Quick Question about Mystery Snails

Ok, so as you may know my snails have bred...a lot...and 2 clutches have hatched (both of which I was very lucky to catch hatching!). Here's my question:

How long before you know what color they will be? Or are they born that color?

Thanks!

two weeks you'll be able to see patterns on their shells. some are like black with goldish spots..well at least those are the ones that are in my tank..

please watch and share with friends and family.
