My babies are growing up! Slowly, but surely lol

I got them when they were smaller then a peice of normal-sized gravel, and not they are almost half the size of my finger nail =D (pic at bottom)

Also got a cute video of one of them munching the algae off one of the rocks in there X3


Enjoy!

They don't stay that color though. When they get big, they get the same color as the Mysteries in the store (yellow-y). I'm also getting a purple one and a blue one =D

No lol I guess some of the color depends on genetics though. The parents of these guys lighter then that (), but I have seen some that look just like the "albino" ones at PetSmart lol

LOL How 'bout not

I used to have those, but they get sucked up when you do gravel vacs. Not sure how I got them, but they were cute lol

That would be fun! I would like to try that some day, but I'm not sure if I'll ever have a Saltwater tank LOL

Snails are fun. Some times you are like "Oh... Snails...." But after you have them, then you dont, you really miss them. Its weird lol

My PetSmart has albinos. I bet one around you would have them, or could order them for you

I am not aware of any pet supermarkets.....are they a southern thing? they sound pretty cool. well I have more stores than the ones I mentioned, I just meant those were the biggest ones, like right near me. ohhhh I forgot about aquarium adventure....hmmm. that's where I found my dark footed purples. they carry some unusual colors sometimes. too bad I was there the other day and didn't think to check! hahah

They must be. They are just now getting to be a well known chain here, and their number of stores is exlpoding (no lie lol). I did a search for them in Ohio on their website, and it came up with nothing lol
