I've never heard that about snails and have hand many shipped across state lines ... weird.

That sounds ideal! :) those mystery snails are awfully cute with their wavy antennae. Apparently they are also escape artists so if your tank is 'topless' you'll have to watch out for snailcide

Neat site

I found this really neat site this morning while researching snails for my upcoming purchse. Thought it might be helpful to others... :)

Is this true? And if so, is there any way to get one, or should I settle for a mystery snail?
