So many baby mystery snail's!

Got a new clutch to hatch a few weeks ago. So proud of my momma snails!

Yep! Great to watch. She was my favorite in the tank. Sadly lost her when we got ich and I increased the temp too high. Would love another but really like my plant's Lol

I got plants specifically to feed my snails, so I'm a bit backwards from most people =P

I sell them to local pet stores or online. My jade color mysteries had babies and a lot of people want one.

They all get Snail Jello, Blanched cucumber, algae wafers, shrimp pellets, and other good nom noms.

I like to make sure they are happy =)

Always wondered about making snail jello but never got round to do it, so it's mainly fresh veg for mine.
