i should just change this thing to "snail log" because i have gathered all kinds of snails now!
today, from John, I received an absolute buttload of water sprite, along with 3 mystery (apple?) snails, and a bonus pond snail that snuck in with the water sprite.
There's a little ivory snail, it's in a 5 gallon planted, with a betta, various "pest" snails, and a nerite snail. I'm interested to see how the betta treats it since he has a habit of flaring at the nerite. also the pest snails die in there a lot, but the nerite is going strong. Hopefully my little white guy does okay!
There's also a smallish, but a bit bigger than the ivory, blue snail. Whenever the ammonia issues in my frog/betta tank calm down, i'd like to add it there. I put the white snail with the blue betta, so i want the blue snail with the white fish :P I'm silly....
and finally i got a great big, lovely purple snail too! I released that one fairly fast in my 29 gallon, and it scurried off to explore!
annnd we named the big purple one gary, because why not.
i know people get overrun by these things, but I hope they breed. I am snail girl. <3
