Malaysian Trumpet Snails for free

Hi!

Hope I can be forgiven for writing in English.

My aquarium was getting a little overcrowded with Malaysian Trumpet snails and I'm loathe to simply kill them, and because I have cherry shrimp in my aquarium I didn't want to get something that eats snails like a stone loach as it would eat the shrimp as well.

so wondered if anyone is interested in some Malaysian trumpet snails for free? I live in Visby so can collect or I can of course post (would appreciate advice of the best way to post snails safely).

Here's a pic of them in their temporary home:

Between the various sizes I probably have 50 or so snails.

Thanks in advance!

Paul.

It´s OK!

Regarding mailing, one option that is proven good is to ship them in a snuff container. (General/Kronan and so on). Choose one in plastic.

Hmm not sure I want to teach the little fellas bad habits ;) I was thinking more in terms of do they need shipping with water? sealed air etc.? :)

Thanks for the reply :)

No need for water. Moistured bit of paper is good enough. The air inside the container will last a long time.

Hi H, sounds good, I'm going to our summerhouse in Högsby tomorrow for 10 days but when I return I'll PM you and we can sort something out, maybe you can let me know what plants you have? It's not necessary to offer something in trade but if you have spares then I can always use them!

Hi, funnily enough I don't have any Malaysians anymore, I solved my problem by buying assassin snails (Clea helena) which had a wonderful time chomping through all my Malaysians, and looked awesome whilst doing it! I have reached a level of very healthy population so I'll be looking to sell/trade some of those now, just trying to find a reliable method to post them out. If you'd like some of those please let me know :) Here's some pics:
