Your nerite snail is really cool/cute !
I want to eat him cause he looks like caramel. D:
JK
But maybe you have a magical snail that you pick caramel candy off his shell and he grows a new one. Let me know if this is true, okay?

I know, right? I ended up being forced to put him in his own 1 gallon. Sir Lefty wouldn't stop eating the algae wafers, and it just wasn't going to work to cup the snail every time I fed him, since they are supposed to be fed at least once a day. Also, since they're slow eaters, I couldn't just cup Sir Lefty either. POO.

I have to put my new snail in his own tank too because my betta kept eating his food, even though I tried everything!
They aren't that happy together so i'm setting up a place for Him.

All he has right now is a 1 gallon tank on a heating pad, with two river stones in it. I want can't wait till I can get some more fake plants.

I got it at Atlas Pet Supply, which is a small chain. I don't know if it has any locations outside of Minnesota. I just know I've seen at least two in my state.
