Wow that's a lot off eggs how many large snails do you have?

I plan on seeing what happens if they hatch I'm sure my fish will take out a lot of them. My LFS would take some if need be. I also might get some assasins!

The one on top/side during mating is the male.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

LMAO Roman orgies!!!!!!!

There is a way to sex them on applesnail.net but it involves the snail being co operative. I normally just separate them as a pair and watch them. If they mate then I make note of the male and female.

looks as though they are hatching. In my experience, it only takes 8-10 days in decent humidity. They appear to be baby blues.

The have hatched and are everywhere! I thought I'd share some pics of the parents making more. If you see tiny specks those are the babies.
