Happy Snails

Posted 2009.06.15 21.06 in Aquaria, Photography by Stephanie

So yeah, I’m all about snails and fish and aquariums and snails at the moment.

When I first set up my aquarium I had a little decoration thingy in there that looked like some old ruins – pseudo-interesting to me, but meaningless to the fish and snail. In my reading, I learned that snails like somewhere to hide, and I could see Speed Racer was definately looking for a hiding place – he’d tuck into the plants, try and get behind the heater, hang out dangerously close to the filter intake, and so on. None of these spots were ideal though – none of them were in shade and he really wasn’t hidden.

So today I removed the ornamental thing, and put in an old (well cleaned) coffee cup. It’s funny how the best things are the simple things. Speed Racer looked at it, did a lap of the aquarium, watched the cup for a while, then made himself at home. 🙂
