    I have too many at this point from a founder population of 3 snails. Frankly, I wish I’d had never bought them.

    Let me know how many you want and I’ll deliver them to the meeting on Saturday. Bonus points if you’re going to feed them to your fish.

    No idea. I've read that they will kill nerites if given half a chance, but I don't keep nerites so I don't have the first-hand experience.

    Personally, I wouldn't take the chance if you really like your nerites.

    I’m going to say that we’ve hit the limit of snails that I can bring in.

    If there are any extras, I’ll just donate them to the club.

    Better to decide that now then after they’re in your tank ;-)

    They will kill nerites and they will eat cherry shrimp if (it's a big if) they can catch them. I've never seen them substantially impact a population.

    Sam, if you have others you'd like to be rid of, I'll take them for my potato puffer.
