    You could try emailing the snail shop, they had some small staghorns left when I asked last time, no ruby nerites though :(

    Alternatively some LFS's stock them so you could trawl round the local places.

    Where do you live?

    I tend to find Maidenhead Aquatics stock them.

    More a cautionary word, I used Gogosnails on ebay for some nirites and 4 out of 6 arrived dead the 2 that arrived alive died trhe day afterwards when I emailed them to try and get them replaced they got shitty and left me bad feedback despite them being the ones at fault.
    I'd avoid them unless you can't get any from maidenhead.

    If you want GOOD Discus, visit BIDKA and check out the Sponsors, you may be suprised by the high quality and reasonable prices.

    Right, sorry can help then. I know lots of LFS but none down that way.

    Pets @ Home sell them, they had loads when I visited at the weekend (Brentford) but after seeing their appaulling conditions and dead fish everywhere, I just walked off and refused to buy anything there.

    Porton aquatics near Salisbury had some when I went in on Sunday.

    Nerites are the horned ones right? or do you mean the big zebra type ones?
