Is that a zebra and a ruby? They're so pretty! I've heard that they're pretty rare.

Time to put on waterproof lipstick and kiss your algae goodbye...
My favorite LFS had them when we visited yesterday. They called them Tiger and fancy Nerites. I got two of each and just love them.
I have a tank that was allowed to algae on purpose. It has various snails, bristlenose, blue Rams and Endlers in it.

Oh, very nice Carol! I love their shells!

My store called them Tigers too.
When I went to get them they were dead.

Oh how sad! Maybe they'll have some again soon.

Same with mine! They had maybe 30 horned nerite snails, but 28 were just empty shells. I took the remaining 2 home. (I told the LFS worker to double-bag them so their spikes won't pop the bag)

Actually, I think that 2 was enough, because in 3 weeks all the diatoms in my 10 gallon tank were gone and I was growing algae so they won't starve.

Here's one: (sorry for the blurry picture, he's so small the camera wont focus)

I've got 5 of each zebra and tracked... first 2 batches we got into my LFS came in dead, couldn't tell till you opened the bag but fyi rotting snail is a very distinct odor...

It seems they're finally becoming easier to find, dunno how long that'll last though... same thing happened last year, congrats on the awesome snails!
