Question Vanishing Snail. 0.o

Ok I was doing a water change with Herbs tank who Is got me worried for possible ick or something. But In other news as I was siphining around the sand with my turkey baster I sucked up what I thought was a baby snail >_> I looked at it up close and there it was in my baster witch couldn't be more then a day or two old. I put it back into my tank next to some Kyoto and continued cleaning the tank. I glanced down when I was finished and as quickley I found it, it dissapeared. o.o I got all my plants in those tubes that they have on shelves all saying snail free but obviousley this guy got in to one somehow. But where did he go...

Live, Laugh, and Love.

Small snails are GREAT at hiding... warning, by this time next week you'll have half a dozen.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

Oh no! Don't scare Pete like that! But it is possible... Hopefully you won't have a ton of them by the next week.

I have gotten snails off of those plants in a tube too. I have found 3 small ones in my 55 gallon.

Kinda have to laugh. I was looking at my tank and I seen one on the glass and usually I take them out but I decided not to since I am starting to get an algea problem. As soon as I said oh I'll just leave him there, my Large Angle Fish came by and ate him.
