Neat shrimps and snails, msjinkzd!:D
You have a great selection. Did you breed them all or buy some in?
Here are mine at about a month age.:? They're currently nearing 5 cm in size now although this is only an estimate.
I've recently bred my Pomacea Bridgesii as well! I noticed my two large snails were acting strangely, constantly hanging out above the waterline, then I woke up one morning and found one large egg sac, the next morning there was another, then a few days later, another sac.
I did some reading and read about the two weeks of incubation they need, etc and to provide the sacs with occasional sprays of water if they are in a dry area of the tank. While the lid of my tank does stay relatively moist from the condensation, I provided them with moisture directly from the tank.
After a few weeks, I noticed the sacs had many punctures and there are a bunch of little snails crawling around on my glass! My gosh are they every tiny! They grow quickly, too. :D :D
BTW your shrimp are wonderful, particularly the coloring on Crystal red caridina. From the looks of it the tanks are nicely planted too. I wish I did a live plant setup. :(
Thanks! All the tanks (including the snail tanks) are heavily planted.
Here is the snowball tank:

And some day old bridgesii babies:
Matt, well done!:thumbsup:
Pomacea canaliculata now a mommy of 4 clutches. Two other clutches are from another female. First clutch yielded over 80 babies. Second clutch hatched yesterday yielding over 150 babies. Here she is racing to baseball size. The adults are slowing down on plant consumption. First clutch of babies are already pea-sized.
Here are some Pomacea bridgesii eating snail jello. Excuse the slight suture damage due to previous owner's acidic water conditions. They're fed with plenty of foods and calcium pills. The shells are now repairing themselves.
Mom with her babies crawling all over her.

Eating a celery..mmmm...
Clithon corona, not the bumblebee morph. Have 10 of these and they are wiping out all algae effectively.
