So, in the process of grabbing some pond snails for my puffers, two guppy fry were caught and scooped into the bag. It would have been too much work to get them back out, while keeping the snails in, so I decided to just take them home, (the store gave them to me free with the snails). So, I have them home in one of my snail breeding tanks, and they ate some crumbled tropical flakes. I just want to know what special considerations they may have compared to bigger fish.
There is no filter in the tank, as I do 25-50% water changes every day or two, and I clean the gravel thoroughly at least once a week if the baby snails aren't doing their job. Any snail bigger than a pencil eraser goes into one of my filtered tanks. I'm also religious about water testing, and go through kits like a child goes through candy.
Once they get big enough, I would likely get a 5 gal
for them to share, filter/heat/etc... but until then, what should I do?
