Looking for ramshorns

Does anybody have some ramshorn snails they are looking to get rid of? Perferably with a colored shell (not olive or black)...
I dont want alot just a few for my snail tank.

I have lots of them. I don't think I have any black or olive but I have so many it's hard to tell. How many are you looking for and how big? some are about the size of a pencil eraser.

I am thinking about 6 or so. Dont think I would need more then that since they multiply pretty readily. As for size- big enough that you can see them? I have had people send me snails so tiny I wasnt sure if it was a snail or not

yes, I have plenty that are easy to see. Let me pick some out tonight after work to make sure you don't get olive or black and I will let you know when I am ready to ship. The shipping cost will be $6 via USPS flat rate priority shipping.

Her pinks are beautiful, I thought blue was going to be my favorite but the Pinks absolutely blew them away. Helps that my favorite color is pink i guess.

Thanks! I hope they're doing well for you!

It really is hard to photograph just how pink the pinks are. They are really pearly pink from itty bitty things. The blues are nice, but not really a noticeable blue until they're at least pea-size, and they get more distinctly blue as they grow. It takes plant lights to really make them stand out, light or natural river-rock colored gravel makes you take notice of the blue as well. Adult blues are a pretty blue snail, but the pinks just don't look real - they look like a child's fantasy snail.

I am afraid I can not locate anything besides the two blue one's, atleast I think they are blue. The largest ones are either olive or black and the smaller one's haven't really taken on any color.
