went to a creek today

tried catching some fish with some nets but they were 2 fast. but i brought some plants home that i thought looks kind of aquatic. in the roots i found several snails/clams.

the clams are just clams but the snails are pond snails, but their really col colors. like 2 of them are like a pearl color and ones like striped. their really cool!

and i found like 3-4 ramshorn snails but whenni got home i only could find one.

I highly suggest dipping those plants in a alum solution or potassium permanganate
to remove unwanted hitchhikers. Too many bad things can be brought home from the wilds, on/in plants, clams, snails and fish ect.
Be very careful.

It can be, but I would opt for a 10-15 G instead.
