PostSubject: apple snail falling off glass   Tue Jan 20, 2009 1:22 pm

Hi guys. This seemed like the most appropriate sub-forum for this, so -

My apple snail (pomacea bridgesi) sometimes seems to "lose suction" on the aquarium glass and falls off! He does this pretty regularly. It is funny, but I don't know if he's doing it on purpose and I'm worried he'll damage his shell. I guess there's nothing I can do about it unless it's a health problem that can be corrected, though. Do any of your apple snails do this?

Lol. Yeah, I hope that's all it is. Fighting the nap is certainly difficult for me.

Mine love riding the bubble wall. They fly round the tank & come back 4 more - amazing creatures.

Wow, excellent. Haven't seen mine do that, although one of my cories seems to intentionally surf on the filter current.

I always wondered why my giant apple snail falls off the glass, that's really interesting.
I would like to keep a few more snails in my tank but only have 1 that has lasted for more than a few months. Smile

Mine go onto the spray bar from time to time & end up getting a free ride to the other side of the tank Laughing

Mine goes up the glass, with it's air tube popped up, inflates it's inner lung with air, and than he falls down, intentionally (i think).
It looks funny, because it's big like a fist, but it fells down so slowly, being full of air Smile

So looks like that's no health problem like i thought.
