    Turbo Snails, baby's?

    Just wondering about this, my snails in my Lagoon tank have what look to be very small baby snails on their shells/backs. Is this the normal ? I thought snails just laid there eggs then left them to defend themselves.There are no fish in this tank anymore, so maybe I'm seeing small snails now that the fish aren't eating them.

    I don't think that they are baby turbo snails. The little snails you see likely won't get much bigger. Most of us with good LR get these little snails. I don't remember what they were called but defenetly good to have in your tank. Its why we pay so much for LR.

    i heard somewhere if you increase then decrease the temp (only one or two degrees) you cause the snails to lay eggs
    i think it mimics the seasons or something
    i've seen the little snails your talking about, but i do have some baby turbo snails, but not as many as the other ones

    Gavos, are those good or bad snails?

    I've seen them before.

    Not in MY tank, but, I have seen them. ;-)
