Re: Blue snails and beard algae

Just a quick note to say that the snail that I purchased
was not a blue snail as I had been led to believe. It was
one similar to the ampullaria pictured on page 901 of Baensch
volume 1. However, its shell is entirely dark brown and not
alternately striped light and dark as depicted in the book.
I bought a second and the beard algae is slowly disappearing
I did catch a glimpse of a "blue" snail, and it looks more
like a ramshorn, only with a light grayish blue translucent
shell. Very active and prolific according to the pet shop
