Malaysian Trumpet Snails - free

Figured I'd give it a shot!

Anyone need MTS for their tank? Puffer fish food? Loach food? Turtle food?

Can bring to October meeting.

I'd prefer not to have to mail them especially since some folks locally are interested in a bunch, but I could probably figure it out if you are desperate for some MTS...

Haven't counted them obviously, but there seem to be a ton.

I'm still trying to get rid my infestation. I have had them for 5 years and I still can't get rid of them

Thanks again for the MTS. Know how long they will last against a yoyo. Guess we'll see. Maybe you will become my yoyo loach food supplier.

No problem. Tell your loaches to gobble them up!

Snails

I could use some snails to feed to my Psamochromis Riponisus in hopes to get them to breed. I was recently told these fish require snails in their diet to breed. I have tried a number of other things with them and so far no luck.

I wouldn't mind getting some more either. I haven't seen any sign of the first batch since I put them in that tank.

AARRGHH. These things are like freaking bed bugs. I hate them and have a thousand. Those of you who want them --what is eating them? If someone gives me an idea of how to easily snag them, I'll bring a boat load to the next meeting . . .

Assassin snails will wipe them out, but it takes time.

I find it easy to capture a bunch early in the morning, when they climb up the sides and come to the surface of the substrate.

I think my Yoyo Loach wipe them out before they could even start settling in. Chain Loaches would do the same. I think someone here on CCA or PVAS had some Chains for sale recently.

I still have a million in my tanks, even after sifting out all the bigger ones. However, I'll have to wait until they grow enough to be easily collectible for your loaches, etc. Otherwise I'd gladly bring free bags of them to the meeting.

I use the Rachel Jinx collection method. Cut the top off of a small soda bottle. turn it upside down and place the top in the bottle add a few pellets of food and place on its side and you'll have snails in the morning.

I could use some of these snails to feed to a group of rare Victorian Cichlids. Can you bring any to the October Meeting?

I'll try to catch/trap some and bring them to the meeting. No promises. They are still on the small side though.

Still some available? I could use some in my 180 to soft through the sand, I'm local and can pickup!
Thanks

I tried this method, this morning. Came home to find some snails and the bottle and . . . [wait for it]
Two fat corydoras melantoenia also trapped in the bottle! Stupid corydoras. They were none the worse for it, luckily. I'm trying it again tonight.

Haha, I love the bottle trick except I always catch the fish I don't want, sometimes several times in a row...
