Red face Wanted: Malayan Live Bearing Snails (Melanoides tuberculata)

I'm having difficulty finding these snails (Malayan Live Bearing Snails or Malaysian Trumpet snails etc.) around my town. Since most people that have these snails have them in surplus I'm wondering if they could send me some. I want them to help control algae in the aquarium. I'm willing to pay for shipping and I'm only looking for a few because I know they reporduce really fast. Email me at oskar@flawlesslogic.com or PM me if you are generous.

Thanks,
Gingrich

I can send you a few Japanese black trapdoor snails (Viviparis malleatus) if you want, they have live young, but get about 2 inches.

Thanks for the offer, but I think your Japanese black trapdoor snails are too big for my taste. I want the Malaysian snails because they burrow into the substrate and are fairly small. I also like that they're nocturnal so I won't have to see them too much.
