Any snails for sale?

So as some know I dirted my breeding tank, and my son's pond snail (Gary) got lost in the clean up.

So now I want to get him two prettier snails to replace gary, also any recomendations and info on them would be greatly appreciated since i've never kept snails before.

She's not my one that can get huge huge, she is about full grown now, my Florida apple snail can get to the size of a baseball.

MTS are options and will stir your soil. Japanese trapdoor snails you would consider huge too.

What size tank are these for?

Nerites have some cool patterns

there are ramshorn snails

I don't know much about rabbit snails

Fish den has Olive Nerites, and several other LFS carry various other types of nerite snails. My personal favorite is the tracked nerite.
