First of all, let me introduce myself! I'm Felipe Aoki and I'm from Brazil.
I have these amazing little guys in all of my tanks. Thet help A LOT when it comes to controlling algae. A little one layed it's eggs on the front glass, so I could take some very nice pictures!
here they go:
The happy couple breeding (note the little tube they use to exchange sperm):
Right after the ritual, the tube is even more visible:
The eggs right after the laying:
After 24hs, the little white dots have taken some shape, but not much:
After 48hs, the little snails can be very clearly seen inside the eggs. Note the little eyes and shells:
After 72hs, the hatching. I's amazing to watch, because with help of a 20x magnification, I could see the huge struggle they have to go through to hatch the eggs. So little, so strong :bounce:
Hope you guys enjoy it!
