The fishtank as a whole adds another element to our lives with animals that I never would have imagined.
For Jon, it’s about caring for and always refreshing the environment in one way or another. For me, it’s mostly a visual experience.
I’m not as interested in taking care of the plants and animals as I am just watching them. And it’s the Mystery Snails that really hold my attention.
I love to watch the way they move.
Graceful and quicker than I’d ever believed a snail could move, I’m fascinated by how they glide over rocks, plants, and even other snails. How they effortlessly contort their bodies in one flowing movement.
I know snails are not for everyone, I’ve watched people’s eyes glaze over when I talk about them, similar to how my eyes glaze over when Jon talks about Revolutionary Battles. But I’ve also experienced learning to care about things that I had no interest in because of another person’s passion.
Maybe I’ve captured a bit of my Mystery Snail passion in this video.
