New Assassins Snails

I bought some more assassin snails today but they look slightly damaged. What do you think ?

I didn't know these assassin snails can float around upside down on the water surface, pretty cool watching them :D

They are cool little guys and very hardy. I wouldn't worry about the shells too much, most likely they lacked some calcium in the water when they were at the breeders.

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".

Awesome Assassins!

I have been wanting to get some, but I can't find any at stores, and I don't feel like special ordering them. Maybe when I get acouple 100 more ramshorns.

My snails (ramshorns and the small MTS) can float upside down. That is just because the water tension is mostly undisturbed in that area, which is perfectly fine. I have small starfish and snails that do that in my saltwater tank when the overflow quits.
