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!

Very pretty baby. I love the color.
They dont 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 :whistling:

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

LOL. I might have to try to breed some Nerites ;D.
That would be fun! I would like to try that some day, but I'm not sure if I'll ever have a SW 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

I have two others that look just like that =3

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

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
