A day in the life of my Apple Snail

I found my snail on top of the filter, where I was able to take the lid off and get some crisp close-ups of him. In this series he goes into the water, and you can see his reflection in some of the photos. I tried to keep these small enough so that they load pretty fast.

Anyone else have good snail photos?

I know...its the only part I truly dread LOL

I think the snails will be hubbys responsibility When we had a snail infestation in my FW tank, he took over the job of smooshing them for the angelfish till I got loaches LOL

Oh man my husband LOVES this snail. That snail is the reason why we had to get another fish tank altogether to start a saltwater tank. I agree that garden snails and slugs are G-R-O-S-S, but saltwater ones can be so pretty! Look at this book cover...
