The first picture is our snail farm. We've got it set up for our puffers. Actually, I hate the snails less when they're in that little fish bowl than when they're in one of my tanks. We've got mainly ramshorns, and another type (we have no idea what they are). These guys will eat a piece of lettuce into oblivion in no time. Really impressive.

The next picture are ramshorn close-up. They are always hitching a ride from each other. They just stick to another's shell and wait to be moved around.

The last one is one of my zebra snail. Note how even the flesh is striped. I love that. They're great at eating green spot algae.

Oh, and the great thing about snails? You can actually take pictures without them moving about at the last moment like my fish do!

Here's some more snail pictures.

The first two are of my zebra (nerite) snail in what's left of a cucumber. Of course, my ballooney lady could not resist getting her nosey little face in the shot, LOL.

The last two are of my late apple snail which passed away really quickly after I had it. The betta was fascinated by it when it was still in the bag, then she totally ignored it.

Looks like I am the only one posting in this one. Guys?

Right, so here's a bizarre one. I have no idea what they were doing, but my two zebra snails where 'kissing'. At least they were flesh to flesh. Am guessing mating? Or was that a fight?

Here are my mystery snails...

The gold one I've had for probably 6 months or so, his name is Lester.
The white one is brand new, his name is Speedy because he's the fastest snail I've ever seen.
The black on is also brand new, his name is King Kong - "Kong" for short. He's the smallest and the slowest of the 3. He got his name because he climbed all the way up my Buddha statue.

Lester's pretty happy though...not only because he got new friends but he also moved from a 2.5 gallon tank to a 20 gallon tank. It's like moving from a studio apartment to a Beverly Hills mansion.

EDIT: I changed King Kong's name to Baby. After watching its behaviors I found that it's the smallest of the 3 and it likes to snuggle with the other snails. So, Baby it is.

My Apple Snail

I have to edit/resize the rest, but here are two pictures of one of my three Apple Snail's (Pomacea canaliculata)

This is my first ever golden mystery
I've had him about a week and I already have decided that I love these snails

I have dubbed thee 'Steve'. It just seemed right at the time Boyfriend wanted to call it Gary, and mum doesn't like 'human' names for fish-like creatures. Well, too bad, Steve it is

Steve pastimes include motoring around the tank, very occasionally resting underneath the filter. Steve likes this tank much better - there are no evil platy fry constantly nipping at him whenever he tries to emerge from his house >
Steve's favourite food so far appears to be cucumber, as can be seen from this photo. He ate one side of it (it's weighed down by a plant weight), then proceeded to turn it over slightly so he can munch on the other side.

Peaches & Paratrooper

Peaches got her name for the obvious Peach colors. While Paratrooper likes to get up top near the hood and usually gets blown by the current from the Korila and retracts in the shell till he hits sand; then comes back out so funny.

Jabba

This is Jabba, my gold/yellow mystery snail. Snails kind of remind me of aliens, with their weird gloopy bodies, strange mouth and curly antennae. I love them

I got 2 blue mystery snails for my 29 Gallon planted tank! I had never seen the blue ones at any of my local pet stores, but they had them today!

I can't tell they apart, so naming will be difficult.. I'm thinking Zoidberg for one.. and still looking for a perfect 2nd name!

Above tank view of a ton of my MTS, ramshorns, and blue mystery snail converging on 1, yes I said 1 algae wafer xD they act starved...

I woke up earlier to Bull, the blue mystery snail, waving xD actually I'm not sure what was going on but I thought it was cool!

I also decided, after the sad display for the wafer, still going on as I type this, they needed a holiday treat, the MTS as always are first on location!

okay so here's my contribution ( Thanks for the idea, monkeypie )

Had a little trouble with the pumpkin "floating" so I weighed it down with an ornament inside...... The fish are swimming in and out of the eyes and mouth - waiting for the snails to discover it

I use spiedie skewers to hold down the zucchinI when I give it to the fish. When I got home from work this morning, the piece has somehow managed to float to the top. And on top of it all was George, the trapdoor snail, just chowing down. I thought I had a really clever snail until I saw Sarah's picture. I don't know how they can climb up something that skinny, but they do .
