    Are you good at colour crosses? I was trying to figure out what colours might result from my gold female and purple male but got totally confused!

    I had a wild brown and yellow/gold create a purple and three whites so snail genes a little random

    I've tried that applesnail.net but since I don't know exactly what genes went in to making either of my snails' colours I wasn't entirely sure what genes the offspring might have! I am kind of hoping for some blue babies though:)

    With mine I would get the typical mom and dad colors. But would also have a handful of mixed colors. You might get lucky :)

    I think the purple and white could be a result from the wild genes.

    Gold is a light foot and light shell and the purple is a dark foot and pink/magenta shell?
    I think you could get gold, jade, blue, and magenta with that combo

    The whites I mentioned have dark feet/bodies. This I've never heard addressed.

    Isn't a white shell with a dark foot considered a blue?

    I thought body or shell had to be blue? Body are black or brown

    Yes, white shell and dark body is called blue because of the blueish tint.
    I'm not 100% sure but I think magenta is the pinkish shell and light foot and purple is pinkish shell and dark foot..? Can anyone confirm this?

    So if my whites shells are blues then what do u call blue shelled with blue body?blue also?
    Also trying to figure who to keep beyond a yellow,the purple, and probably my red mahogany brown. Is a white blue worth keeping ?I was going to keep one thinking unusual. Also is snail incest OK?

    Is the snail dark blue or light blue?

    I don't personally have a blue shell just asking but I can do the link

    I've seen the blue mysteries and they look less blue in person, probably thanks to the fact that it's a white shell with a dark foot and the foot showing through just looks bluish in the right light;)
