Snails >@_ ...........

I have often wondered why so many aquarium keepers hate snails. I like them. They are cute. I have many kinds of pet snails, including apples, vivipareds, and malasians. I also have small ramshorns and pondsnails that are kept in check by my salamanders, newts, loaches, and goldfish. I see nothing wrong with letting fish eat snails, because thats the way nature works, but flushing snails down the toilet is horrible. I actually ask pet stores to let me have extra small snails so that I don't run out.
