I bought a new plant for Goober the other day, and while I was at the pet store, I will admit to looking for a plant that had a snail on it. Found one, but it turned out that it was easier to get another one, so I did. A little disappointed about the snail thing, but oh, well!!!
I got home, and tossed the plant into the tank, threw the bag out, and enjoyed watching Goober investigate his new plant for a while. Later, when I was going to bed, for some reason I thought to check the bag that I had thrown out in the trash, just in case. All I saw was some water and roots at the bottom, and a dead leaf about halfway up the bag. Just out of curiosity, I touched the leaf through the bag, and it turned out to be an itty bitty snail!!!!!!!
I quickly took him out of the bag (he'd been out of water for a while at this point) and tossed him into the tank.
He's a cute little guy...when I can find him! Turns out he's the exact same colour and size as my gravel! GAH! Unless he's on the walls or a decoration, it takes forever to find him!
Does anyone have any idea how long it takes for snails to grow? I'm hoping he gets bigger quickly so it'll be easier to find him.
