I'm pretty sure this will be my last snail for this tank until I upgrade size, but I had to share my new baby! Aqadvisor has me at 61% stocked, but it could possibly be a little higher than that due to the sheer size of this big guy. I had to go about an hour out of town last Thursday after work to pick up a gift for my dad, and of course there's a pet store up there with a snail-only tank I can't help but check out. It does sadden me that they don't keep any plants in it, but since it's full of apple and ramshorn, I guess I get it. The snails always seem to be doing okay and their shells always look nice, it's just an awful lot of snails in a tank up there. I was able to check out the snail tank and somehow walk away from it without another snail. Then as I was walking through the fish setup, I found this guy. He was in one of those tank setups where the water goes to all the tanks like in chain stores, only these tanks were much smaller. I'd say probably a couple gallons. It was this guy and a few fish I didn't recognize, and the poor guy definitely didn't have room to snail around comfortably. His shell looks TERRIBLE...but he has the most interesting color patterns, even for that kind of damage. I got a closer look at him and was able to tell that by some miracle he didn't have any cracks or chips and he seemed to be healthy. I didn't have it in me to walk away from him forever. Since Thursday, he has completely eaten my water sprite plant (it is now a one inch stem I'm leaving in just in case it dares to grow back) and about a quarter of an amazon sword. I've got him finally eating snail jello and collard greens, and I'm gonna try him on broccoli soon. I can't wait to see what his shell will really look like now that he's finally getting some calcium and room to roam. Omanyte waves hello! His size compared to my hand...yep, he's a big boy.
