Adorable! Not kidding, that's actually really cute.
Good thing they only have one baby at a time!

yeah seriously! i heard there were instances of two babies being born at a time, so i poked around my gravel, but just found this little guy! i'm perfectly happy with that though.

so an update: Baby still has no name, but he likes to climb. And he hides. the other day i tore the 3 gallon apart looking for him, looked through almost every bit of gravel, and then put it back together and put Swish and Darroh back in very upset. Then a few hours later he was crawling across the gravel again. He's so funny, and I absolutely adore him.

he's hiding again today though xD

Yea, I hear the babies are crazy active and the adults pretty lazy.
My boy will eat straight through the night!
How's Darroh's behavior? My adult snail just lays around most of the day. It's worrying sometimes!

She's pretty lazy, yeah. Sometimes she will wake up for awhile and scoot around, but she usually finds a corner to stick her nose in and just lays there. Then i get worried and move her next to the cuttlebone or algae wafer. I need to get some veggies.
I keep meaning to work on an information sheet for them. I really like these guys. And i think i'll breed them. Since they don't breed like crazy it would be fairly easy to get someone to buy them. I already know someone who said he'd take like four if i had that many so he could breed too.

An info sheet would be great.
I'm sure some members on here would buy them.
You cater to the USA people, I'll cater to the Canadians! :D
I've been meaning to get some more of them, but the ones they have now are actually brown bodied and I don't want to mix types.

Yeah. People don't know much about them. And yeah members on here would maybe buy them!
I will probably just stick to the yellow rabbit snails for now. The other ones are sooo pretty too though. Orange. Gold. Spotted. o 3o I'll stick to my yellows for now though xD

there was a baby in the tank at my lps that i keep thinking i want to go get. maybe they'd give it to me cheaper x3

I want to get a second type in my rainbowfish 20 gallon that I'm setting up, so maybe I'll get some chocolates. Gotta keep an eye out for more yellows though!
I wish there was a way to sex them properly. I'm scared that if I buy one it'll be the same as my first one and I won't get anywhere. xD

Yeah if i get another big tank set up, i'll get a different kind.

And I agree on the sexing thing! Which is why I'll probably end up buying two or three more. More of a chance that i'll get both genders! And who knows what gender baby is. I auto-refer to every critter who's gender i cant immediately tell as a boy xD like Darroh...rofl
