yes!! lets pull out the punnet squares!!
Well since ivory are actually albino it would be considered a recessive trait, my blues produce albino so they have the recessive trait of albino, where about 50% of the produced snails are albino and the other half are blues (at least that was the results I have received from two different clutches by the same blues, they start out the same pale color and the blue gains color over the first month while the albino just grows), however unlike other albino mystery snails do not seem to be at a disadvantage in the home aquarium for growth as long as they are eating.
I hope I can make this happen. I just need enough aquariums for each color, get each color to breed, and make sure to have a small group of each color so I can be sure I have at least one male and female of each color. Unless someone can sex them for me.
Okay finally got a couple of pictures. There are purple with dark feet, light purple with white feet, and white ones with white feet. So clearly their parents were purple and white lol
Oh, nice. Do they always stay somewhat translucent, or do they grow out of that?
They grow out of it.
Nice. I had a hatch about 3 weeks ago. Approx. 200 now scattered in my 5 tanks. Sadly, Gonna have to donate to the fishclub auction on Sunday.
awww!! they are definitely purple!! from what I understand, you can get magenta from that cross... but I am unsure, as I haven't bred purple
So then maybe the lavender ones, will be magenta instead. That would be pretty cool!
I definitely have requests for some snails already, which is great. I’ve never shipped before, but if anyone wants snails let me know. I am willing to learn and ship some for cost of shipping. I will look into the packaging and how much to ship 2-day for a small box. Shouldn’t be much. I will put it on the buy sell trade when they are ready.
Small Priority flat rate is 7.50
I would only use flat rates when it is warm, that way the snails do not perish (it is not quite big enough for enough insulation to keep them good).
Or use at least a medium flat rate box. That provides enough room for insulation.
Yea, thats what I've heard. medium size if doing in cooler weather, but even in hot, I'd use this size. Alli, I will be learning alongside you as far as shipping snails!!
You've got to try it at some point, though
Snails are easy to ship . I ship in bag with a couple ounces of water . And a little extra air ( i always pack with pure O2 but air is ok) I insulate all around with just blown insulation ( you can buy a bale of it at Lowes) .
For sure!! I am just waiting for the weather to warm up!
