LOL a grandsnail! I like that. Anyway these little guys reproduce really rapidly. I have some that are almost an inch in diameter but they were reproducingn long before they got to that size! I love these little guys and have a nice population going in my betta tank. I keep finding eggs and everytime I do a gravel vac I uncover lots of little guys from the gravel. They reproduce according to the amount of waste/food in your tank. ie dirty tank=lots of snails; clean tank=not so many snails! They dont seem to take over my tank like the physa snails, and they seem to be much hardier too.

Sadly, my grandsnail is no longer with us. It had at LEAST a dozen grandchildren.

That snail in the photo is NOT a Ramshorn Snail.

It is a Golden Ramshorn Snail which is actually an Apple Snail.(I had Planorbis Planorbis)

Thank you, I bought it as a Ramshorn snail, I looked it up on the internet and it is indeed a Rams horn sail with its narrow shell, NOT wide like the apple snail, But somewhere, on here I was told it is NOT a ramshorn snail, but a applesnail (something) I dunno i need help in identifying it :( . But thanks for the comment I indeed lubbb my snail Gary, He si so funny he will get up on top of my fake plant and sit on the top leaf and how he does it I DONT KNOW LOL. He is so big, he stills somehow balances himself on it Ive tried to get pics, But by the time I get back in there, He is done down.
