Rated 5 out of 5 by YinYang Are great once they leave the store
They don't look healthy in the store, but once you get them and night falls they come out. They are not bothered by the fish and are quite fast (for a snail).
These guys are cool, don't need much attention, and surprised my black moor. He was thinking "what? How is that rock moving? Whoaa..."
The fish have not bothered them, they have not bothered the fish. Very peaceful and lively.
A wonderful addition to my goldfish tank.
Choose a snail that is stuck to the glass or rocks in the store, not one all closed up. This is a sign of good health.
Choose a snail without any cracks in the shell, snails with cracks are likely going to be unhealthy and have a shorter life.
If it smells bad, it's sick. Smell your snail (it sounds weird but worth it to get a healthy snail)
Acclimate the snail before introducing it to the tank.
Do not add store water to your tank. That's nasty stuff.
Wait until night to observe your snail's activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaitKat Love My Snails!
I have a 10 gallon with 6 neon tetras, 1 cardinal tetra (sad story behind him), 5 glow tetras and 2 apple snails. Out of everything in my tank the snails are the most active organisms in my tank. If I clean the tank out, put the in a sperate cup to hold them or put them back and they have hidden in their shells, it takes less than a minute after setting them down before they start moving again. I keep telling everyone I should just make my tank a snail tank with how active my two are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abbie3024 Great addition to tank
I love these snails, I got one in every color. They grow very quickly, we started off with ones the size of my thumb nail, and within a few weeks they tripled in size. Pretty cool. They also clean the tank very well. Here's the catch: they WILL reproduce, even if you just have a single snail. This is not a big deal (as some other reviewers have complained), you simply must be smart enough to remove the eggs before they hatch, so just check your tank hood daily for a lump of eggs, and remove them by scraping them off. I freeze them before I dispose of them. So, other than that, awesome addition to any tank environment.
