Best Answer

Aquarium snails are different from regular land snails. All aquatic snails have gills. Just like their land relatives, these snails also have radula(rasping tongue),tentacles, and hard shells. Aquatic snails do not have as developed eyes as land snails. Many aquatic snails have a door or an opcerium at the entrance of their shell. Some aquatic snails also grow to the size of a Baseball.
