When I had a Betta fish named Sam Wynter, I had a fish tank that a lot of black snails in them and one that I was fond of I named Dikembe after the basketball player Dikembe Mutombo. This was a very large snail, at least 5 times bigger than the rest. The snails came from buying live plants, they were like alge eaters. Everytime we cleaned the tank we had to check all the rocks by hand for snails before we washed them. This was quite a chore. I created this memorial for all of them becuase they were all pets and I always enjoyed watching him. There was over 20, but he was the only one with a name. I did end up getting another very large grey snail for a while, but he was never named, just Dikembe and my first two, Heckle and Jeckle.
