so they basically look like my snail in question?

your description of the 2" ones sound like they are a specie of sulawesi snail...

But then again these look so different that they might as well be two different animals =/
That means that my yellow posos never bred after all :'[

Another thing is that i never see tiny baby MTS. the babies of this odd looking snail are much larger than what most MTS profile pages say they are at birth.

and what do those hybrids look like?
What do i have here? an MTS? or a hybrid?

And did you mean that sulawesi snails hybridize or MTS will hybridize WITH sulawesi snails?

no, sulawesi hybridize with each other.

MTS babies often hide in substrate, i rarely see them in my tanks

any idea if the hybrids are sterile, or have you not experimented on that yet?

ok then you also agree that what i have here is an MTS case right?

Ok, thanks for you opinions guys!
The more i look at these, the more it makes more sense why they appear so quickly in my tank. a sulawesi snail would not be able to give birth so many times in such a small time period. I have many more of these odd-looking snails than i have sulawesi snail babies, so these must be MTS.
Case closed!

I know you asked to abandon but I have to say you're yellow poso is awesome and you're vid is adorable!

If you added anything, plants, wood, rock, etc,it may explain how they got there...

haha, that has to be my favorite snail themed pic :P
thanks I really love my yellows. its unfortunate that they have not bred yet though...
these MTS all started from one single snail (the one photographed in this thread. its my biggest and oldest MTS). It must have hitch hiked on some moss as a very tiny baby snail because i have never seen one before in any of my tanks and it appeared out of nowhere in my tank with my yellow posos and moss, so i assumed it was born from the yellows! I was wrong...
