I have leopards running around everywhere in my 5.5. Sadly, no reds though.

Live plants, nope. They eat the dead or dying ones though.

Funny thing is, I had one red snail (adult) that I pulled from a tank and put it as the only snail into another tank. However, all the snails that sprung form this one snail are leopard snails. Can ramshorns retain sperm? I know that they can reproduce through parthogenesis, but that would mean then that all the snails should be red, not leopards.
