@Algae In Space The temptation is strong, but so far I have left them alone since they have been placed into the tank.

@opae ula related There are 30? I purchased 25, but he threw in a few extras. :smile:

They have relaxed more this morning and are mostly actively grazing. They seem to have found some favorite hangouts. No observable deaths in the night. Everyone looks vibrant and healthy.

I don't know what they find so fascinating about the temperature probe, but over 20 of them are hanging out there. If it was longer, I am sure all would try.

Did you used it in a prior tank? Leftover algae

It is the same with my thermometer sometimes. It's a 5 cm stick they love to sit on sometimes :smile:

Mine strangely don't even like spirulina that much... I only fed the snails at first when I got them.

It is brand new. Just placed in a few days ago. Most of them are still there and near the surface. This is normal right? :worried: They aren't suffocating right? Cause I took their filter away from that corner.

Nothing to worry about

I guess I never realized how social they are. They have migrated away from the probe and are now grazing below it as a group.
