Hi There, I have just found a totally empty shell in my tank of baby fulica (about 2cm) . I really dont understand what has happened. I bath the snails and give them fresh food everyday and they all seemed fine last night, but I have just looked in the tank and the was a shell sat on the top with absaloutley nothing in it. am I bathing them too often?? is there anything I have done wrong?? I was all of their food and all of my other snails seem ok. Can someone help??
this happens alot, don't worry not all babies make it, we don't know though whether the other babies eat the dead snail or being so small it decomposes very quickly, but nothing to worry about, it nearly aways happens :-)
I have seen some of my snails eat each other. This was when I left one snail in the tank because I wasn't sure whether it was dead or not. A short while later I found my other snails eating him!!!! Why would other snails do this??? :oThey could have eaten the food, but instead they chose another snail!
