So I'm thinking about adding snails to the baby tanks and was at the LFS the other day and they have Mystery Snails (Blue) there. Looked like a nice new shipment and all appeared to be in good health however they are in the tanks with other fish of course. Since I'm now spending about 4-6 hours working with the fish, I know its a lot! but I'm determined here...daily I'm really thinking hard about adding a snail or two per baby tank. (Tanks are 10 Gallons).
What are your recommendations about buying snails from the LFS or should I purchase them offline? Any quarantine period necessary before adding them into the tanks?
