No problem. Just a suggestion, never mind. Not being able to get them, I really couldn't have told you what they cost. I think I pay $5 for a Mystery Snail here.

Whoa that's a pretty high price. Where are you located? My fish shop always seems to have a pretty healthy supply of snails for a low price. If any of my eggs hatch I'll gladly send you some of them.

A snail piggy backed and got in the bag when I bought some fish a couple weeks ago. I didn't know what type of snail it was so I put it into a bowl to see if it would reproduce or not (I didn't want tons of snails in the tank). Nothing showed up in the bowl so I transferred it into the plastic breeder floating in my main tank which currently houses a baby guppy/molly. The next day, I saw 3 batches of eggs attached to the floor and walls of the plastic breeder. Dumped out the baby fishy into a cup and washed out the breeder with hot water for a couple minutes and scrubbed. The unknown snail got tossed in the trash.

Thanks, but I'm up in Canada north of Toronto so shipping critters or plants cross border is illegal. Everything is more expensive in Canada. Sucks sometimes. And I'm in a small town and it's a half hour drive everywhere to all the bigger fish stores. I have to pay premium rates at the "in town" one... or the gas to go to the bigger stores. I try to time a fish run with some other errands if I'm heading into the city.

I'm in Canada too... A Betta at Petsmart is half the price down south
