Invert Photos
« on: January 01, 2009, 03:15:52 AM »
Thought I'd post some pics of my Pomacea diffusa. :snaileydance

Here are a bunch eating snail jello. Excuse the water spots. With seven tanks, I don't want to waste time trying to clean everything up.lol


A blue P. diffusa that died three weeks ago. His shell is currently on my shelf as a memory.


Gold


Burgundy


The color was a little faded but the snail now has a lovely burgundy color. She was eating a celery I think.lol


One snail at the left with a very unusual color.


Here are their babies. :nod

Dark purple...not sure yet if these have stripes.


Wild green type.


Chestnut


Pink



Clithon corona..not the bumblebee morph. They eat every algae effectively except BGA which is plainly cyanobacteria.



Pomacea canaliculata..I have three adults at 2.5 inches shell diameter and over 70 babies. I had a massive dieoff of hatchlings following my vacation two weeks ago.

Here's the largest cana. She laid about 7 clutches so far.




Some of her babies.




Two others doing the snorno (copulation).lol


Pink cana eggs hatching.

I am expecting about 5-6 new tanks this month to accommodate the snails by the way. :nod I just have too many for my current tanks to handle.

Here are some new set of pics.

LSP (peppermint)


Burgundy


Glow-in-the-dark? :smilieolol5 Chestnut I think. I can't remember which snail got into this.lol


DSP with plaster of Paris at the back.


Another one on the rock.




Five forming a circle or a star?lol


DSP was floating or stuck on the slime trail so I didn't pass the chance to get a pic!


Left: gold, DSP, two LSP
Back: gold and wild (dark striped green)


Broken eggshell on the bed. Two wilds and two DSP on scene.


Babies on the hatchery. They are eating the plaster of Paris in wee bits from time to time.


DSP having a fun time clinging on a lotus.


Gold on his usual lounge.


All wild colors and a jade in a separate tank.


Another tank full of golds. Their color is dominant so I had to separate them as I don't want any more golds.lol


Nom nom nom...


Little cana on his favorite chair. Ignore the pink eggs. They were mauled over by the babies that they fell to the tank. I have four clutches waiting. :rofl


Smallest must have hatched sometime last week or was it two weeks ago? The other three were last month.


Spire angle.


Shell.


Finger sucker. Nom nom nom...


Smaller female about to lay eggs I think.

I don't have these snails yet. You can find in Aquariacentral.com, a lot of well-known snail hobbyists like msjinkzd, Arakkis and Sounguru have them though in vast numbers. :nod

John:

When you visit with msjinkzd please invoke "Ron Jones" and ask Rachel why.

Hopefully you will just pay shipping costs.

AWWW, they are sooo cute! I want bunches of snails so bad but I just can't seem to keep them alive. Their shells start to deteriorate after a few months and they just waste away. It might be that my nitrates are too high for them or I don't have enough calcium. I tried the cuttle bone thing and that didn't work at all. I now have a huge chunk of coral rock in my tank so maybe that would help.

Fortunately they have all gotten shed of me down through the years (do not know what is wrong with Chris?).

Actually Rachel works hard and tries to do good and I helped her get into the Crystal Red Shrimp business.

She has two clutches waiting, John. She just has trouble coping with the demand as many members there kept ordering her snails. Heck, her order of 30 nerites lasted only two days.

  This is the snail that has been growing instead of the cherry shrimp I've been trying to feed.  I think its just a common ramshorn, but its the biggest in my fishroom.

What is the best type of snail to feed a dwarf puffer, and how would I find them?
