Has anyone kept Spixi snails?

I used to have them as well and liked them a lot.  They eat hydra which is always useful and didn't both my shrimp.  Their shells will dissolve in soft water so they are better kept with Neos.  Check this out Picture of Spinx snail shell in acidic water

Yes they also eat pond snails and I think ramhorns as well. 

 

I don't recall why I don't have them anymore.  I think their shells just got destroyed in my softwater tanks but don't know what happened to the ones in my hardwater tanks.  I also moved and may have lost them during the move.

Any experience with the spara traps? Maybe I spelled it wrong. Supposed to help trap the snails. I suddenly have some in one tank, been good about not having them. Guess it happens though.

I wonder how they work, trying some homemade ones now seeing how they do.
