    Help identify my baby snail.

    Bought some plants earlier. Got them in the tank and noticed this little snail wandering around the leaves. Probably an easy identification but I'm new to tropical fish and wasn't sure. Thanks in advance.

    Snail infestation

    A few months ago, I bought a nerite snail that apparently had some bladder snails eggs on its shell. My tank has hundreds of them now. I've since decided to shut down this tank. But question - I have a rubber lip pleco in this tank, is it possible he will carry any eggs over to the new tank...

    Snail diet?

    I'm planning on getting a zebra nerite snail, and was doing research about what they eat. Most sources recommended algae wafers but I learned that those aren't good to have around bettas. I was wondering what other alternatives there were that both my betta and snail could eat? Or if it's better...

    Snail ID

    I have recently gotten some new plants in my 75 gal tank. I have noticed some snails which I am assuming hitchhiked in. I have seen some threads with some varying views. Should I be worried?

    Hey all, I have had some blue mystery snails that I ordered online about 2 weeks ago, they came in last week. They are awesome and I love seeing them out of their shells.
