Most of you have seen me around the forum but some of you newer members may not have. I have been testing and planning this little endeavor for the last few months now, getting it perfect for you and ensuring the best value possible! May I present - Flint's Designer Snails!
Through extensive research and testing, I have found the perfect way to bring you Designer Snails. The paint is non-toxic, safe for your snail and your aquarium! This isn't liked those painted hermit crabs, dyed and tattooed fish. The process used for Flint's Designer Snails is completely safe to the animal and pain-free. The animal is not harmed in any way with it's fancy new paint job!
These snails come in a variety of designs, including but not limited to the following -
+ Polka Dots
+ Crowns (princess and king)
*with the following options available
-any combination of the three
Want a design you don't see? Feel free to ask about our custom snails! We can even do initials on most of our regular snail patterns! (Ex. Pink with white polka dots and black letter "S" for Susie!)
