My Black Snail has a wood grain-like pattern. No yellow stripes. /: If you can't tell; I love my snails.(: Bonnie and Clyde are my pride and joy. I wish my Oscar would tolerate tankmates. King simply attacks anything that moves. He bit me hard enough last night as I was feeding him to make me bleed. (he won't be hand-fed from now on. lol)

I have quite a few mystery snails myself. It amazing how fast they can get around without fins or legs.

How large do they get and how long do they live? Mine are speedy little creatures. It's so entertaining to watch.

They grow to be golf ball size.
I have read they will live 3-10 years.

how can you hand feed your fish?

I would love to do that!!!

It seems like you would build up a more closer relationship if he knew the food was coming from me/you.

It is more personal i suppose.

I'd love to be able to enjoy them that long.(:

I had to get him accumulated to me. First I put the food in and walked away. Then I got at eye level with him as I put the food in. Then I put sinking food in and left my fingers in the water. He eventually recognized my hand as a food source, and comes up everytime he sees me.
