Baby apple snails anyone?

These little guys have just about cleaned up anything and everything in my tank they could eat, so I dropped in an algae wafer. I looked back over at the tank a little bit later and saw this.... Just thought I would share.

Yeppers....thems food for the puffers. They love eating them too. They are just the right size for my puffers. I'm afraid though that I still may have too many. I am not sure I can feed them all to my puffers before they get too big.

Makes me think of my apple snails before they became all of a centimeter large!

Are you able to raise enough snails on your own to feed your puffers?

If all the eggs hatched, then yes I would think so. The last three clutches of eggs that our apple snail laid don't look like they will yield anything. But As you can see I still have a fair amount of snails to feed them still, and the larger they get the less numbers of them I need to feed. I also have a huge block of frozen blood worms and a good sized bag of frozen raw in the shell shrimp in my freezer...so I won't run out of food for them anytime soon.

I am hoping to get some red cherry shrimp soon and see if I can breed them for feeding the puffers as well. That way the snails don't have to do it all.
