Frog Friends and a Dead Snail

The apple snail is no more. I netted it from the aquarium as it hadn’t moved for ages and sure enough, the protective disc at the shell opening was gone and the body looked mushy. The real clue to the state of the snail was the awful rotting snail smell. What a stench. I’m glad I fished it out.

The two frogs have survived the night. I fed them blood worms today and placed some right next to each frog but I didn’t see them eat any. They had plenty of opportunity to eat before the fish cleared the lot.

They managed to find each other this evening and had a chat about their new home. I really hope they eat something tomorrow or perhaps they are finding food at the bottom of the tank?

  1. Don’t remind me of the stench of dead snails. I once had a large Japanese Trap-Door snail. It died and as soon as I removed it from the water my whole room was filled with the stench, it took hours for it to go away completely.
