I'm doing this on my phone so I just saw you lava snail pics. I'll have to learn more about them. Your snail looks awesome. Is it African? I'd love to have an African tank someday.

Not sure if it is African? Now I'll have to go and read! It likes the same temp and ph as my shrimp So he fit's in there perfectly, the lava is actually a member of the nerite family and love's the algae so he's handy

No confusion. I like biotypes so now I want an Asian tank for a lava snail, lol. Love that it is a good algae eater.

I only have a South American tank now, so mystery snails are a good fit there.
