I been keeping two type of rabbit snail together for over a year now..

I got some off online and was told it was orange rabbit snail..they came to me a year ago as baby..

Order a few yellow rabbit snail as adults... (now I only have two yellow, this yellow snail have dark wrinkle on this trunk)

Those so called orange rabbit snail that grew up ( I have about 4-5 adults), are not even close to the pictures seen online... I know the seller back then say it was from his/her tank and not F0 but F1 generation.

Speed up to date now, their skin is orange with wrinkle that are brown throughout their trunk. Orange poso don't have any of this brown wrinkle on this nose.. it's usually all bright orange!

Now the offspring for which I have over a dozen+ are not even close to their parents.. skin color wise.

They must have hybrid with the two yellow because they have color and traits from each species.... The baby rabbit snail skin are pretty brown with dark wrinkle...

It also goes to tell/show people that they shouldn't keep rabbit snail of different/species color together which you would find they say is okay...

Unless anyone find my information above is false and can prove me wrong..i would like to know

Now what do I do with the adults and hybrid baby? feed them to my assassin snail? I don't really want to sell this to people..

Just like a red rili shrimp can breed with any neo shrimp, I would think it's possible the rabbit snail can do this too? am I wrong?

You can't house different color type in the same tank because Tylos do cross-breed, but this is not what your intention in the first place.

Anyways, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some people will accept and raise them the way they are. Please, don't kill them or feed them to Assassin Snails.

Sell them but make sure to mention where they came from.
