Neothauma snails

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy some shells, or live Neothauma snails?

Neothauma shells are difficult to find, and if you do find them, are generally very expensive iirc. I've never heard of anyone selling live Neothauma snails (although, that doesn't mean it never happens, just that I've never heard of it). This is what I use. The price is good and the fish can easily fit inside the shells. Amazon.com : Roland Extra Large Snail Shells, 3 DOZEN Tube : Prepared Pastry Shells : Grocery & Gourmet Food

There was a shellie seller on eBay that had an importer of shells, can't remember the name of the seller though, but he wanted $5/shell with no bulk discount

Japanese trapdoor snail shells work great as well.

I use Mexican turbo snail shells. I got nearly all of them free from various saltwater stores

Mexican turbos get decent sized, you wanna make sure the opening is 1"-1.5"
