Leopard Ramshorn Snails

20 leopard ramshorn snails for a flat fee of $12.50, priority shipping included and a DOA guarantee.

The yellow thing in the picture is a piece of Iams cat food for size comparison; as you can see, these snails are quite small

A better pic showing their leopard markings; not all of them have very strong markings though

Prolific little buggers so 20 snails will start a good colony. Trust me. My 20 turned into 300. Also good if you have a puffer fish.

Will live in unheated tanks; some of these snails are in a tank that is about 68 F

Is the calcium powder like, uhm, montmorillonite mineral clay?

This:
Pond Fish & Koi Health & Nutrition: Microbe-Lift CMC Calcium Montmorillonite Mineral Clay

If so, I do have some of this for my koi but I had no idea it could be used for snails.

If not, oooh, share your secret. :)
