The gold snail isn't so glow-ie under the light. Actually, he's not fluorescent at all. Sad, though, because he'd be ultra-cool if he was. I still think gold is the best color to select because it's vibrant and visible.

Cool, thanks for checking. I would've been suck if they glowed. I'm going to go pick on up from Petsmart on my way home from work.

I GOT IT! My Petsmart had black, yellow, ivory and blue colors. I settled with blue so it didn't blend into my natural colored gravel. This little guy is around a 1/4 inch from front to back and is quite active. Now let's see it's awesome cleaning powers.....

Thanks Everybody,

I think my snail took some pep pills or something. In an average day he goes around all the walls on the tanks and rides the air pump hose down at least 13times a day. Is this normal....I thought snails were snailish. But, damn I never thought I would be so entertained. A much needed buy!

My gold one is fast and super active. He covers the tank several times a day. My black one just acts sluggish by comparison.

I think people falsely attribute inactivity to these little guys! They're one of my tank's feature attractions, ha! Active's always better than lethargic anyway.

Yea, is it sad that I favor the snail over the fish in my tank (lol). I'm glade I got one, thanks for your help.
