I have some snails that were first collected out of a puddle in a dirt road months ago. I know the rules about posting fish tank pictures asking for ID. Are inverts the same? Can I post an unknown snail pic in a tank? They are multiplying well and Im just curious of the species.

Thanks for asking. Go ahead with snails. Bivalves would be a different story, as are fish.

Not sure why the pic is rotated 90 degrees. The snail is on a shed deer antler. SW Georgia.

Physa, a left-handed pond snail.
