About a year ago I noticed a few ramshorns snails with some interesting color. The color was pearl
. So I took these little fellas out and put them in a 5g in hopes they would breed together and put out more of the sme trait. Well my project is finally starting to pan out. Here are the two adults who had the best color all grown up and breeding.
This guy/gal is about a 9 months old. He made it through the initial phases of culling out the best looking first generation adults. He is a MASSIVE ramshorn around the size of a quarter.
Here is the other adult who made it through the first trials. This guy/gal is not as big maybe the size of a nickel and roughly the same age as the fella above.
Here is one of thier young who has made it during my culling. Notice how clear it is and the pearl like skin and color of the shell. Hopefully when this little creature is an adult he/she will have a very pearl color. Also notice the defined sparkles. OOOOOhhhh im excited for this little guy. Dont mind the little snail cleaning him on the bottom left, thats a baby melenoides granifera.
Here is an example of what gets culled. This guy is a little smaller than a dime and could probably breed. He is in a 2.5g all by himself on algae and micro-organism cleaning duty. He still has a biege color that is still ok but he/she is probably more likely to put out that dominant brown, and we dont want that. His foot has some pink in it and it is hard to see in this picture but there is layers in his shell that are more pearl than other layers
