    nice, but your porcupine/staghorns are soooo expensive Richard. Unless theyre ginormous I guess.

    Good, i dont want them to breed! Are the white eggs like the ones in jelly? Very small? I'm not bothered about them, you cant see them much anyway.

    not like any other snails eggs really.. layed individually, and nigh on impossible to remove. They can be a bit of a nightmare as they can lay prolifically.... however, its a small price to pay for such a wonderful creature.

    Wow.... I love AE, I really do... But they are some expensive snails... they sell red zebra snails at pets at home for £2.50!

    Hi Guys

    The snails vary in size from 0.8cm (porcupine) to larger nerites which are about 1.5cm (some are smaller).

    With regards to price, that's the best I can do at the moment but am doing my best to source cheaper one's.

    Hi, i've actually sent you a message through your site but will the Ruby Nerites really survive in a tank with Loaches? 3 5 inch Clowns to be specific.
    I could really do with some prolific algae eaters but I'm not paying 2.99 each for Loach food! :lol:

    Unlikely any snails will survive with clowns, of any size.

    That's what I would have though. The description of the Ruby Nerite on AE suggests otherwise.

    From another website that sells them:

    Guess it depends on the loaches ;)

    Yes, my local P@H does to. Unfortunately, they're all upside down and there's no one at home..... :rolleyes: :lol: Nice if you like collecting shells though.
