snails

I told the boys their fish died and suggested they give the tank a complete scrubbing. They insisted that the fish was only sleeping. “His gills are still moving, Mom.” The next morning, all that was left of the sleeping fish was a skeleton. We now have a tank full of well-fed snails. Are snails a pet? I don’t mean to sound cruel, but I’d really like to “set the snails free” and clean the tank. Then, we can put a few new fish in there. On the other hand, I guess I can get dead fish for the snails when I buy dead mice for the snake.

  1. I feel your pain. Em got some snails with her tadpoles for her birthday last year. They died in two months, but the snails…they are still living…and breeding!! Apparently the snail sees more action than I do – but we only have one. :shrug:

    Of course she has to keep her tank and the snails, and good lord, i don’t feed them but they’re still living!!!!
