How long does it take for bladder snails to reach maturity

Post by zoinksberg » Sun Oct 01, 2017 10:46 pm

Hi, first post here!

I've been trying to breed bladder snails in a 1 gallon tank and there are probably over 20 egg sacs and several little babies around the tank now but they haven't gotten much bigger in the week that I've been seeing them. I've been waiting for them to grow so I can have a somewhat sustainable source of snails to the point where I can feed a dwarf puffer several times a week. I really would like to know how many days it takes for them to reach full maturity. I've looked everywhere but I can't find anything on how long it takes for them to grow. If anyone has experience with this and could give me a rough estimate that would be amazing!

Dps don’t really need snails, do you feed them any frozen food?
