My first comment is the seller is new to EBAY with no positive comments. Second in looking at their other acutions I have to wonder what this person's main focus is. As you know many people deal exclusivly in certin types of goods but this seller is selling everything from snails to telescopes to old time magazines.

True but they never go into any real details. Are they guarinteed to arive alive but if they die during acclomation will they honor with more snails or will they honor with a refund?

Personally I have problems dealing off ebay for live things. Dry goods are one thing but living creatures is another expecially from someone who has no known experence in shipping them. If the seller had a good feedback score and had shown by his previous acutions that he had been dealing with snails before I would be more inclinded to purchase.

I would also worry about this part:

nassairius type algae eating snails
I'd be concerned about getting Whelk snails as well as what's being offered.

Cheers

Another point is while nassarius snails will eat some algae, they primarily stay in the sandbed searching for detritus. They eat fish droppings, uneaten food, ect... You can drop some food in the tank and you'll see them pop up out of the sandbed all over the place. I wouldn't recommend buying them this source. JMHO.

Whelk snails are a predatory species (carnivores) that will attack other crustaceans and gastropods.

I e-mailed the seller of the snails and he said that it is a new account but he has been selling reef stuff for about 8 years. he had a saltwater fish and reef store that was destroyed by a hurricane. I don't think he was lying either he was going into great detail.
