Salvinia/Gold mystery snails

This is the second time buying from Flip aquatics. Plants and mystery snails arrived alive very nicely packaged. I really encourage people that haven’t ever ordered fish online,to give give Flip a try. Great customer service!

Fast shipping, great packaging, all doing well.

Salvinia arrived healthy and very well packaged along with my Malaysian trumpet snails and java moss. Both plants and the snails were very healthy and are doing well.

Note that the while the portions of plants are described accurately (my 1 portion = about ten leaves, as described), with this particular plant it is a rather small amount. Something like a small condiment container (essentially what they're shipped in) to give you an idea of the volume.

My portion rather naturally divided (i.e. without cutting) into three, which I have in two very small tanks. Two of three are showing new root and leaf growth, and all are remaining mostly green as of 10+ days later.

Salvinia is VERY textured and resembles a Venus's fly trap mouth. My plants are quite "compressed" in growth, so this is a quite different effect for the water surface than a flat "pad"-like growth of other floaters. Under the waterline, roots are fuzzy and brown with new root growth first appearing green.

Packaging was extremely secure and well done (my order included live snails). Shipping was very fast as well.

Overall very impressed and will order again.
