I am amazed how well these little guys were packaged. I was concerned shipping them in Winter across country but they arrived healthy and in great condition and were snailing around in my tank in no time.
I was hesitant to introduce snails into my tank, but after watching Cory’s snail video I took the plunge. I love them! They did a brilliant job of cleaning the brown diatoms, and they are surprisingly fun to watch. I don’t even mind the white eggs; I take it as a sign they’re happy and doing well. If you have a diatom problem, get these snails! You’ll be glad you did.
I like them a lot. They were very well packed in a solid container so the shell doesn't get cracked durin shipping. Also a heat pack was there still warm.
I got an extra one and I'm happy as a clam (or as a snail?).
I'm just delighted with my new batch of snail pets; I never expected to be so entertained by snails! They have a range of color from lighter green to nearly black, some with speckles. After 3 weeks, all of them are still alive and healthy, eating well, and doing their job of cleaning the tanks. Some of them have been getting busy in the mating department. Thumbs up, everybody!
I received these snails and most of them had a lot of white on their shells, very unsightly. They were very tiny and a few died within a few days. I have other nerites in my tank for a long time, so it isn't a water quality issue on my end. I did order another set that arrived in much better shape.
