Anyone know where I can buy some Japanese trapdoor snails (Viviparus malleatus)? Don't know if they are marketed under a different name, but they should be livebearers. No fancy colors needed, just the natural brown variety.

I don't think those guys are open for retail to the public and their website says they're out of stock, May 2016.

Go T&T supermarket, they have something similar. Cheers
Those are periwinkles snails which are saltwater. Won't survive in my freshwater tank. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken.

I gave H.Botanical a call: they do not carry them. I also heard tnt snails are saltwater. Anyone know which location has them for sale?
T&T ones should be saltwater because they usually keep them in the same water as the lobsters.

I saw them recently at fish addicts. I do believe.
