Common Pond Snails...How big do they actually get?
I have had these guys for a while and they seemed to stop growing at about dime to nickel size. Is that all the bigger they get? I have been searching for their exact species name to find out but I keep getting other types that are very large and was wondering if they were the same kind of snails.

Now working on giving them a good home..just wanted to be able to tell people taking them off my hands how big they get..
Thats about as big as I have seen them get in my aquarium. I have seen some in outdoor ponds that are almost quarter size, but they may be a different snail alltogether. It would be nearly impossable to find the exact species without a lab because there are probably several that are very similar. you probably could narrow it to genus but that wouldnt tell you much about a paticular species size.
