I normally would never even consider getting a creature I had not fully researched. This was different. Let me explain.
I have been having some serious problems with Cynobacteria in my betta, Tony's divided 10g tank. I have been trying to get a Mystery Snail from my LFS for the past several
weeks. I need something to start to help control the cyno. After many weeks of waiting, my LFS finally got some snails. Actually, 1 snail. Unfortunately, it happend to be a snail I haven't seen before.
The manager said it was a Trapdoor snail. It does have a trapdoor, looking very similar to a Mystery snail's trapdoor. I will put up some pics
of the snail, but there are details that my camera doesn't capture. This snail has very, very fine black lines in a wavy pattern on top of a copper color. It looks like it has some kind of antennae. It has 1 white spot on the side, and a white spot at the bottom.
I can research its care/water chemistry requirements, I just need to know what kind of snail this is. btw, if it helps, the snail cost my $4!! idk why, but I was desperate for something to clean the cyno in Tony's tank.
Can anyone tell from the description and the picture what kind of snail this is?
