RE: Trap Door Snails



Hi Folks:

I hate to be a pest about names, but if we are going to discuss snails we
need to be talking about the same thing. See my post of 1/1/02. There are
several snails that have "trap doors" they range in size and species.
Discussing trap door snails is very much like discussing killifish in
general. Without referring to a particular group it is hard to give you any
real good answers.

The VIVIPARIDAE I have kept AKA Giant "Japanese Pond Snails" do not usually
eat plants. They pretty much only eat algae, I have usually been able to
collect killie eggs with them in the tank too.  The Pilidae Marissa went
through plants like weedeaters.



Peace,

~RJ~

How are trap door snails (by any name) on plants? I'm still emotionally
scarred by what some snails sold as mystery snails did when they revealed
themselves to be some other species of apple snail.

Thanks and all the best,
