This morning I woke up to find Goliath dead. He was my first snail. Snailbert died last Tuesday of mantle collapse. I could see no obvious indications of cause of death in Goliath, so I am assuming it was old age. He was still showing new shell growth, but didn't actually seem to be getting bigger. I also had a fish die (in a different tank) this week from old age, and I see a second fish developing a hump as the other one did. I don't think anything I did caused the death of Goliath, but still feel bad. Thanks for listening.

Amber, please don't think it's anything you could have avoided. It's what we call 'mysterious' snail deaths that happen more then we like. 1 day they seem healthy and doing great, the next day they die.

Thanks debbs. I can't find the one that looked pitiful this morning, but I'm not going to worry about it. My 5.5 now only has 2 ADFs. Thanks again debbs. Snailbert looked a lot like the snail in your avatar. Goliath was a gold.

Sorry Amber :-(

Sully please explain to me why my teen son took pond snails out of his tank and put them in my new "pest snail free" tank. I could beat him. When you can explain why he did that I'll tell you the secret of getting rid of all pest snails at one time, and only within a few minutes!
