Though they come in many color types, I usually see Zebra Nerites in the shops. . . they're pretty snails, but you won't see much action out of them. They're more like ninjas - they move around, but you rarely see them moving. They don't hide, but they're hard to spot sometimes. Often (especially when new to a tank) Nerites will hang out ABOVE the water line - they're okay out of water for periods of time, and will take advantage of that sometimes, so be sure your lid has no escape routes!
my wife would kill me if snails got out! thank you.
