Snail eggs

Recommended Posts

Matuva

Hello,

I was revamping a driftwood yesterday evening and found some eggs clusters under the leaves of my anubias.

Those plants were given to me.

I have so cleand the leaves as much as I can, and quarantined the plants.

How long should I have to wait to see any potential ramshorns hatching from an egg I could have left?

2 weeks? maybe less for you since the eggs are already laid for a number of days.

baby snails are difficult to spot. So you would have to look hard.

OK, I will install the driftwood in a bare container and watch closely. May be I will even treat with Genchem no planaria. Double dosing with no planaria kills ramshorns almost well.

You could try using a diluted bleach dip to kill the eggs off if you want snail free driftwood & anubias - anubias can handle a good bleach dip & it'll also kill off any black beard algae that seems to love anubias slow growing habit :)

I forgot about bleach. Any idea of whet the dilution should be?

OK, found it : 1 bleach for 19 water.  1 mn soak and then rince with clear water

Cleaning on schedule this week-end :crazy:

Sorry I missed your request for the ration to dilute 1:20 is the standard.
Make sure you buy the super cheap plain regular bleach it hasn't got detergents or fragrances added. Don't buy expensive brands because they'll have lemon fragrance & make loads of suds. Apparently you can use pool chlorine but at 79c for 2L of no frills bleach it's easier to grab it from the supermarket :)

Good luck with the cleaning

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
