The fry are looking amazing. They are getting big. The snail doesn't look abnormally large.

Thank you! :D Snails better watch their eyeballs haha. I saw one fry come charging up to one of the snails and ram him in the face. So rude lmao. Poor snail didnt come out of his shell for 10 minutes

I once had a male that ate the stalks off of my mystic snail. They grew back, but every time the male swam anywhere near him, he zipped into his shell and stayed there for quite awhile. I can't blame him.
Your fry are really coloring up. Soooo pretty! I love bright colors.

LOL Poor snail! They're so abused because they're so slow hahaha. The fry really seem to like the gold one. Not sure if its because he's brightly coloured or something but they usually follow him around.
The babies are definitely getting bigger, I'm so proud! <3 I think they're growing so slow due to how many there are lol. It's insane

I had the same thing happen to one of my snails, but unfortunately another snail had a chunk taken off of it and died.

I would also think the slow growth would be due to the size of your spawn. 218 is a lot of fry (minus how many died).

Awww! RIP snail buddy!! That's pretty lame. Speaking of snails, my LPS only has Assassin and Ramshorn snails, Would those guys be okay in my sorority? I dunno much about snails and compatibility with fishies.

This is definitely the biggest spawn I've ever had lol. I wish they'd grow faster!! I haven't found any dead ones at all yet, the only one that I saw dead was the one I culled and it wasn't even from the same spawn lol. Either the snails are doing a great job at finding them before I see them dead, orrrrr I haven't lost any somehow o.O

Yes these snails would be fine in a sorority, but you should know that they reproduce like crazy. (If you dont want a whole bunch of them then I would suggest finding others.)

Personally I would love this to happen with mine, but they wont :/....

That is great! IMO they grow to be hardy once they hit a good month old. This has always happened to me though.

NO MORE REPRODUCTION!!! Lmao. I'll stick to mystery snails then :P Thanks for the info :)

They do seem to get more hardy and less fragile around a month old, now that I think about it lol. I found some really runty ones tonight when I moved the plants around. They're like 1/2 cm long, whereas the biggest ones are just over 1 cm. Godzilla is almost 1/2inch long haha. Glad I took him out
