Where does evereybody get snails?!?!?!

Hello people, Saphira here.
WHERE do you all get your snails? I have seen some mystery snails at petsmart, but that's it. where do you guys find your ramshorn/apple snails? do you buy them, or are they just hanging out on the plants from the pet stores? I want to get some locally for free/cheap/on plants to put with my bettas or in my tropical community.

Thank you, ~Saphira

I get mystery snails at petsmart, I've found nerites at petco, never seen ramshorns or apple but those stores will usually give you pond snails because they're seen as pests.

Small snails when buying plants. Grrrrr I hate them but I now can't waste alll my money trying to get rid of them.

I got my assassins free from a different tropical fish site :)

from what i have been told, mystery and apple snails are one and the same! if there is a difference in them, please tell me. If you get a mystery, than expect it to grow about the size of a baseball or softball, depending on tempreture. They get BIG in warmer water, mine are bigger than a golf ball and were sold as mystery/apple snails at a local store.

The family run Lfs has a a lot of different snails, everything but Mts, pond, and assassin.
But I got all mine from aquabid. You can generally get a bunch of them for like 3 bucks
