Asking Price Shipping Amount Condition
Best Offer None Excellent


I currently have the following items for sale or trade:


Zig Zag Periwinkles - $.20
Cerith Snails - $.30
Nerite Snails - $.45
Dwarf Planaxis Snail- $.20
Fuzzy Chitons - $.75
Black Ribbed Limpets-$.35 (Not the dangerous key hole limpet. Check Advanced Aquarist for an article on this by searching with the keyword "limpet". These eat algae, and cyano.)

Snail Primer

Name Tank Position (Listed in their preference order)

Zig Zag Periwinkles - Glass, Rocks
Cerith Snails --- Substrate, Rocks, Glass
Nerite Snails --- Rocks, Glass, Substrate
Dwarf Planaxis Snail --- Substrate, Rocks
Fuzzy Chitons --- Rocks sometimes glass
Black Ribbed Limpets --- Rocks, sometimes glass

All of the snails eat diatoms, algae and cyano.


Red Mangrove Propagules (approx. 8 inch seed)- $1
Black Mangrove Propagules (approx. 3 inch seed)- $1

Nice Refugium plants, (mangroves are true plants and not macroalgae) that do not "go sexual" and threaten your ph like macroalgae. They grow very slowly and can be used as a banzai tree afterwards, or in a display refugium. Both have green leaves despite their name, which refers to their root color.

If your order is over $15, (excluding shipping), it will be discounted. The discount prices are as follows:

Zig-Zag Periwinkle- $.15
Cerith Snails - $.20
Nerite Snails - $.35
Dwarf Planaxis Snail- $.20
Fuzzy Chitons - $.65
Black Ribbed Limpets-$.25

The snails will be small to medium. I will send extra snails to cover the possible deaths that may occur during shipping- instead of an Arrive Alive Guarantee. Shipping on this one will be through either Express Mail or UPS Next Day, (our choice), because of a delay problem with shipping I recently had. I think its the holidays. The packages did arrive, but it took longer than the 2 days USPS promised so I want to go with guaranteed shipping this time. This is good for you too, because if the package is late, there is a possibility I can get the shipping refund and forward it to you,- especially since shipping is the biggest cost) Local pickup is free if order over $10, otherwise we probably won't do local pickup because of the cost of gas and logistics.

Sorry, but we can not make special shipping arrangements. We are sorry, but the confusion will cause problems.

The cost of shipping is $33.00 and that includes the heat pack. Shipping for Mangroves Only is $6. Depending on where you live Mangroves may or may not come with heat packs.


I will trade for macroalgae, rarer marine snails, and breeding snails. Nemastoma, (that red algae in the forums Cheetos had), will get you far. :D Livestock trades will have to be in the future, probably in February. (Time enough for some of you to grow out that algae and have some for me...?)I am planning a move in January, and will have to clear out the tank at some point. Unless of course you have an extra powerhead, we can do that right away. ;) Or a protein skimmer....or a wave machine....I am getting in over my head at this point.

If you have any questions about the species, I would love to answer them even if you aren't interested in purchasing them.

Hello: I have an ETS protein skimmer. 50gph. 6 feet tall. If you have any interest, I can be contacted at 352-207-6492. The skimmer and I are located in the Florida Keys despite the Ocala area code.
