Apple Snails
 
Pomacea diffusa
Male found copulating with my female. I have about 6-8 males overall out of the original 40 I got.:-? They haven't laid eggs yet but I'm not fussed about it to be honest as I have over 200 of these snails already.:shock:

Pomacea canaliculata
Female caught laying eggs in the dead of night.:lol: They are very discreet about this activity preferrign to lay eggs when no one can disturb them.

First egg caught.

Good luck with the new eggs!
I have recently started getting into the apple snails.
I made some of the Plaster of Paris for them, they like it, even seen my olive nerites sitting on the block a few times.
