I pulled the first clutch out, and there were baby snails inside. I tried to save them, but alas... I could not. They were light and dark. So, that clutch had the ivory as one parent and either the blue or black as the other. This new clutch I again have no idea to whom they belong. But, at least one parent is blue or ivory.

They're here! It looks like we have blues and blacks. I'm guessing this means the black snail is the dad. Ironically, I named him after a goddess, and the other two after gods. They are teency tiny and still hatching this morning. I'm thinking once they reach the size of a pea (in about a month I believe) they will be ready for new homes. Are any of the people who expressed interest, still interested in these babies?

Okay. So apparently my eyes were playing tricks on me because after staring at them again... they are all the same color. They must get their color later. They're all kinda a whitish color.

I still have no idea what color they are they are so tiny. But, I'm guessing soon I will know. There are only three snails, blue, ivory and black, so they have to be at least two of those.

I'll PM those of you who mentioned interest once they get pea sized. You can have as many as you'd like. There are quite a few of them, although I've read a lot will probably pass away. I've been working on getting some algae growing in the tank to help give the babies some food.
