Gary

Can you guess what he is? Yup, he's a snail. A gold mystery snail that I bought at Walmart. He seems very healthy for a Walmart animal, and I'm pleased. He is in a 3.5 gallon temporarily with my ACF. He was the largest snail in Walmart, so there's no way the frog can eat him. The frog so far has ignored Gary. I'm cycling a ten gallon right now for the frog and snail to eventually go into. I got the snail because I could not keep up with algae, but then a space became available in my room for an aquarium, and it's out of the sun now. Algae should not be a problem anymore, but I had fallen in love with the idea of a snail, so now I have Gary. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

Thanks. I'm glad to have him. At the store he came off the wall easily, but then he stayed closed for a long time, and I began to worry. Then after I had finished acclimating him, he had just begun to peek back out. I tried to get him in the net, and gently deposit him in the tank, but he was sticking to the back as if saying, "No!! I'm happy here thank you very much!". After some gentle pushing with the net he finally went back in his shell and I was able to put him in the tank. He's fine, and wasn't hurt in the experience.

I bought a gold and a blue MS today and I had the same experience. And one happened to be named Gary :P Must be popular.

Lol. I love my little Gary. I just remembered that when I was a little girl, I wanted a pet snail, and I was gonna name it Gary, just like Spongebob. Lol, now I finally fulfilled that.
