Went to do my weekly PWC
earlier - and I noticed one of my Cardinals missing. I thought nothing of it and went on doing my PWC
, while I was siphoning out the gravel and water, I noticed my Stromb snail hadn't moved in about a week. So I picked up the shell, and all this gooey STINKY sludge came out. I mean this smelled HORRIBLE (hermits didn't clean him up).
To make things worse, I found the cardinal... stuck to the back of the power head.
I continued doing the PWC
, and noticed that the tank now smelled like the rotting snail... I have another batch of water being made up, so I will do another 20% water change.
Has anyone heard of a dead snail stinking out the whole tank?
Will this damage the remaining inhabitants?
Will get parameters up shortly.
