I've got about six left. Took the rest into the LFS. A mix of dark stripe purple and "wild". So half took after pop. I -think- the blue was the mother. But I had seen both females out of water at the time. The clutch you saw being laid then was not allowed to hatch. It was crazy enough with one!

xD I can imagine all those babies

I wish you lived closer to me, if ever you bred them again I would totally want a blue or one of those stunning dark purples.

I had my blue mystery snail die recently, they die quick for some reason. I have my two assassin snails and my tank full of pond snails I use to feed them or the "snack tank".

Tikibirds- Is that fuzzy snail an apple? It looks so wild with all of that green everywhere! :D

I love my snails, I don't think tanks are complete without them! I have a slew of rams, MTS, and ponds. A gold mystery, a blue mystery, a big brown trapdoor (my favorite), a tiny little baby horned nerite, and an assassin.

Someday I'd love to get some of those Rabbit Snails! They're so weird with their noses :D

Are teh assassins okay with the mystery snails? Do they leave them alone?

I don't know if they are or not, I have them in separate tanks, because I wasn't sure if the mysteries would be safe.

I just looked it up, and Assassins will gang up on an Apple/Mystery snail. I think otherwise they're just too small to do much damage.

Does anyone know just what my gold snail is doing to my blue one?

That is what I thought, I was concerned about assassins ganging up on Tesla. I'll have to wait for an assassin friendly setup to get some then because Tesla gets snail priority in Nix's tank. He is king snail in those lands.

Looks like they are mating.
