Pomacea bridgesii
Have 10 colors of these. Originally, the previous owner gave me gold, ivory, blue and purples but she must have been in a hurry that I got a few more colors including black, jade, chestnut and burgundy.

Here's a bunch of them eating snail jello.


A few individual pics..






My brig clutch has resulted in several purples, burgundy and golds. The purples are light striped.


Pomacea canaliculata
Here's the mom who laid four clutches so far. I've raised her for 8 months already and is 2.5 inches in size currently.






Babies are clinging on her. Fie are about to go to be traded with more brig clutches possibly. I have over 300 babies anyway.



Clithon corona
Not the bumblebee morph...I have 10 of these and are well fed with plenty of algae that I cultured.



Just for a bonus, here are some of my loaches. I have 6 more species with no pics at the moment.
Yasuhikotakia modesta, nastiest loach there is. Have 9 of these. Ignore the yellow color. My river setup is very heavy from tannins so I had to use flash.






New Arrivals
Not yet. I'm expecting Sulawesi snails (Tylomelania sp.) by the time I come back from my vacation on December 21. Stay tuned.8) I've ordered Asolene spixi, Anentome helena and Marisa cornuarietis but I don't know really if they are available but I'm hopeful.

I'm currently on the search for more native nerites and then the endangered Pila conica which is to believed to be extinct now after overpoaching and the introduction of canas have displaced them but I have refused to give up trying. Our local biologists are just plainly ignorant of the existence of the gastropods, sad to say.

It seems the name Pomacea bridgesii has been changed by Ken Hayes to Pomacea diffusa.

Here's the pic of a dark foot-blue diffusa.

I'll get a tank pic once I get back from vacation. It's only large driftwoods and smooth large rocks in there.
