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.

I just hope I can get a pic of them laying their eggs if they were not discreet about it. It's a unique behavior.

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.

As to breeding these snails, how do you do it? Do you just acquire a large number of them and let them do their thing or is there any human involvement that is necessary.

Which snails are you hoping to breed? If it was those mystery snails (Pomacea diffusa), assuming your tank is warm and humid, I just leave the eggs to hatch there otherwise I would intervene by incubating them myself. Wrap them in damp tissue towels and place them in a warm area. Check regularly for changes. Prior to hatching, the eggs should be white with blue spots at the center. I just hatched a new clutch with over 150 babies and two more clutches pending and then more eggs coming from the ladies.
