Assassins!!

Here are my new tank inhabitants. However the word must've gone out that they were coming as I can't see any snails in the tank this morning. Doh!

Lol the vendor said it can take 72 hours but my other two were out within 30 mins and off exploring. I think is so cool how big they are and the pointy antenna thing (excuse my ignorance of snail anatomy). I didnt think I'd like snails but these are great
