    I caught her in the act just about 4am this morning. The other two aquariums seemed to be ruled by the same timing. I now have three clutches of eggs, all white and fresh looking when I get up around 4am. The one below is from two gold inca snails, one is from two pink/magenta/albino snails...

    Pickup only. I have a couple dozen of various colors. All are young, about the size of a pea. Willing to trade for dwarf shrimp, basic supplies, or a modest fee. I'll consider giving a few away in certain circumstances.

    One of the mystery snails has been laying clutches the past couple of nights. I don't know which one (there are lots in that tank) and I don't know if they're fertile. Assuming they hatch, what's the best food to feed the hatchlings? Thanks!
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Okay I'm going to apologize in advance. I'm not very knowledgeable about mystery snail anatomy so I might be about to embarrass my self tremendously. So I've had this snail for about a week and today I noticed a white worm looking thing coming out of its "vent"(the part they poop out of). It's...

    I got a mystery snail a couple of weeks ago. I put it in my 5 gallon tank with my betta, but my betta attacked it (I think he bit off some of its eye stalk thing), so I put my snail in a separate 1 gallon tank with some plants I had in quarantine, and it seemed happy. But then it stopped eating...
