    Hi, looks very interesting.
    I saw this species in a stock list, I think that the sponge has some mutual symbiosis with the snail...

    Very interesting. Will be interesting to see how the sponge does, as I belive sponges are filter feeders to may not have enough food in clean aquariums.
    If it doesnt survive, I hope the snail can survive without it.
    Do all examples of this species of snail have sponges on them? I cant see how either animal would benefit, but it is very interesting.

    Is this natural or you stick the sponge onto it?
