I'm the picture taker, so hubby fed the fishys. He said they'd glup his whole hand. Said it felt like sandpaper wrapping around his hand.

That's a neat video. I was thinking they'd be a pretty big fish. Do they get big?

Thats what I thought too.
I've fed some piggy/large koi/goldies. But nothing compares to those tarpon. Mouths as big as my dog's head O.O

They can get about 4", so not too big. A really cool thing about them is that they're a living fossil :D

But they're unusual snails because they're living, moving moss ball snails!

Mossball on the move


I want to add something else to the 20G but no idea what. It has 4 females, 2 adult trapdoors, 2 babies and 1 mystery snail.
