    Hello! I’m somewhat new to owning GALS. My mother had some when I was much younger, but hers since passed away and she has shared her love of creatures with me. I had some queries about how I should set my tank up for my snails. I’ve put the thermostat on the same side as the heat mat (which is...

    Hi, I bought two lovely snails and have been really enjoying them zoom around and munch on the food every night. About 2 nights ago, though, I only saw one coming out to feed and figured the other one must just have been hiding under the moss. When I didn't see him/her for a few nights I have...

    I find it very hard to identify my snails. I really hope they're not fulica as they are not allowed in Norway. The one hope I have is that one of my snails died because to my old apartement got too cold. Aren't fulica supposed to tolerate cold to some extent? I've had my snails for 3yrs now...

    Does anyone here keep (or know of anyone who keeps) these? What about Limicolaria? Caracolus? C.nemoralis? Really wanting to track some of these down and just don't seem to know where to start, as I've had a few years break from snails and seem to be completely out of the loop now.

    Can anyone help me find some C. nems? I can only find C. hortensis in my area and only managed to find 2 nems in Devon whilst on a weekend away. I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks.
