Decided to keep my guy. Gave him some cucumber, he isn't touching my plants at all so he can stay! (he heard me talking about taking him back lol).
Totally wanna start breeding these guys too, but it seems luck of the draw to get a male and female pair :/
Snail power!!

my snail is hiding x3 i have tried lettuce with him, and he seems to go for it, i want to dry some other veggies, buuuut i only have frozen right now. yay for keeping yours! i cant wait for my big tank to cycle (it feels like its taking forever) so i can put Darroh in there and get more snails. oh and all the other things i want i guess lol. would frozen veggies (thawed obviously) be okay to give to Darroh?

As far as I know there's no harm in thawed veggies.
I'm excited to get more too! Their faces remind me of elephants more than rabbits! They look like they have fat little trunks.
Have you noticed what theyre like underneath? Kinda creepy, my guy has what looks like a hole where the shell rubs on him!

I pick my guy and put him on his food and he comes out of his shell quickly. Of course I'm mostly paranoid about my plants since they're finally growing.
I've been thinking about the name rabbit snail too. They reproduce slowly, unlike rabbits, and they don't move fast like rabbits. My only theory is the way they move almost makes them look like they're hopping. :p

i pick Darroh up and move him around a lot too. glad i'm not the only one! I dont have live plants though. That may change eventually but...for now i'm being lame x3 it looked like he "uprooted" one of my fake plants though lol

lol they DO look like they're hopping.

My guy loves burying his face in the sand, just his shell sticking out.
Consider switching to sand, I hear they climb up glass and fall and break their shells on gravel. It doesn't hurt them and the shell grows back, just ugly :D I've only seen my guy on the glass once so far.

oh man, Darroh climbs allll over the glass. also, he likes to suck on gravel xD the big tank has sand, so he'll love it in there. i just am still experimenting with all these things. he hasn't really ever like, fallen, but he slides down a lot.

They seem to have real personalities, for snails at least!
Oh man, if you're like me and like a smooth sand bottom, you will probably be annoyed. I have little snail tracks all over my aquarium sand :p
