Yellow antenna / White spotted snail care

1. Anyone have experience with these? They eat plants?

2. Can Sulawesi snails be kept together or do they interbreed?

3. Where do I locate these and how much should i roughly expect to pay?

thank you!

Are you referring to Tylomelania snails? Google Tylomelania snail care, there's some good info on them. I bought 6 for $40 on ebay but the seller decided to go to hawaii after listing the auction then mailed them to me on the 3rd of july which preceded a holiday (no shipping) then a weekend (no shipping on sunday) and I left Sunday for a week of vacation, despite my 3 messages reminding him I would be gone for a week and not to ship them. And if you're wondering, only 1 out of 7 snails can survive 8 days in a plastic bag half filled with water and the rotting corpses of it's kin. ...but only for about 8 hours after being placed back tank water. Awesome snails though, I'll try them again some day. I believe most of the subspecies do NOT interbreed, but a couple of them may. They're still pretty new to the trade. Saw some on aquabid.com as well.
