    Hi Thankyou ! :p:) , Yes I was a member before a loong time ago .. but I left because people starting argueing and stupid things like that ... but I have heard its all friendly and everything again now :p I dont know if the topic is still there but my old username was buse and I made a topic in the Forum Chatroom section called counting to 1000 ? it might not be there anymore ! but I dunno :p:) !

    Hi thankyou , I did but it was extremly messy so i used moss in the corner for them to bury in and they were fine with it , layed eggs and everything and it was generally alot tidyer and less messy for me :p

    Thankyou ! good luck with yours x what species are you getting? Fulica ?

    Cute snails....and the albino's are quite rare.

    I really would recommend a soil/peat/coir substrate that needs to be a minimum of 4 inches deep. I can tell you love your snails - but If you don't like mess than GALS are not for you, as you wouldn't be taking care of them properly.

    I Hve Been Keeping GALS For A Number Of Years .. They Did Infact Thrive In My Care .. Maybe I Worded My Reply Wronge I Dont Know ?

    I Even Have Rescued 11 Snails From Brixton Market , And Another Reason To Why I Switched To Moss Substrate Is Because I Kept Getting Nasty Bugs In The Soil ...

    Thaankyou For Your Concern But I Really Do Know What Im Talking About :)

    I Dont Own Any Snails At The Moment Anyway ( I Rehomed Them All Because I Have Now Moved To Turkey )
