    Mystery Snail eggs

    Finally got a pair and some eggs to go along with it. So far they have laid two batchs of eggs. I'm super pumped to have them breeding. I had problems keeping them alive before, let alone getting them to breed. It seems simple and dumb, but this is something I've been trying to get for longer than I care to admit.

    They are nasty little things. What color are the parents?

    Both are pinkish. I'm hoping for some blues/purples out of the batches.

    Terrific, I was not able to get mine to breed last time. I will have to try again soon. You do anything different this time?

    I increased the temps to 82*-83* in the tank and have left about 3" up top for them to lay. Other than that, there are no fish in the tank that would pick on them. Before I think there were some livebearers in there.

    Mainly it seems to just have the proper conditions available when they are ready to pair up and start trying. Of course, they've been pairing and try for at least three months and I am just now getting eggs.
