is there any reason why my nerite should have a 1mm diameter hole on the tip of his/her end cone? i havent put any IALs or anything to soften the water. my water is hard enough to curl CT fins within 2 week of purchasing them. i do have some coral pieces i can put in the QT tank if needed. just how long can 1 nerite snail live comfy in a unfiltered 1g heated tank before any sort of WC? i can put a algea wafer and some blanched zuchini in while im at it.

i dont have a pic of it atm but its where the pointiest part would be ie the apex. i think the area around there may be a slightly darker brown but its not alarming me. his shell has no chips in it aside from that tiny hole and ive never had any snail preying fish/snails.

Not sure on the shipping cost, it would probably depend on where you're sending it, but one lady said it was like $3.85, but who knows if that is true, and it could have been an old post. They really don't weight much so it can't be too bad!

I read about the water in a little baggy thing too, and it definitely works for some people. Others had issues with the water getting too much ammonia in it because their bioload is so high, and others had issues with broken shells. Some did the paper towel thing in a plastic baggy instead of a container, and had some broken shells, others had no issue. There seems to be a ton of ways to ship em, I personally just like the wet paper towel in a container best. Shipping would probably be cheaper if you did the baggy though, cause you could probably get it in an envelope, but I would be worried something heavy might squish em

I should also mention that a lot of snails kinda hibernate I guess when being shipped and can take a few days to come around once they're in the tank. I think someone even said like 5 days, while others will bounce back right away.

I am seriously considering getting a Kritter Keeper and breeding red ramshorn snails. Someone stop me, as I have very little room for anything procreating in our house...

Idk if I can right now. I am however starting a little planted nano setup with a glass shrimp. I would but I have no room for another tank if I'd need one, and my dad hates the words "breeding" and "fish" in the same sentence...
