    Anyone know anything about Apple snails?

    I have 4 apple snails I recently acquired (about 2 weeks ago). Tiny babies when I got them but growing quickly.

    Wild type? What species? Anyone know what exactly they are?

    I've had them for quite a while, but not anymore.
    I actually regret getting rid of them now, especially since they are illegal here now.

    What do you want to know about them?

    Illegal as a whole????

    I'm hoping these ones will reach adulthood and I might get a few babies out of them but who knows.

    I had two apple snails for awhile the size of golf balls and gave them away. They cruised around the tank bothering all bottom feeders.

    Muvin is from Sweden! As far as I know they are perfectly legal here, you are good :)

    Anyone know if these are diffusa or cana?
    It's not the end of the world if they are cana but it does mean I need to adjust my tank situation. )

    Sorry they are very tame and it's hard to photograph because they try to crawl out and rasp on my hands instead of tucking up inside.
