What do snails eat


What do land snails eat?

Land snails are mainly herbivorous, which means they eat plant life. There are a few snails that are carnivores, but chances are that your snail in not. Snails love to eat just about anything you would put in a garden salad. My recommendation is to start with some romaine, green leaf or even ice burg lettuce. Snails tend to like the softest and wettest part of the plant. If you have an herb garden that produces far more herbs than you need then try picking the newest leaves off of some of your herbs to see if they like them. Apples and carrots can also be a favorite of your pet snail. The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your snail and bring that to them. During the winter you will have to rely heavily on the produce in your refrigerator to keep them well feed. Remember if the snail is eating all the food you gave him or her then you need to leave more out for them. Slightly rotten food is just fine. They are not terribly picky as long as you give them a food they enjoy.
One last tip: During the spring and fall when your grass is the greenest make sure to cut a big handful of grass for your snail to eat. Both land and the common garden snail love grass and most leaves.

What do water snails eat?

The common water snail is predominately an herbivore. Water snail mainly feed on the algae that will naturally grow on the inside of your fish tank or fish bowl. If you are putting a new snail in a fish tank then watch out! If you have any vegetation in the tank that you are fond of then do not put your snail in the tank. Larger snails can wipe out all plant life in just a few days.
Snails also eat algae along with the microscopic creatures that naturally live in a healthy ecosystem. In most cases you will have to supplement their diet with fish food. Along with fish food cubed up apples and carrots are a favorite. It will take a day or two for the apple or carrot to sink to the bottom. Once on the bottom and partially decayed your pet snails will thank you for the treat.
Tip: If you have more than one snail they are going to reproduce. To help minimize the number of snails in your aquarium you can simply cut back on the about of food you feed your little guys.

Acer Aspire One CPU goes to 100% way too often.


The RAM is the processing memory of the CPU. The system is probably hitting 100% RAM use because you have malware that is running in the background. A less likely case is that you have so many jobs automatically loaded at startup that memory is being accessed to handle all the different processes. I would suggest loading a good malware cleaner like MalwareBytes and running a system scan. If you have a number of malware items (I have had users with as many as 1500 malware items or as few as 2 malware items), the system will be bogged down because the items are running activities in the background. The malware scan should help identify the malware items and offer the option to delete the items (as always make sure you have backed up critical files before running a scan and removing malware items). After removing the malware items (if any exist) and rebooting your system, you should notice an increase in system speed and a reduction in static-period RAM use. As a side note, cleaning the system will not guarantee prolonged periods of trouble-free RAM processing. Malware tends to come from obscure Internet sites that are frequented and will often return if those sites are revisited.

OS Maverick very slow after time capsule backup


Use the App "Activity Monitor" to see what process is driving hard. if not already open: open the activity monitor window. Click the CPU% tab and show highest percentages at the top (should be an upside down triangle) may have to click the CPU% twice to do this. now the Activity monitor is showing you what processes are eating up your computers power. Google the process/es . It may be indexing the drive, which can take a long time. there are other processes too, that you should just let it do. once they are done, then things should be good. Such is the case for me when I upgraded to Mavericks.

Slow scrolling


Scrolling on-line? off-line? If on-line, i would suggest it's the website/internet. If off-line try shutting down unnessary programs running in background. Is your CPU or Memory running high? Open Task Manager, Performance? Open Applications or Processes to see what is using all your resourses, end processes that are unnessary

When purchasing RAM make sure ram modules are of the same brand any type
IE corsair ddr3 low density or hynix high density ddr2 you should always try to keep the same brand and type of ram
reason being the compatibility issue

and always place the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

also check the ram sockets for dust and make sure the ram modules are securely seated you can do this by pressing the levers at either end of the ram sockets.


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.


You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.


Hope this helps.

Mac book air - spinning wheel shows up- slow spped.


install Istat (google it, get the one that's for the menu) to monitor your cpu temps and fan speeds...when you notice they start maxing out, open up activity monitor and see what is eating up your CPU....you must have something in the background running that is causing the CPU to max out...if that's not the case then you might have a defective logic board. ------- check for start up items. thn check with activity monitor CPU and RAM usage, if its okay then check your hard drive with 3rd party programs to see if its failing. ----- Have you tried resetting some of the low level hardware?

System Management Controller (SMC):

PRAM and NVRAM:

Other thing to look for might be temperature (install iStat Menu and/or iStat Pro) from iSlayer.com. -----
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Want to increase the speed of my pc


Hello alanwemple,

Increasing the RAM is surely a good first step to speeding your computer up some. It was my impression that the a340n supports a total of 4GB, so you might want to recheck your manual. And 4GB would certainly be better than 2. As for the CPU, it's upgradeable on this machine, it uses a "Socket 478" chip. Simply remove the old one and insert a new one. But, the CPU is probably not contributing that much to your slowness problem.

Two things that I'd look at first, before I tackled the CPU is video performance and the hard drive. A faster video card with more video RAM can substantially speed things up. And, the hard drive may need some maintenance, starting with defrag. You may also want to do a disk cleanup and while you are at it, run a full virus check and malware detection program such as MacAfee or Norton to make absolutely sure that no bad stuff is slowing you down. And these are cheaper than replacing the CPU.

Hope this helps.

Really slow ,keeps freezing up cpu and ram seem to struggle


Quick test for this is to see what is running using that CPU and RAM up. Press ALT CTRL and DEL, then processes, order it by clicking on cpu and seeing the process that is eating it all up. If you recognize it, see if there are any fixes or newer versions, if not stop using it and see if there is another you can use instead. Otherwise, come back here and toss you top five resource hog processes and the amount of memory they are using here, we will see if we can help further.
