They certainly look different. I've never met a wild diffusa, so I'm not sure if they act different. Part of the criteria for being considered domesticated is dependence on humans - I'd say aquarium apple snails are pretty dependent on their owners.

now this is debatable. Some people claim diffusas will not munch on plants. I claim they will destroy plants in droves.

My snails have only eaten the brown leaves my plants. Save me a little trouble pruning. I am sure they are like fish. Some like one food more then others. They never touch my Java ferns or anubias. Could be they only like certain types of plants.

From what I have read they are in the proccess. I would say a few years to ten. Cats are domestocated and do not depend on humans. I have read a feral colony of Bettas in Florida.

Discus are very warm water so is that why you chose java fern?

Does apple snail look like trapdoor snails without the operculum?
I got some from my friend because he don't have anymore space.They are currently in a 5 gallon tank with 50% water changes everyday.He said they are apple snails but to me they look like trapdoor snails.
The snails have some 'plate' thingy covering the opening and next to their shells when they are moving.
