Snell Slimesletter ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿ—ž๏ธ

A random happy cucumber-eating photo to precede the less-than-happy State of the Snells.

Doing well, knock on wood. Snailio Iglesias is growing.

Only one Aspersa and two Otala Lacteas left. As you might guess, one died over the weekend. The others continue to barely eat. I donโ€™t expect them to survive. No more riccardoella is visible, but I continue to treat with hypoaspis.

Not babies anymore, and have in fact begun to mate. I hoped to have culled the ones that werenโ€™t quiteโ€ฆ rightโ€ฆ for their own well-being. And some definitely arenโ€™t, but two in particular are struggling with serious deep retraction syndrome. One seems unable to โ€œrightโ€ himself within his shell, and canโ€™t come out most of the time. He is not sick, just not โ€œrightโ€. Iโ€™m guessing poor genes. I believe he is suffering as a result and I am considering possibly euthanizing him.

After my horror of finding riccardoella there too, I began a very aggressive hypoaspis treatment. No news in that regard. Iโ€™m going to continue to treat aggressively for months going forward. Iโ€™m just sad about it.

Thatโ€™s basically it, I just wanted to give an update on snells. Itโ€™s been pretty stressful, I wonโ€™t lie.
