    Default TYLOMELANIA ORANGE

    Hello everyone,
    I put in the tank (100 l) dedicated to the Cardinal six Tylo Orange for four days.
    The first two days were very active, now seems to have gone into hibernation (one I think is dead). Today one of Tylo has given birth. The child was already dead.
    Values ​​that can be measured at the time:
    Temperature 27-28 degrees
    ph:
    Sera Test 8,3
    Tetra Test 8.4
    PH 8.6 survey tool
    conductivity 350
    NO2 0
    No3 5
    If someone can give me some advice?

    Are you sure they don't have leeches?
    Did you acclimate them when you put them in the new tank?
    Do they have eaten since you have them?

    Your water parameters seem right. Remove quickly the one that seems dead: smell it you will have no doubt!

    Hi, Kobal
    It was done for acclimatization. They ate a piece of blanched zucchini Saturday. Today I put a carrot blanched.
    The Leeches seem absent.
    The clam and the snail seems dead even orange, but has the obercolo closed.

    The leeches can hide in the shells. They made the Tylomelania become lethargic.


    To be sure the snail is dead, smell it, you will know at once! A dead snail stinks awfully!

    Do your snails wake up and rush to the food when you put vegetable in the tank?

    Tylomelania become less active when they grow old.

    How do I know if there are leeches hidden in the shell?
    I must try with water and salt?
    If yes, what concentration?
    My TYLO are all adults, approximately 6 cm, but I can not determine the age '.

    When the Tylo out of its snail, you can often see, especially on orange specimen, the leech (which is brown) stuck to his head, often under the eye or under the trump, for the ones that I have seen.

    I have already treated the leeches with salt, but you must not let the snail in the salted water for too long, it's testing. I can't tell you the salt concentration, I do it by guesswork.

    I wouldn't treat them without being sure.

    Hi, Kobal
    do not have leeches stuck in the visible parts. It remains only to check that they are stuck on the inside of the shell, but I think 'that this assumption is a little' more 'difficult. However I try to take some pictures tomorrow.

    Hi

    The last two pictures have been taken today? Your snails don't seem to be so lethargic...

    Hi,
    The last two were taken this morning. They have not moved all day. The snail was closed for two days and 'dead (the smell was terrible). Maybe I'm used to very active gastropods?
