Are they not being bred for sale at all? I was surprised to find healthy looking ones at the local Petsmart for $2.49 each--which seems unlikely if they were wild-collected & transported. Bought mine there in desperation to deal with my new tank algae outbreak, and they've thrived.
Now that they've eaten through the algae though, I"m having trouble getting them to eat anything else. Algae wafers, cucumber slices, lettuce etc are ignored and the snails swarm them instead. They continue to look for algae on the glass & plant leaves. Short of glueing lettuce leaves to the glass, any suggestions?
