Where to purchase Malaysian Trumpet Snails?
I would like to get some Malaysian Trumpet Snails for my tank. I have sand in it and live plants so I figured they would be a good choice since they generally stay under the substrate and dig. But so far I've only seen some places online that sell them and they are quite expensive because of shipping. Also I'm not sure how many I should get really, I have a ten gallon, and I don't really want a snail explosion which I hear happens often.
Where exactly have some of you purchased mts in person, or a decent priced online store? And how many should I get? Thanks.
The petco/smart near me doesn't sell these types of snails.
If you can't find any locally I'd be happy to ship you a handle of free snails for just the price of regular USPS. Where are you located? They ship well (I've had them survive for up to two weeks out of a tank) and as long as you don't overfeed the tank they won't go crazy population wise. Or, at least in theory they shouldn't. What other fish do you have in this tank??
Thanks! I'm in New Jersey. The tank has a betta and a mystery snail in it. I'm considering a pleco and maybe 2 guppies in the future. Not sure if that would be overstocking the tank with the addition of the mts. I would probably only throw in an algae wafer broken up in pieces throughout the week. Is that enough for them or would they need more?
Yikes, a 10gl is too small for a pleco, and guppies and bettas don't mix. The betta would most likely be bothered by the guppies and go after their pretty tail fins. You don't even need to feed the MTS, they will get by just fine on what they find in the tank. They are excellent scavengers. If your inclined, PM me your information and I can send some to you.
I just tried sending you a PM with my information but it says your inbox is full :cry: lol. Let me know when I can try again.
