July 21st - Mystery Snail

He's not a mystery, that's just what they're called. Look it up. :) (They're also called apple snails.)

I just got this little guy today, to help clear the tank of algae. Unfortunately, it has become a problem. :(

The last time I had one of these, he grew to darn near fist size! This one is about 1 1/2 inches in length, so far. My daughter picked out a yellow one, but they also come in black. Yellow is easier to see against the black background of the tank.

Yes, I know we're back to my fish tank, I just didn't do anything of interest today, so this is what you all get. Sorry. :)

Wow, he's very cool. And those plants look so weird. They look like they are made of silk or fabric of some sort! The snail looks wonderful. Wish we could see some more of his shell, cos he looks more sluggy like this but his little tentacles are great. Good job.

That is one of the coolest snails I have ever seen. He looks like he could hover slightly over the surface and speed from place to place! Great picture of him too!

I think the thing I notice the most is not the ssnail but the silk flowers - in a fish tank!

Add me to those who immediately saw silk flowers..... and thought the snail was a joke you were playing on us! :) Very cool, actually.
