Our snail aquarium

by cjj on April 11, 2011

Our aquarium is for snails. Now that we have eliminated all the nasty worms the snails are looking a lot happier! We’ve a variety of native snails, and we have apple snails. One apple snail is called Zoro because he had a big slash mark on his shell when we got him. The other is called Arnold because he liked to lift things, especially giant pieces of old wood. He doesn’t any more, but when he was new he often buried himself under a big piece of wood in the gravel. He might have done that to try to keep the worms off him, we have no idea. And we have lots of smaller apple snails that hatched from eggs that really should have been infertile because we only had the one snail at the time she laid them. And she had been alone for a few months.
Apple snails are so graceful. Absolutely beautiful to watch slide up the glass, through the plants and glide back down to the bottom. Great to see them happy and relaxed, laughing and chatting with each other, not a care in the world 🙂
