Where did they come from…
Four weeks ago I got up about three am and did the usual, sat next to the aquarium and have a cup of coffee. All a sudden I noticed four small snails in the tank. How could this be… I have added no plants and no fish in over a year. I maintain the biological filter well enough that other then topping the tank off with de-chlorinated tap water, adding bacteria and changing filters; there has not even been a partial tank change.
Well as I may have mentioned before, Mandy works late shift at a pharmaceutical company and does not come in till about 4-5 am. I could hardly wait to show her this strange invasion of the tank. Well… could not find a single snail in the tank when she got home. Four weeks! and not a sign of these snails.
Totally perplexed… Did I dream it, I have been a little overly medicated lately.
Yes! I am not crazy, this morning one appeared… grabbed the point and shot and captured this so called illusion I was having. She is still asleep so I must wait to be proven competent.
Anyone know how long such could have been hiding under the gravel (I assume) before needing to surface… is there another possibility that I have overlooked.
