wtb: your pest ramshorn snail - lots of 'em

i'm looking to buy about 50-100 of your pest ramshorn snails.
don't care about color obviously... just need more to keep up with feeding my puffers.

pm me to discuss price please.

i'm in zipcode 11362 and would prefer local but shipping is welcome.

thanks!

Dude If I knew you needed some I wouldn't have nuked them.
The guy who was supposed to pick it up flaked and they have been sitting in my countertop for a few weeks already.

where out in long island did you grab the puffers? I have a pretty good LFS by me called Tropical showcase -- they might have some pest snails.. if you didnt already try there lol.

What other LFS on LI did you try? I've been meaning to find some more just out of curiosity..

I see. I've got a DP as well but I don't feed him snails (think he's a bit too small). Just making sure I wasn't depriving him of a goodie
