the babies are tiny ,to small to see what they are really ,but they seem to be a light brown and a different shape from the adult 1..more pointed and twisty ,but cant be sure as they are minute .the adult is 1and half cm max...

I'm thinking the little ones are pond snails and the big one is a nerite.

His other snails are Malaysian trumpet snails.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
