There is a guy in Woodridge that sells them on craigslist. I've bought from him several times, nice guy to deal with.

IIRC he wants like a buck a snail, and I don't want to pay 50 bucks for what many consider a plague :p

I'm pretty sure he only wants a couple bucks per dozen. He had mystery/apple snails for $1/per. You may want to check again.

interesting fact

Buttload: “A ‘butt‘ is a traditional unit of volume used for wines and other alcoholic beverages. A butt is generally defined to be two hogsheads, but the size of hogsheads varies according to the contents. In the United States a hogshead is typically 63 gallons and a butt is 126 gallons.”
126 gallons worth of MTS sure is a lot :icon_lol:

Thanks, appreciated. I think I sourced these though. No need to tear your tank up!

Thanks much, but I think I am good. Don't need people tearing up display tanks!

Is there a Petsmart nearby? They usually have a ton on the glass... some stores will let people have them if you ask. My store didn't since people asked for them without knowing that they would never be able to get rid of them and came back and complained.

Hey Larcat haven't seen you around for a while,
I can probably bring you a dozen or more (sorry not a buttload) if you're going to be at the GCCA swap in a couple of weeks. As I'm sure you know within a few months that dozen will become a buttload.
PM me a few days before to remind me if you want them.

Thanks much for the offer! I think I have it worked out.

We haven't been going to the swaps because we've pretty much got all the plants we can handle : /

I'm gunna post up some tank pics I think!
