Places that sell snails?

I'm trying to find specifically ramshorns. Anywhere have them? I true tropic isle but they didn't.

maybe uncle neds?

my new assassin snails have plowed through %99 of my mts already. They're eating pellets too but I'd like to keep their diet varried.

not sure if you have these chainstores but go to petsmart/petco...they always have bajillions (due to crappy suppliers) and usually give them away...if not...look in the swap and shops here...Im sure someone will give them away for the cost of shipping

I can give you all the ramshorns you want. You have to drive out to Maynard, though.

Hey, I may take you up on that offer, even if it wasn't extended to me
I have a couple of loaches that would be very happy...
I do ocasionally swing by Petsmart and they let me pick some snails out of their pant tank...

Skipton's had a whole bunch a while ago. But I don't remember seeing them recently. I'm trying to get my pond snail culture going myself.

Thanks! If I swing out that way I'll drop you a pm.

The search continues. I was going to avoid petsmart/petco as I wanted to avoid diseases.
Bu these guys eat faster and more than I imagined lol

The offer for snails is open to anyone that wants to swing by my way. I don't mind them so much--they do a good job on detritus and uneaten food. My tanks are all super healthy, too!

If you want them they are breeding in my wet/dry drip plate. I can prolly get you a nice little bunch of eggs and some adults in a bag for shipping cost only. I have no shortage. 5.00 bucks gets ya priority shipping.
