Seller: sengalang (93) 100%, Location: Lompoc, California, Ships to: US, Item: 254259873225 10 Malaysian Trumpet snails. Free Shipping These are considered "beginner snails" and require almost no care as long as your tank is already well established with beneficial bacteria. They come directly out of my personal fish tank. I am not a professional but just a simple hobbyist and like to thin them out every once in a while. Please be aware that just like any aquatic live species, treat everything you put in your tanks as "potentially infected". Quarantine the snails before adding them to your main tank. They will be coming out of a very well planted tank running CO2.Pictures are snails from the actual tank SizeI don't package the snails until you order, I am also not picky so I just grab any that I can see. Sizes will vary between mostly small and medium. One thing I do make sure is that they are alive and well. I pick the ones who are moving around and active. I will avoid picking any small babies. For size reference, please check the picture of an actual randomly selected batch. Packing and shippingPlease allow for up to 24 hours of processing time.I will only ship M-F. If items are bought Friday night to Sunday night, processing will be started on Monday.I want to try to save both of us as much money as possible. I will be sending the snails in a small ziploc bag (with water and paper towel) inside of a bubble envelope. The snails have hard shells and it will not be an issue. They are also hardy, tough, and will be able to handle a cramped space for a few days.Please be mindful of the current weather in your area and order accordingly. Snails hiding in shells??On arrival, snails can be dormant and remain in their shells for days depending on how comfortable they are and the different water conditions than what they are used to. Be patient and give them time. They are also quick to go back into their shell for safety if they sense danger. It would also be a good idea to keep an eye out for fish who pick at them. Make sure they are given clean conditioned warm cycled water for the best welcome. Some Pro's:They readily breed and can multiply ten fold in a matter of weeks as long as they have food and the right conditions.They are extremely hardy and can do well in a number of environments. I hardly ever see empty shells.Its actually quite rare in my tank.They help keep the tank clean by eating all the dead/dying matter (detritus), as well as food that has gone in between the gravel.They will dig and sift through your gravel (the finer the better) to avoid gas build up.They are a great addition to the clean up crew, not only do they eat leftovers, but they also eat algae. The more the merrier in my opinion.They are an amazing species to keep with live plants. If you have a lot of aquatic plants, they are a must as they help to produce wastes and and further break down wastes to provide nutrients under the gravel for plant roots to uptake. Some Con's:They readily breed - I've never had the issue, but their numbers could get out of control from overfeeding. Be warned.They are absolutely not the easiest to get rid of. Make sure you've made up your mind and really want them. Once they start populating, they can be considered a pest and almost impossible to get rid of.They do take up the bio load - just like any species, they create waste. The more they multiply, the more wastes are produced.Shells can be too hard if they are for feeding your other aquatic species.They can eventually make their way into filters. I have always heard that they can clog your filter, but I clean my filters often and have never had the issue. I recommend having a pre-sponge filter to prevent them from entering your filter.The common misconception is that they eat plants. I have never seen them eat any of my healthy plants, only the ones that are dying or not doing so well.They are an invasive species and can live out of water in their shells for weeks at a time, if unwanted, dispose of them properly to prevent detrimental damage to the environment.
