    A little grainy video because of my phone but here's my mysterysnail, a little under golfball size climbing an 8 inch plant vertically. It doesn't tip until he gets to the top. Pretty impressive snail balance. :)

    I love to watch my snails do their tricks. I think I watch them as much if not more than the fish

    I know! I just found my gold mystery parked in the middle of a vertically standing fakeplant!!! I had to take a second look! Next thing it is on the gravel...This snail is so fast and always on the move. I got a blue mystery and it hardly moves....is that normal?

    Yeah some move more than others. I have 3 golds and two of them (the bigger ones) are constantly doing something. Fighting over algae wafers with the cories or just nonstop scavenging. I've actually got a batch of eggs they laid because I let my water a little too low. :) Hopefully these ones will hatch, the ones they laid in my 10 gallon right next to the light bulb are no good. I waited just in case but they dried out big time. I touched the fresh ones and they are a little bit softer feeling, and not directly next to the bulb.
