Put a couple in the tank. 12 hours later mine hasn't eaten them even though he's hungry. He's poking at them again now though.

Let me know how it goes. My GSP distrusts anything that is not a bloodworm or in a shell.

A resounding 'nope' from my GSP. A couple of days and he's just kicked them around a bit. Having said that though, he's gone off the prawns he normally eats so I don't know if it's the snails that are the problem per se.

Hm. Looks like something I see @ the Asian grocer.

Well, thanks for the update. I was thinking of getting some even tho I have a healthy breeding tank of Ramshorn. I figure it wld be a good thing to have on hand for easy feeding for a pet sitter if we go out of town for extended period.
