    I was about to empty out my jbj 24g that is leaking today but found about 15 of yhese little buggers so decided to leave the tank as is and wait for them to grow before taking the tank down and transfering the snails. They are about 2mm in size. How long do they take to grow, or can I just transfer them?

    Hi JumboSwart! These are fantastic little snails to have. You don't have to worry about them. They are great cleanup crew to have. They don't do any damage. Neither do the breed as quick and as much as freshwater snails.
