Just separated most of the larger babies from the tank... I stopped counting at 87. So far, it seems like we have roughly 50:50 ivories and purples (variations include darker purples, lighter purples, and ones with pinkish hues) for shell colour. Almost all of them appear to have white/ivory feet.

We are going to do small flat rate priority boxes. That is $5.80, if the online price is accurate.

The snails are doing great. We spent all of Sunday setting the snails up in a makeshift rubbermaid pond. It honestly took hours to scoop out the rest of the mystery snails. We also realized we have countless different kinds of nerites and Malaysian trumpet snails when we cleaned out all our betta tanks. We found a giant striped nerite (well, giant for a nerite) we never seen before.

Yep. We stuffed the pond full of duckweed and stem plants to help keep the ammonia levels down.
