Juvenile ramshore showed up last night

    I have an established 10 gal tank and noticed last night I had a new snail! It's not a baby, 3/4 the size of a dime, brownish she'll with dots and kinda a high coiled shell. It looks just like spotted ramshore pics I found on here.

    How could I have missed a snail this size for this long?? My last new live plant I got was 4 weeks ago. Is that enough time for it to have hitchhiked and grown to this size?

    It's definitely possible it came with the plant as a snail egg and I'm pretty sure you have more than one or will have more very soon as they breed like rabbits.

    If you don't want to be overrun, I would remove it.

    Fully possible that it was just never visible. I have a few in my betta tank and I'll go weeks at a time without seeing them.
