Seems I have a few stomella snails to many I think , I've noticed about 8 so far , don't really want to end up with a tank full of them ,
Not sure what the plan is yet to get rid .
Options open guys .

Oi Ratvan you like critters,
You want some ?
When you go online there's loads of people trying to buy them and asking where to get them from seems to be more in USA though ,are they really that sort after.
I know they good for tank and good algae eaters but really , people are that desperate to get them they willing to pay for them .
Must admit though I've been in a lot of fish shops and can't recall ever seeing them for sale ?

Cool, they're my favourite clean up crew member, along with bristle worms. JBS Marines sells them every now and again 3x for £5.
I'd sump them to eat the detritus in there or a great species for keeping a refugium clean (well you know what I mean)
I keep putting mine in my HOB

If I give the stomella you're address it might take it a year or two to get to you lol


I'll look into the cheapest and best /safest way to send them and will get back to you about shipping some out ,
