HI, everybody,

 

I am very keen to buy different types of freshwater snails. The only ones I can find are common golden mystery (apple) snails and red & brown ram snails. I have a few giant apple snail (light footed and dark footed).

Can you recommend any specific website or online store where I can buy a variety? I am on lookout at Gumtree.

Best regards,

There are a lot of Australia members so hopefully someone will reply.  I am UK based so am not aware of whether you can import them or availability etc? They do sell them on ebay over here but I couldn't see any on Australia ebay. There is a section on this site for livestock for sale but at a quick glance I didn't see any snails.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Thanks a lot for your reply, Simon.

We have very strict quarantine laws in Australia, so import any livestock is basically impossible.  I hoped that maybe some Aussie breeders will respond. Cheers.

I hope someone will respond.

Have you tried aquarium shops as even if they don't stock them they may have a contact or customer they know has snails etc. If you don't want to go to lots of shops you could just call them??

I did a quick search and came up with the below as well, not sure whether they are any good for you??

Thank you, Simon, for the information you found. I have a friend who does this and he has contacts in Australia. I'll try to find out everything from him and write if there is any information.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
