What two cuties 🥰

Yep, I agree little snail. It can't be Sunday, it can't be October, and it certainly can't be time for Christmas decor!

Sometimes the snails just wanna be close to you, especially as it starts to get chilly!

I'm sure grumpy snail's mood will be lifted once their shell is polished clean by the always veracious ramshorns

"Well hey there, good look'in"
What a fun capture of a snails reflection! I love the wrinkly foot; It almost looks like an elephant foot!

I'm sure you've all seen the reel "look at the baby, now look at the big baby"
These two are more like, "look at the itty bitty baby, now look at the gigantic baby!" 🤣🐌🐌

You know though, if I asked my cat, I think he'd say everyday is Cat-turday 😹

These two are too cute together to not add to the Mollusk Mama grid 🥰

Regular beach goers will tell you, "you can't get enough." 😂 Snails feel the same way about sand!

I am so impressed with this new tank design for the Ramshorn snails. Many people seem to think of Ramshorns as a pest in their display tanks, but Ramshorns are amazing algae eaters and in a group add an incredible pop to your aquarium.

Picking a weekend activity can be a lot of pressure; After all it only comes once a week!

It's so great to finally see so many happy snails back in their homes. Just a few more plants to add back, and then just five more tanks to spruce up!

It's so exciting to see a lot of hard work come together. And the time lapse camera makes it look so easy!

I received this tank as a gift many, many years ago. And prior this arrangement, it had sat empty for a few of those years. Once I decided I would going to put it back into use, I spent many weeks planning and assembling; What substrate? what wood pieces? what plants? WHAT FISH?
And how long did it stay in this arrangement, before I tore it apart and started again? About 2 month.
Normally, I would have been so frustrated by the errors I make in an initial attempt at something new. But there is something very forgiving about the keeping of aquarium, that reminds the keeper they are are always learning! and that is good; And that change is the natural outcome of growth.

What surprising comforts have you found in your aquarium keeping journey?

For me when it comes to venturing our on Saturdays I can never find my keys! 😅
What item do you scramble to find just before leaving?

I love how the bodies of snails can take on so many shapes! Like with these two here; the Chestnut is so scrunchy and cute, while the yellow is so smooth and luxurious!

Sure, we may know the water cycle, but what about how that water comes to our homes and aquariums.

Where else might water come from to fill our aquariums?

"Hey! Who do you think you are!?"
Usually when I drain the water for a change, snails 'let go'; But Grimace decided he's going to try out terrestrial life for awhile.

Who else loves a squishy snail face!

An aquarium can really be a lot of space to fill! Use plants in addition to hardscape to create additional snail habitat niches.
Do you have a favorite aquarium plant?

Do you think the bottom one was surprised when it woke up?
"Hey! What's going on up there!"

Do the rest of your look forward to spring cleaning as much as I do?!
Even if you don't, know is a good time of year to take stock of your aquariums and your animals needs.
