    Finally found some snails at my LFS. The striped one, sadly was an empty shell. So I got a blueish one, a multi colored brown and a grey one. Sadly I got them hours before I had to leave town on a business trip. I'll see if they survived week 1 on Saturday. Hopefully they'll be alive and photogenic.

    I like the big white (grey?) One. It reminds me of the snails from lake Tanganyika .... maybe it is??? If it is.... I'm looking for them. Hahaha

    I really like the striped one. Do you know what kind it is? :)

    I believe that is a zebra nerite

    Well, I have only found 1 of the 3 snails. And it doesn't look promising. It's upside down on the sand :( the other 2 are m.i.a.

    Snails tend to go MIA ...

    My leopard nerite is usually no where to be found at any time, and actually fell off the FRONT of my tank the other night. He he climbed out the back, and worked his way around the entire 75gal and dried out and fell off, and perked right up and went back to his favorite spot above the water line...

    I have a zigzag nerite that refuses to be in the water at all. He sticks to the top of the tank, the canopy, inside the hob, or the once to twice a week outside glass. He goes in at night ive noticed. Otherwise he really hates being underwater.
