As advertised and great purchase

I received my order in 3 days, because I should have known better than to order on a Friday. I received the snails on Monday and they arrived packaged well, in a rolled paper towel, inside a "specimen" like cup with a lid. It was hard to tell if they were alive right away, but I gave them a quick rinse and put them all in the corner of my tank so I could keep an eye on them. Within minutes roughly half of them were moving around and beginning to burrow into my gravel substrate. Within a couple of hours they all were gone except one which was DOA. I received 12 when I ordered and paid for 10, so one DOA is pretty good. They were smaller I guess than I thought they would be which was somewhat problematic because the shell color is such a close match to my gravel color. Anxious too see if these little buggers do their job and multiply over time. Very happy with my purchase and will look forward to ordering this and other products from the Aquarium Co-Op. Highly recommend!!

I approve of these little guys

Very pleased with my order of MTS. Received a couple more than the 10, and a couple more were seen a couple days after putting them in the tank. All arrived alive, with quick delivery. 3 moved around the tank as soon as hitting the bottom, the rest moved over night.
I don't see them often, but I enjoy hunting for them. Especially if you follow the trails they leave in the sand.

Malaysian trumpet snails

Aquarium co-op is Always consistent with their products, packaging and shipping. They all arrived on time and alive. But unfortunately my zebra danios and giant danios ate the majority of them within a few days. A bunch if empty shells now. And I feed my fish well too. No fault of Corey and his team though just nature doing what it does.

Great little guys

Love these little guys for turning over sand. 15 arrived in good condition with only 2 DOA. Saw babies a couple days later. Shipping was fast. Couldn't be happier.
