    Beautiful and healthy

    They arrived nicely packaged and healthy. They really are beautiful snails. All five were moving and eating within hours of following the directions that came with them. Very happy with them and will be ordering more.

    They were moving around same day I put them in the tank. I'm so happy with them I just ordered another 5 in different colors. They have done a great job at keeping my turtle tank clean!

    Love these snails. They were moving about within minutes. They are fairly large also. I only gave four stars because one was dead.

    Perfectly Purple
    Posted by Momo on 21 Jul 2022

    When I saw these online I wasn't sure they were real. LFS said they hadn't seen them on the market in years. Turns out he's full of it, I got 5 of these princely purples and I love them!! All were grape-sized and out of their shells within an hour of being in their tanks. They get along swimmingly with my community tanks and I'm hoping to get some eggs/babies so I can show snooty LFS what's up. I was surprised at how purple they really are once they've had a few days to really get acclimated and get their tums full of food, but each one is unique enough in color and pattern to tell from the others.

    Excellent Snails!!

    I’d bought snails from pet smart, which died within 2 days. I ordered these and received them promptly. 1 week later and all snails are alive and moving around a lot and my tank is looking great!

    These snails are very interesting to watch. They busily buzz around my 75 gallon planted tank. Make sure you have closed off escape routes out of your tank; l had two crawl out and end up on the floor. They make hard egg cases they deposit just above the water line. They are breeding like crazy. They have amazing sense of smell and hone it on food items readily. Enjoyable to watch. Would recommend to anyone with 20+ gallon tank.
