So last night, around 11p.m. my gold Inca mystery snail managed to climb up my HOB
filter and out. Fell off the tank, hit the desk and then the floor, luckily, she landed on a piece of styrofoam or I think it would be even worse if that's possible...
I've found 3 large pieces of shell..
-I had previously posted about how her and my large black mystery snail are constantly mating and it caused a 'V' chip in her shell right where her female organ apparently is..
Anyways, I was certain she was dead. But when I picked her up, she retracted.. not much shell to retract into, but she tried!
So I put her into a breeder box.
So much is exposed that I dont know how she is alive!
She is still climbing and seems 'okay'
I do not want her to suffer though..
I will attach some pictures..
It looks like her lung sac is visible.. and she has only the circle center part of her shell left and her operculum is still attached. There is also stil a small piece of the front (near her head) that is still attached..
Should I try to repair her with eggshell??
Or should I put her out of her misery? Is she suffering?
I do not know what to do for her.
And I feel like she is still trying so hard as she continues to climb all over the sides of the breeder box...
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated..
I truly LOVE this snail. And I would hate to lose her.
But I would hate for her to suffer even more so...
