Wanted: Malaysian Trumpet Snails

Anyone have a few I could buy or a seller they recommend? Shipping would be to Michigan. I'd prefer to spend as little as possible as I just bought a bunch of new plants and my wallet's feeling a little empty!
Thanks for any help!

I have a bunch of little ones if you'd like to pay for shipping costs and packing materials.

I would send them after the holiday via Priority mail small box.

So total $9.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

I can sell your 3-4 for maybe $1 + $2.50 shipping.
Unless you want priority which is $5.50.

IF you were on the other side of the boarder I'd give you about 50, just for shipping costs. The dang things breed like rabbits. I have more of them than substrate!

lol @ silverfang, are you guilty of overfeeding? ;) I find that even though these are snails they have a significantly less bioload than other snails.

Mine all hatched from eggs on plants.

They're small and there're over 100!

If they will survive First Class then you can have these little ones for the cost of First Class.

Ao's are bigger.
