    Well, they aren't really hermit crabs and I'm trying to post everywhere to see if anyone is interested.
    I have freshwater Asolene Spixi Snail egg clutches up for grabs. It's free to anyone that is willing to pick it up. This is what their shells look like.Asolene spixi
    If anyone has an aquarium and wants some really beautiful PLANT FRIENDLY freshwater snails, get it from meeee!
    I don't ship because it's illegal to ship them across borders or out of the country for that matter. They're a rare find as you will only get them through local breeders. Bought 2 for 4 dollars each!

    I live in North San Jose, California. (Bay Area)
    Egg clutches are FREE and there's probably about 10 or more eggs per clutch. They hatch in less than two weeks.

    I've posted on other forums but no one is really interested in them! :(
    I just want them to go to good homes and I didn't want to resort to having to squish or throw away eggs. It seems like such a waste! Plus, they're expensive babies! I feel like I'm throwing away money. It's just too hard to get rid of them when I can't ship out of state.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT I WON'T GIVE THEM AWAY SO YOU CAN KILL THEM FOR THEIR SHELLS IN THE FUTURE. TAKE THEIR SHELLS WHEN THEY ARE DEAD, DO NOT KILL THEM FOR SHELLS!!!

    Thanks for reading.

    I love snails and have tried to have a clutch of my own, to no avail. :(
    Sadly, however, I live in KY.

    Sorry.

    I can't seem to stop my snails from producing egg clutches. I see new ones almost every 2 days!

    At one point, I had an aquarium with a dozen snails.
    Temperature, pressure, set up... everything was perfect.
    I saw plenty of action, but no one ever produced. :(
