Bladder snail - an annoying 'pest' snail.
But can you get rid of them by selling them as feeders for pea puffers , etc?
Is it even allowed?

Wow, the link you sent had expensive snails...
I started out with with only 5 (hitch-hiked on my plants) of the but it was 30 (4 months ago, my tank is 7 months old), and now I can't even count how many!!! :lol:
If I was to sell (not now though) it would probably be a few pennies each...just to get rid of 'em.

Hi
I actually love the bladder snails (or any snails).
I find them less robust than ramshorn snails and a great addition to small tanks.
If you have population explosions you most likely are having too large of a food source in the tank.
On the other hand once you make up your mind in regards of pricing I will be more than happy to take some of your hands.

Definetly...(my brain kicks in) I have to.
I don't know but I feel like the cherries in my tank are starting to die off :(
@Konsa will let you know when I can sell them.
...I should make a poll for the price ;)
*Perhaps first 10 free?

Hi
no snail will ever outcompete shrimp for food.Not in a milion years.
Have you noticed any shrimp babies in the tank.Maybe yours are not breeding properly and thats why you are seeing population decline.The adults don't live forever you know ;)

It doesn't sound viable, I'm sure this is the case for every LFS but at least mine will give you big handfuls for free if you want them.
