i got a free ramshorn snail for free (baby)

i went to petco in janesville since my sis had to go up there and didnt see anything i could fit or i liked. so i asked her if i could have some of those pest snails to feed my puffers. she said yes and i told her theres usually lots in the plant tanks. so she goes around looking for as many snails as she can find (since the tanks'll look cleaner) so i bring them home and dang some of those were really big. when i went home i fed one to my puffers and man those shells were hard!

and once i looked more closely i saw a ramshorn snail. im thinking of putting it with my brichardi's since i dont think ill have few if not any plants in there. its like |--| right now. im pretty sure its a ramshorn though.

I'm surprised they're alive 8O ... I had 3 in my 29 gallons and one died from not having enough algae to eat, despite dropping in algae waffers.
