    I have some juvenile blue ramshorns to give out! Some have leopard spots, some don't. They are about 0.5mm to 1cm in size. 5 Snails per person, and I'll include a couple extra ones in case of DOA. You pay shipping (USPS First Class, about $5). I can also include a bit of pearl weed or guppy grass if you'd like, for free. Shipping from Illinois.

    Oh, I am so close to you! I would love to take 5 of them. Sending a PM.
    Will get that PM to you as soon as my internet stops joking around...

    Got them today. Wow are they beautiful! Put them in my only snail-less tank, a 10 gallon shrimp and guppy, and they are already cleaning up the algae from the redo!

    The seller went above and beyond to provide 7 snails, and a nice portion of guppy grass. The packaging was impeachable and each snail was safely secured. They opened up within second of entering the tank. Very happy with the order! 10/10 recommend.

    Snails just arrived and are eating their first meal :) Beautiful little guys. Once I am sure they have their little bellies full they will go to their forever home.Their only tank mates will be one nerite snail and some regular ramshorns.

    Thanks bunches for the very healthy pearl weed too.

    If they mix with brown they could have babies back to normal color! The trait won’t pass on, it’s recessive. Just a friendly tip

    Thank you for the tip. At least I will have the original blue ones for a while.

    I dearly want some, but currently don't have any tanks for them. If you have some in a month I might just get them!

    If you really want some of these snails a gallon jar would work for a while. Just add an airstone stuck in a pre-filter sponge and maybe a plant, either in the jar or growing out the top and your blue ramshorns should be fine until you put them in their forever home.

    I hope this is ok mods .....Please delete if it shouldn't be here.

    Got my shipment last week and everything was perfect! Looks great and the snails made short work of the bloom I had growing on my new driftwood. :)

    AAAH! I soooo want some! Do you think you'll be running out anytime soon? I want to do a little research and make sure that they play nice with mystery snails!

    Yes I have more! Though the free price tag will be soon gone. :) Ramshorns are completely peaceful and will not harm healthy plants or other animals, so I don't see why they couldn't coexist with mystery snails.

    1 small bunch of pearlweed (5+ stems, about 1 to 3 inches long each) and/or a 3-4 stems of guppy grass. I ran out of guppy grass in the blue snail tank, so any guppy grass I give out now may come with pond snails or brown ramshorn snails.
