    So I am looking for someone who will sell me ramshorn snails. I am hoping, since they are a pest snail that I may be able to get some from someone with only shipping included. I don't think I Can get any from my lfs, they don't seem to keen on handing them out :( This is a low budget project so I am really hoping it won't be toooooo much.

    I am looking for blue ones or maybe pink. If you have any you would like to get rid of or simply sell then please contact me. I want them for algae control, and I heard they are great for eating algae off plants.

    Thanks!!!!!!

    You can ask here if he has any:

    Edit: he doesn't say if he has any or not. He only mentions pond/bladder snails, but it never hurts to ask :)!

    I have some blue and pink, but not many, and I can't sell them just for shipping. Plus, shipping is $10 :(
    If you want 60ish normals, I can do that for $12, or just 10 or so for shipping.
    Let me know if this is too much, and no hard feelings if it is!

    I'll have to get back to you lol. I'm not even 100% sure that they're pink but they're not brown. I'll get pictures tonight and let you know what I have

    Sorry about the late reply!
    I don't have many pinks, maybe 1 or 2, getting some more in the mail soon, I do have 3 blues I could give you. Pics are crummy, just moved them to whatever container I had, lol.
    $13 for 6, I can find more blues or if you want to wait for more pinks they'll come later. Shipping is $10.
    If you want, I also have quite a few black mystery snails for free...

    Okay, so snails are hard to photograph apparently. And these wouldn't really be considered pink like I thought. They have a somewhat brown but kind of transparent shell and pink bodies (is that the right word?) Here's some pictures:

    In the ones in the water, you can kind of see their pink bodies more. At least that's what I was trying to show. The water obviously has tannins in it, it's from mopani driftwood

    I have noooo idea how much shipping is. Or even how to ship them lol. It would just be the cost of shipping/supplies. I don't care enough about them to charge for the actual snails lol. I believe a small flat rate box is somewhere around $10

    I have some blue and some reddish brown ones. If you send me your zipcode I can tell you how much shipping is. What size do you want? I would send them on a plant as well. Would water wisteria be of any interest or some Christmas moss? Let me know. I can message you details. I know I'm late to the party.

    I have some! Not as many as I used to, but definitely can get 10 or a little more. They are good at hiding. I have over 40+ of the red and brown ones.

    If you are looking in the future, I just had a few pink ramshorns turn up in my tank. Never bought any, but I am certainly not complaining. Hoping they breed well.
