I have been waiting to break down one of my tanks, and I'm pretty sure I have several trumpet snails that are still kicking. From my experience, you really don't need too many to get a solid population going, so I could probably help you out.

Let me know if you're still interested.

Did you ever get some snails? I could dig some out if not. I'm in central Pinellas.

I've been using them to feed my assassins along with the pond snails. Maybe I should let my population build up a bit
