Zebra Nerite being picked on

Postby gallifreyocean » Fri Apr 20, 2012 10:29 am

I currently have 4 male guppies and a zebra nerite snail, the snail has been in the tank about a week now and barely moves, and doesn't seem to eat at all. Just yesterday I noticed the guppies were picking at my snail causing him to close up, they seemed to be pulling bits of him and not eating it, it seems almost cruel to keep my snail in this tank any longer, what should I do?

Have you read up on this snail's requirements? I wonder if it is ill due to lack of calcium...
