Congrats on your babies. They are so darling when they are itty bitty tiny! There's nothing cuter than a miniature snail face.

he's in my guppy 10 gal tank now ha

so i've got like 30-40 babies hatched and 3 clutches now ha
1 clutch is only 5 days old and is about to hatch!!! I cant believe the luck i'm having seeing as the shortest normal is 8 days ha.

The other 2 are 4 days old and 2 days.

Shame you're not in the UK. I'd love to take a few off your hands. :P

What age will they be when you start to see their colours developing? What colour are the parents and will they be the same or can't you tell?

Sorry for all the questions.

They were born with their colors, they seem to all be gold with little black dots going along the middle of their shells, some have less/more black.

The daddy is a black mystery snail and the mommy one of the common gold snails (like the apple just the size of the mystery) both parents are about an inch long. You can see pics of them in the pic gallery forum under my 55 gallon tank.

O AND I JUST HATCHED OUT A NEW CLUTCH!!!
they seemed ready so i gentle broke them out in water and they are now running around a breeding net in my 55 gallon ha, that batch was only 5-6 days old. And my 4 day old looks to be ready to be hatched out tomorrow 0-0 i guess i'm good at this hahaha. And my 2 day old clutch is looking promising to be ready in 3-4 days.

haha yeah i guess i am, they are so easy to care for thankfully and they have a huge 40 gallon aquarium being made ready for them now at my LFS (my best friend runs the fish area ha) so we're going to put them all in there when they get 1/2 inch and i make 75 cents for each one they sell :]

so i think i can actually make a profit off this haha.
I have like 30-40 weeks old babies. (these are 5 x the size of the new babies)
And now 30-40 hour old babies.
