Anarchist with snails
 
Has anyone ever gotten extra snails with their aquarium plant purchase? I bought one bundle of Anarchis and got about ten snails with it. They are growing rather quickly.

perfectly normal. unfortunately, you rarely get anything interesting, just boring old snails that can lead to problems if they get out of hand.

:rofl:Very good.

Fisherofmen, consider yourself fortunate, assuming they are pond or acute bladder snails. They do a terrific job of assisting bacteria in the breakdown of organics. Malaysian Livbebearing snails are even better, as they borrow throughout the substrate; but they seldom arrive on plants and have to be bought.

Bought plants...within a week had 100+ tiny baby snails. Tank got sick, snails died. But yeah, they hitchhike on plants all the time.
