A glimpse of my new snails..

Here are a couple of poor shots. Five assassin snails came along with Heternanthera zosterifolia. I didn't know the gravel I scooped had some MTS that escaped the wrath of my tiger loaches. They ended up in the hands of the assassins instead.





More assassins are coming.

Here are miscellaneous pics of my P. diffusa.







Once-in-a-lifetime chance to see my LFBN. I usually don't post her picture.lol She can never keep her fins in perfect shape, thanks to the male guppies.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Wow, those assassins are good looking snails. The pleco looks very nice too, the dang things are growing on me.

Get the assassins, Tyyrlym. The elusive pouch snail finally got eaten by the assassin snail.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I'm running a dilemma with a LFS owner who doesn't know a peg about pricing snails. They're always overpriced. Assassins are supposed to punch in 200 pesos only and he wanted 500 for each.
