Are these Pyramidellid snails?

Hey All,

Are these Pyramidellid snails? or Baby Cerith Snails or Something else?

Thanks,

-TheChad

I don't know, but for me if I did not add it myself it is usually the bad one.

Kind of hard to say with snails. I've got 1000's of snails that I didn't put in my tank but were born there.

Snails make babies, lots of babies!

I don't have a clam. I've tried 2 times to have a clam and every time I get one, I put it in my tank and it opens about 1/4 of the way and that's it. Eventually it dies. Last time I bought one it did the same thing, I took it back to the LFS and within a minute of putting it back in their tank it was 100% open.

When I had them in my tank, I never saw any snails or anything in/around/attached to it.


I have not seen any of them attached to my other snails..

What they are 'attached' to is actually a gel feeding block that's for my tang, it got blown off the rock I had it set on and was laying on the sand bed.

They were actually eating it i'm sure.

interesting. i don't think it's your lighting that's causing them not to open up all the way. 150s aren't exactly overkill for a 90. i don't know what to tell you about the clam, except, maybe there was too much flow aimed at it.

those snails will be found on that mucous that the clam makes to attach itself to something. they burrow in from there.
