Thorny Nerites! #1
After being refused by several online sellers, and my LFS refusing to get them in cos they don't travel well and their last order of them was DOA, I finally managed to get four thorny nerites!

They arrived in a bag with about a teaspoon of water, and were all trucking about merrily upon arrival, waving their zogabongs (may not be the correct official term) about.

They're too tiny to photograph tonight but they are lovely and stripy and like little bumblebees!

DELIGHTED

Are you sure you have Nerites?

It sounds like you may have Assassin snails.

Yep, they're clithon corona.

They had their antennae out when they arrived. Just realised zogabongs is an Irish term :)
