them should be moist, which it should be under the hood, there's always condensation on the flaps when I lift them, hopefully it'll be moist enough.

I found this on another forum. The eggs on the left look like mine and the one on the right shows the eggs hatching. Infertile eggs stay rosy, the fertile eggs go white and soften as the baby snail eats its way out.

Managed to capture a close-up of my snail. I did try to "crop out" the wilting and algae-ridden vallis strands but couldn't quite fully do so. [Also thought no harm resurrecting this thread, albeit old, as didn't really want to start a new thread for the sake of one pic, some useful info here, and Paddy's pic of the location of his snail might provide a laugh for newer members as it did for the rest of us at the time.]

My three new snails arrived this morning, 2 x Clithon sowerbyana and 1 x Vittina waigiensis. I put some tank water into their tub, and the two tiny Clithons were moving around within minutes. Three hours later and there is no sign of life from the waigiensis, though it does not smell at all so I'm hoping it is just a bit of shock. I'll give it a couple days to come out of its shell.

The Clithons are so tiny that I've put them in the betta's tank to have some chance of finding them again. The waigiensis is still in the tub on top of the cover glass of the main tank; it will go in there once I'm sure it's alive.

Sorry the photo is a bit blurry. This time it's not because they are moving too fast  ;D The light isn't good enough indoors so I took the photo in the garden, but it's quite windy and I had trouble keeping still  :o

Very nice - hope they'll be very happy in their new home (transitional and ultimate). Fingers crossed for the waigiensis and that it gets to experience its new home; let's hope it's just one who likes snoozing but may move around more during the night.

I cleaned the betta's tank this afternoon and the Clithons were nowhere to be seen. I moved the silk plants (yes, I know  :-[ ) and the wood with the live plants into the bucket, cleaned the tank then put the decor back. The snails were in the bottom of the bucket and since I put them back in the tank they have moved well away from where I put them.
I also put the red one in the corner of the betta's tank but it hasn't moved yet. It doesn't smell and the trapdoor is held tightly shut so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

It has not moved at all. Then a few days ago I found one of the Clithons on its back; I turned it right way up but that one hasn't moved since. And yesterday the second Clithon was on its back. The job for this afternoon is to lift all three out and check them over. But I suspect all three are dead.

It can't be anything wrong with the water because there are 4 cherry shrimps (an experiment) and another nerite in there all alive and swimming/crawling round the tank. The nerite is type #1 in post 1.


Update:
The red snail is definitely dead. Not only does it smell awful but the trapdoor fell of while I was lifting it out of the tank. The two Clithons are now in a tub of water, not confirmed dead just yet.

Gutted for you Sue...  I'm especially fond of my snails and know you must be feeling a bit fed up right now...  :(
