I Gots some snails

Hey all,

Last time I was at the LFS I had the guy throw a couple snails in the bag, They were tiny, its been a few weeks and I now have 3 snails and one of them has tripled in SIZE LOL! So their breeding, Question is what kind are these, I looked on the site couldn't find anything, I took a few pics, Soon as I find out I can do some reasearch on them :).

Thanks in advance

Don

I agree they look like pond snails, be sure not to over feed your fish because they will multiply like crazy. LOL

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

they are laying egs on my plants, but my fish are eating them all before they can hatch, thats why in a month I only have one extra :) I only feed my fish twice a day.
