Thread: Snail out of water

  1. #1

    Snail out of water

    I had a 29 in the basement in dry storage for almost two years and about two months ago put a rock in it (fish were fighting over the rock). So there is the background of this dry tank. I filled it up today to cycle it and what do I see strolling up the glass but two assassin snails... How long can assassin snails live without any water?

    Did you leave the filter on the tank? Snails are notorious for living long periods of time in or on a damp filter

    The tank had no filter, and was completely dry for two years. The rock, however, is a very porous type and the culprits were able to maintain moisture inside of it somehow, I guess. Ghost snails...
    Eveything is better on pay day.
