sarah Posted January 25, 2016 Report Share Posted January 25, 2016 My bladder snails have been slowly deteriorating over time. Many of them are very pale now, and almost translucent. I have been finding many empty shells, though I was previously attributing them to amano shrimp predation (but maybe they were just eating already-dead snails). I honestly haven't cared much until this point, but now I have 4 new awesome nerite snails, and I want them to thrive. One came to me already with the tip of his shell missing and some pits, so I definitely don't want that to progress. This is a planted 20gallon long with tapwater/Prime. The water is very hard, with low KH, and is at pretty much a neutral pH. Nitrates are less than 10. My Amano shrimp in this tank have been doing great for more than 9 months, molting regularly and without incident. I'm stumped. Any ideas?
