New light on Pest Snails.. PICS

So, I had a little too much fun photographing my to-be feeder snails My ramshorns and pond snails are in the same .5g thing. There's not enough yet to be a problem (I read a lot about breeding them in a 10g tank )
My macro setting is pretty good :) And the flash was off so I used a desk lamp and a keychain light (ghetto or what)
Here's to hoping these "pests" are looked at in a new light :) I'm so amused by them!

This one has a shot of eggs on the wood. I forget why I uploaded this one. Hm. Also, the pics looked more clear on my camera
-_- I'll upload them to photobucket in a smaller size afterbc the pond snails have a really cool foot pattern.

Aww! That's the only thing I don't like about my nerite snails, they don't stick their heads out very far >.<

Cute tho :D

They were having such a party last night! The ramshorns were so enthused about there peas and tums that they were just crawling around with their "junk" sticking out waiting for a passer by.
