    I got for free at petco. They are only a few millimeters in diameter, so the photos are not so great. Sorry in advance for that.

    Looks like a bladder snail to me.

    so...do they make good aquarium pets?

    I think they are more of a pest than anything.

    uh oh...

    turns out they take over aquariums rather quick. I better move them to my aux tank

    Or just get rid of them, they'll take over that tank too lol

    They don't breed as quickly if there isn't much food fwiw.

    the aux tank is nothing but water. Nothing else is in there. I'm curious to see what they grow into. maybe I'll get an assassin snail to feed off of them.

    If you don't overfeed, they shouldn't be much of a problem! I have some in one of my tanks and they're not a problem at all.
