Hey everyone, I haven't been on in a while. I was busy and plus the snow alone kept me busy enough, so far in March they say we got 101cm so I've been doing lots of shovelling. so I figured I would post an update on my Oscar. He's still doing awesome and seems to be very healthy. I noticed I was getting some algae and I just wanted something different so I got 2 snails. So far he ignores them. Having them in there don't seem to bother him so hopefully things stay that way lol. I'm not even sure what kind they are, they came from pet smart but now I'm just keeping an eye on him hoping he don't harm them.

Well spring is nearly here, it's actually getting a lot warmer here in the UK, although I believe it's going to be quite cold next week. Today has been lovely in the sun. As long as the snails are not too small then you shouldn't have a problem. Anyway, show us some photos, I'm not a snail expert, however I'm sure that between us we could tell you exactly what they are

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Here are a few pictures of the snail. They are still hiding in their shell I read that they sometimes take a few days to get comfortable is a new tank. Don't mind my Oscar is the picture is wants all the attention lol

Not up on snails.. but, concern over the fin damage/erosion on Oscar. Is this new, ongoing? Getting better or worse?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

I had a couple snails once.....Once lol..Sarge was OK with them for a while. They were to big for him to swallow. ....so he would pick them up and smack them against the glass

The scrapes are new they only happened during the night 2 nights ago, he had a scratch on his lip too but that healed up quick. I done a large water change today so they should be healed in no time. They actually are better today then they were.
