    Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

    not astrea, not even close. best guess would be closer to a turbo species, chestnut or zebra based on color

    Looks like a Nerite though it could also be a Margarita -- can't really tell from the photos.

    They have the color of a chestnut, shape and size of a margarita... not an astrea. But I'm guessing they are good to be in there. Just was seeing if anyone had seen/dealt with them before.
