Yea that is A MTS. Mopaniu wood is good i have two of them in my tank.They are very hard wood, Dont fungus or anything Harder then malay DW
So even with the blurry pic the description of the snail and spiral snail is enough to make it a MTS. If so, I am happy . Didn't have to pay shipping and handling to buy a bunch of em.Yea that is A MTS.

Ya the size was Small and that was 1 out of 5 pieces. Took me a while to decide which piece I wanted so I got this one. It looks big in the picture but it is a bit flat but does stick up due to a base part.I'd soak it a few hours, then take a toothbrush and gently rub off any loose wood parts especially in those blackened areas, then soak it a few more hours before sticking it in your tank. your piece has a lot of character. I got one about the same size, but it's just a big oval knot, so I don't know how to use it. I guess eventually I'll just grow some Fissidens off it once I have a larger tank. I just hate putting driftwood in my 30gal tanks and steal valuable growing space from my plant collection.
lol. When I go into my local petsmart. They have Snails already bagged up xD. It is ridiculously funny. I had gotten a couple pure black ones in a batch and was so happy with them.The snails were free and I bought a Peppered Corycat cause he was alone in the tank. That was when I saw the snails in his tank and noticed they weren't pond snails. So I asked the guy can I have that snail, he started walking away and I said AND," that one on the leaf" AND " that one on the rock". Than he started to walk faster away, I only got 3.
Don't underestimate them. I've had MTS and ramshorns come back from a long hiatus for seemingly no reason at all, some of those absences were from tear down/gravel switching, some were from medicating fish in the tank. In either case they seemed to come out of hibernation over time, some even seemed identifiable as older "grown up" snails that went MIA. It just happened with ramshorns in my 65gl, I experimented with low GH and saw a mass whitening a die off of all of my ramshorns. A few months later after getting it back up around 7dGH, two of the older big guys are back foraging around, only with white pitted shells.it doesn't seem as if any survived the tear-down and re-scaping though. Poor little guys.
