    Ahh man! I was able to get 5 before they were gone and put them in my own container. Thanks a lot for them!

    Oh no, sorry I took the snail container. There was less than 20 snails left, so it looks like other people got some before I messed up the system.

    Ahh ok. I had no idea how many were left when you took it. 20 isn't that many. There should have been two containers anyways.

    Well, there's always more snails.

    Thanks Arnold!

    We're just going through everything/acclimating now.

    It's crazy though, we were looking at the hermit crabs and one of them didn't have a shell! Matt found him an empty shell and he crawled in right away. I should have taken a video.

    Maybe I should say he was homeless, not naked?

    Did anyone have surviving snails? I think I went 1/30 :/

    The ceriths I got are doing good, not so sure about the astreas though. We'll give them more time to come out.

    Looks like only one of my astrea snails made it.

    Only two of the four emerald crabs made it so far.

    Now that I'm looking closer I think about half my ceriths didn't make it either :(

    I have a snail graveyard here. I'd bury them in a mass grave at the pet cemetery, but with that many little bodies packed together I'd be afraid of a snail zombie apocalypse. Kind of like a slow motion walking dead.

    Arnold, do you need pictures to send back to the wholesaler of the dead livestock?

    Yeah mine aren't looking so hot. Some are not quite dead but aren't moving either. I got astreas and Nassarius. Curious what y'all did for acclimation? I floated for about 30 min to temp acclimate.

    Wow, that's a lot of dead snails. How do they stay in business? I've still got a bunch of cerith snails if anyone wants them. I forgot to bring them to the swap.

    I floated for 30+ minutes and then drip acclimated for 45 minutes. It wasn't the lack of acclimation that was the issue.

    When I open the bag of astrea the smell was rotten and I could already see a dead snail floating around out of it's shell. I poured off half the nasty water and add tank water. I did this several times before adding them to the tank. I should have known something was up when my cleaner shrimp immediately came out and was trying to eat some of the snails. I was hoping they just smelled good to him after they came out of a sticky container.
