Sorry about the long title...

But I realise how important it is to be specific when asking questions then any one else not members and searching google can find the pages more easily. Smile

My apple snails had eggs about 6 weeks ago, snd now they have hatched and I have about 60 or 70 little
apple snails sliding round the show tank in my living room.

I have increased my water change to twice each week due to increase in waste and possible ammonium levels
and at the moment the tests show all parameters ok Smile

Just wondered if any experienced members could advise me when it is about time to pass some of the little
apple snail offspring on to the LFS (local fosh store) or to other aquarists, as I do not want the tank to become
too polluted.

eg- size of snail, age of snail... or does it matter..?

Many thanks

LJ

Congratulations on breeding the Apple snails cheers

I think most people start offering them at about 5 to 10mm although I have seen them offered as small as 3mm.
