Decided to grab one of these since APF suggested i get a snail along with shrimp and fish which I'm glad i did. I dropped this little guy in the tank and he almost immediately headed straight for the front glass of the aquarium. It's kinda fun watching it eat non stop, its little mouth just keeps going and going.. nom...nom....nom...nom..nom...nom..... I can see the trail of extremely clean glass its leaving in its trail!! Algae on glass doesn't stand a change against this little snail.
Great size and appetite, I love seeing them eat away at the algae on my glass and maneuver themselves onto my plants. They are truly swift and healthy, but definitely add some calcium to your tank to maintain strong horns.
Package was well wrapped. There was very little water with the 10 snails. To my surprise, after “hibernating” for a day and a half, they were all alive. It’s only been a few days and they’ve done a great job eating the algae. I deducted one star because mine were not brightly colored like the ones in the picture.
Received a bonus snail, all are alive and very active! Having a great time will definitely be a returning customer.
First-time buyer and glad I decided to give them a try. All the plants came in excellent condition and very healthy. They were all packaged individually by type of plant and were very easy to take out and separate for planting. I was very happy with the plants. I also ordered some Sun Thorn snails (3) but they sent me 4! I was very excited because they look awesome! Though once getting them in the Tank only 1 of the 4 moved. I checked on the rest 2 days later and they were dead. As soon as I picked them up they fell out their shell. Other than that, I will buy from them again.
