Snails for sale or trade

I was slightly overrun.



I'll consider just about any offer at this point.

I've got the same problem!! Got about 30 cupped waiting to be shipped out right now.

I'd try posting them on AB -- if they are cheap enough someone will end up buying them! Thats how I got mine actually

I'm not finding any listings for pond snails. I've decided to keep most (if not all) of the ramshorns

Haha I've got them in my cup too! Lol
I love my snails, just hate all the babies I get from them!
I wish you could get some loaches on loan! But I'll probably end up buying a couple assassins when I go back down to Columbus in a few weeks.

I love the ramshorns, the Pond snails are just too prolific for us to keep up with. I guess they recently had a little snail Bacchanalian, all of the decor was covered in eggs! And 1 of those was a ram clutch. They were even trying to mate with my poor rams! I think my fiancÚ is going to squish any new ponds after this. And in addition to the over 55 ponders we pulled, we have a horde of Malaysian trumpets, but, but they're easier to ignore in the substrate.

Your loach comment gave us an idea though. Mike's dad keeps a yoyo and a dojo or two, he might ask if he wants them.

Ooh! I have only ever seen like 5 pond snails total in all my tanks combined. It's the ramshorns that are turning out to be those kind of breeders.
I'm glad you might possibly be able to get a loach! That'll definitely help the problem.

I like snails. It was really cute at first. Until the ramshorns got out of control. I had to get some assassin snails to help control the population. I was pulling out 30-40 every day!
