Provide the snails with a clean, fresh, damp environment.

Wash all their food thoroughly before you give it to them.

Remove all old food and detritus everyday. (every other day if

the food doesn't spoil quickly).

Supply clean calcium at all times.

Wipe down the inside of the tank whenever it starts to get


Change the substrate when it starts to look dirty (roughly once

a week).

Scrub the tank thoroughly with a cleaning agent and boiling

water and then RINSE throughly about once a month.

Bathe the snails regularly (roughly once a month).

Regularly check for eggs and destroy them (every other day in

warm weather).
