Probably in a couple weeks.
There are ones with different colored shells. I have 2 of the variations. I have some that are the same color as yours and some like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/25-Live-FW-MTS-M...QQcmdZViewItem

I usually only see these snails when doing gravel vac's (they don't get sucked up all the way but do float up and down in the tube when vac'ing) and at night, when they come out.
If you have sand, turning it over with your hand you will be able to find them. The babies just look like miniature versions of the adults.

if you turn off ur aquarium lights and dim the room lights and watch a tv show, by the time its over you will see all the babies on the plants, wall, filter and heaters. I like mine very much so.
