Pond snail. See if they'll give you one for free. I wouldn't spend a penny on one. If not, I'm sure there are plenty of fish owners near you who'd be happy to give you some. If you're near me ill give you a bag full.

I wouldn't get pond snails, they will reproduce like crazy, and your tank will have hundreds of them. Why do you want them to reproduce?

Man could I ever give you snails!! I have an infestation in my shrimp tank. I finally got 6 assassin snails but they can't keep up. Unfortunately assassins are really hard to get around here
