Lainey, some of my pea sized diffusas are dark footed chestnuts and purples.

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!

Time for baby update. My sister was playing around with her camera so she got some pics of my baby Pomacea diffusa. Here they are.

Purple diffusa roaming around looking for food. It's from the first clutch. It seems all my clutches yielded more purples than anything else. I do have ivory, burgundy, jade, chestnut, blue and a few others but some are seldom around in sight.





Here's a baby chestnut. It kept circling a pair of leaves of the Egeria densa, probably confused where it should go. It never attempted to 'parasnail' all the time it happened.lol





Chestnut finishing off the algae together with the Clithon corona and a few adult diffusas.





Another chestnut. My sister tried to take pics of its eyes as close as she could.



A few babies crawling around a rock. There are several of them but most spend too much time slacking off on plant leaves, driftwoods and at the back where there is too many plants.




Baby Pomacea canaliculata. They're two weeks old. I have several others who are three weeks old already and growing rather quickly.

The egg color varies with different species of apple snails. Diffusas lay peachy colored eggs which exhibit an almost moldy appearance with blue spots indicating they will hatch anytime soon. I still have several eggs still hatching. The ones you saw are of the canas. They turn white when they hatch soon.

i like snails :) their colours are great,
are you going to keep them all ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm still deciding at the moment. I want some to go but I really want to make sure the new owners are responsible so if they want the snails badly, I'll force them the caresheet before they get the snails. I don't want to hear from them the snails are treated badly. On the other hand, I prefer them to stay with me so I'll be assured they live a comfortable life until death. I have over 200 of them here. I can accommodate them but the next generation, I probably won't be able to anymore.

Yep. They'll be reproducing clutches of eggs again when they get the urge to do it.

You're in Massachusetts. Are you interested in snails? I know of a few people who can sell them for you or make trades with you within the state if you like? I'd love to ship you some of mine but considering I live in Asia, it'll be very costly.lol

i'd love some snails, but i think my parents would hit the roof if i got another tank. theyre already kinda iffy about have two. its kind of unfortunate cos i'd definately have at least five by now.

yeah asia is a bit far away XD
