Does anyone know if columnaris affects snails?


I highly doubt that but than again you never know for sure. I do keep some Neritinas in the tank where I have the Guppy-columnaris problem and all snails are still doing what they do most of the time = eat Smile

About Anentome; Nice snails but they do reproduce like crazy in snail infested tanks. My oh my I already have 20-30 baby A. helenas!!! Now I have to find something that will eat them Laughing A never ending circle Laughing

I am hoping mine reproduce because I already have some friends interested in some. Also, I'm thinking my LFS will buy them from me. Very Happy Then again, there's always AquaBid for getting rid of some, too.

So, your snails that are reproducing are in a tank with other fish? I ask because these will be in a tank with corydoras, harlequin rasboras and glowlight danios. I wouldn't want all of the young snails to get eaten.

A. helena, hard at work Twisted Evil



I was pretty surprised when I saw this going on in my tank. I knew they ate other snails, but I didn't think it was so... messy.

I almost feel sorry for the snail. I went to buy an A. Helena and they were all dead Sad

LOL, now why would that be, Jacko? Maybe because you're at the top of the baby list? Wink Wink

I guess I never realized snails.. um... bleed. Creepy. this is probably the clearest photo I've ever taken. Slightly odd subject matter, though!

Was this picture taken underwater because it looks like its on land. I think if it were underwater the blood would all be floating around. Mad

It was taken underwater. Why the angry face? Do you think I'm trying to pull a fast one? Laughing

Here's proof that it was taken in an aquarium:


This is the photo before I cropped it. You can see the rim of the aquarium and the aquatic plants in the background.
