I have a nano tank of just snails no hermits, crabs,fish or shrimp and the nassarius snails laid eggs 3 weeks ago but I don’t see any snails what happened
Yeah, Nassarius larvae are pelagic veligers, so they wouldn't last long in the average tank between the filters, pumps, skimmers, predators, etc. OP, if you want to try rearing the snails, you'll need a separate grow-out tank that's pelagic larvae safe.If I’m not mistaken, there is a planktonic stage for most marine snails that just gets sucked up into the filter. I’m pretty sure nassarius falls into that category.
No problem! How are you caring for the horseshoe crab? These require deep, biodiverse sandbeds for food (or you can manually feed them) and cover and grow very large (19 inches long).And all advice is appreciated thank u
+1. My tank doesn't have a "filter" (no socks, skimmer, etc.), so I guess most of my Nassarius babies succumb to predation.If I’m not mistaken, there is a planktonic stage for most marine snails that just gets sucked up into the filter. I’m pretty sure nassarius falls into that category.
Yeah, you probably won't see success in breeding these guys with that diet (you might, but odds are not in your favor) - various species of phytoplankton have been tried a number of times unsuccessfully in the rearing of different Nassarius species.Nassarius distortus phytoplankton and mysis we also put in copepods but what’s the time period till u see them
