I love watching my ramshorns chug across the tank - I often wonder if I could paint little racing numbers and flames on their shells...

I've picked up bladder, ramshorn, and trumpet snails all by chance in the various plants I've bought from people here. The bladders drive me up the wall, reproducing like gremlins in a pool. The trumpet snails have worked out nicely, stirring up the substrate and keeping a low profile. I love my ramshorns to death. Watching them float upside down on the surface of the water is fun to watch, and when the red ones hit the light just right they glow neon pink. My 20 gal shrimp tank is now officially the shrimp and snail tank.

I only recently received some ramshorns and I LOVE them. They cleaned some nasty algae off some anubias that I couldn't seem to clean off any other way....and they did it in only a few hours.
