I understand that I may have maybe overfed them at first making them less interested and now feed much less but I wondered if anyone knew anything about it?
I have begun trying to "ween" them on to snails by puting them into a seperate zone and scattering different sized snails around to get them interested.
Ramshorns are also pretty easy for Loaches to eat. The shells form a flat spiral. Some seem to have very red bodies, others are brown shelled with white stripes. I think the white stripes are shell damage from poor calcium supply or acidic water.
Malaysian Trumpet Snails have a very tough shell, and any fish that eat them have usually figured out how to suck the snail out of the shell. MTS have a sharp point at one end, and are narrow and conical. They may be any of several shades of black, brown or tan.
All three will live in fresh and in low end brackish tanks.
Happy fish keeping!
