I ordered a nerite snail and when it arrived all was well and there was even an extra bonus snail in the bag. The extra snail turned out to be helpful because one of the snails is thriving zooming around the tank while the other is not doing so well, all signs point that he is not dead but he is also not moving. Over all I am very satisfied with my purchase from Flip Aquatics.
Thank you so much for your order! Your one snail that is not moving around is likely not dead. During shipping snail sometimes go into a hibernation-like state and may not become active again for up to a week. Please give this snail some time and let us know after a week how it is doing. Please email us at email@example.com for any questions.
Four healthy nerite snails arrived (when only three were ordered). Overall, they're doing well and, based on multiple orders, I have a high degree of confidence in Flip.
Both snails came in perfect, I ordered one and because of the horrible weather. Flip Aquatics waited to ship, both snails are doing great. I would highly recommend.
I was wondering what kind of nerites I was going to get, as were just listed as 'variety', and got zebras. Very cute and healthy looking. Good physical condition and very active. The packaging looks trustworthy, had some kind of thick black foam box within the cardboard box and also some thin foam papering filling in the empty space around the bag of water containing the snails. I'm happy with my purchase and will definitely look to this site when ordering live animals online.
I will definitely order from Flipaquatics.com again in the future. Fast shipping, great packaging and an extra snail, not to mention healthy animals sold me as a lifetime customer!
