How much did you pay for your nerite snail?

I was thinking about getting a few for my betta tank and my angelfish tank so I looked online to get an idea and they're like $40.00 plus shipping for four. I'm quite a ways from a fish store so I can't just go look. So is that price about right if you were to get them from a pet store?

I bought a mystery snail for $1.50. It only lived for a week. It was a mess to clean up.

Dead snails like melt out of their shells. They liquify. They stink.

I paid about 3$ for my nerite at petsmart. That was 2 and half years ago. She's still alive somehow.

Isn't that a lovely image... It wouldn't really be a problem in my betta tank because if that happened its small enough I could completly break it down to clean everything but it makes me wary to put in my angel tank because of its size, although because it's so much bigger it would dilute it down, hmmm... Anyways sounds like they'd be a lot more affordable in a store instead of online.

Petsmart has been carrying the plain black and olive nerites for about $2 lately. Our LFS just started carrying some horned and sun nerites for 2.99.

Before that all started I got a few on ebay, much cheaper than $40 plus shipping ~ I think I paid about 15.00 for three including shipping. Can you try ebay if you aren't convenient to any pet stores?
