Man, what is with me killing snails? I just keep doing it and it's driving me crazy.
Remember how I mentioned that my baboon tank killed all the snails in it, even when I washed it all out and filled it up a'fresh? Well I tried again, this time with new rocks, a well rinsed tank, and one very well rinsed plant. And what did I get? Two dead snails. Within minutes. When my snails die they do a little snail death dance. It's kind of like a spasm where they try to get out of their own shell or something. It's sad.
What oh what am I doing wrong? My tainted plastic tank theory seems to be shot since there can't be hardly any remnant of plastic baboon toxin in there. Last time was with filtered water, this time it was with tap water (which very likely could be the culprit this time around). I'm going to let this tap water sit for a few days and put some drops in it to let it de-chlorine-ify and then try with another couple of snails. If they die instantly I think my snail husbandry licence needs to be revoked. The little shits will just have to live in their swampy breeding jar for the rest of eternity and never see the glory of my lovely new tank.
