    Was at the lfs today. I wanted a couple more nerite snails (just love these snails). I told them what I wanted, was looking at the fish while they got them ready, then I headed for home. When I went to take them out of the bag I discovered that one of them is not a nerite. I have no idea what it is as I am new to snails and only had nerite's (other than the little snails I feed to my puffer).

    What is this one?

    looks like mystery snail, he breathes air out of the water through a siphon.

    That looks like a wild-colored mystery snail (Pomacea bridgesii), otherwise known as the Spike-topped Apple Snail.
