Ventilation

Therefore, inside the cage to equip water (and if you allow the size – a fountain) and carefully dose of fresh air through regulating the size of vents. In this case, is unacceptable to leave large gaps for ventilation, for example, tightly closed terrarium with a piece of glass (in this case, the clam can move the window and climb out). At the bottom, place a damp (but not wet) soil, mix it with granular activated carbon in a ratio of 6:1-7:1. For decorating terrariums make good use of pieces of limestone bizarre. Additional information is available at Robert Speyer. Folded pile in one corner of the cage, they will provide snails not only shelter but also necessary for the construction of the shell calcium. In dwelling snails need to maintain the highest possible purity. This will reduce the risk of animal nematodes, mites and other pathogens.

Mating occurs in early spring (in the nature – after exiting hibernation). The ritual of courtship in snails quite long. Both mollusk become the "face" to each other so that the soles of their feet touching, and stretched horizontally. At this time, they touch each other with their tentacles. For mutual stimulation of partners shoot at each other so called "love darts", is an acute calcareous formation length of about 1 cm This provokes copulation. In favorable conditions, snails may mate several times a month. The clutch of several dozen white, enclosed in a hard shell eggs with a diameter of several millimeters, the snails are placed on wet ground, often in a pre-dug deeper. If you want to keep laying, parents, in order to avoid cannibalism, it is better to transplant into another container, and in trying to ensure continuity of climate. After 3-4 weeks, depending on soil temperature, the eggs hatch the tiny snails, a kind of miniature copies of adults. They crawl quickly to the cage and begin to live an independent life. Food for the them are grated vegetables and fruits. Diet of small snails desirable maximum diversity. Under suitable feeding conditions and high humidity, snails grow quickly and become sexually mature by the year.

This was due to the fact that the bath was associated with a rustic way of life, and urban population would keep pace with the times. The emergence of new models of stoves gave impetus to a revival of interest in the traditions of Finnish saunas. Prior to 1870, urbanization was held Finland to a party. Then began to appear stone buildings and apartment blocks, lined with water and conduct electricity. In the early 19 century there were a surprising innovation – a bath, and the European innovation acquired in the eyes of the Finns continental Chic and sauna seemed old-fashioned and rustic.

At the end of World War ii in , there were about 150 public baths, and in 2000 left only two. The third epoch in the history of the sauna came with the spread of electrical stove to replace the fryer and stoves with chimneys.

Inverse image of an electric stove was invented in the late 30th years. However, the war halted economic development until the end of 40th years. Electric stove appeared safe and easy to use. All that is needed – push a button and an electric voltage will heat the stones. As for the electric stove does not need a chimney, a sauna can be built anywhere, even in the next room, which is natural impossible with a stove, melt wood. Electric sauna will finally solve the problem with public baths. With the 50-ies of baths were built in the basements of apartment buildings, so that they could use of tenants. And now almost all the apartments are equipped with individual sauna next to the bathroom, which is a feature of Finnish urban housing. These mini sauna equipped now and in the hotel rooms. A Finnish addition to the international standard.
