I have leopards running around everywhere in my 5.5. Sadly, no reds though.

Live plants, nope. They eat the dead or dying ones though.

All of mine are the same color, from babies to adults.

Funny thing is, I had one red snail (adult) that I pulled from a tank and put it as the only snail into another tank. However, all the snails that sprung form this one snail are leopard snails. Can ramshorns retain sperm? I know that they can reproduce through parthogenesis, but that would mean then that all the snails should be red, not leopards.
