    So ive got two tanks now with ramshorns. One is strictly blue and pearls, then my main tank started as only dark brown, red, and gold with 2-3 pearls that kept hiding. Since then of course we've had babies :) i was highly surprised that about 75% of the babies are a leopard coloration, and a good amount are pearls. Then theres 3 that look like dalmations. Pearls but with dark almost black leopard spots. Im thinking when they get bigger removing them to thier own jar and seeing what babies i can get out of them. I havent seen this color before so im intrigued. I tried getting a halfway decent picture but the light reflects off them a little too well. Lol. Heres the best that i could get. Theres two sitting next to each other in the middle of the big guys. The cory is Bertha if anyones interested lol.

    Thier spots are much darker than it looks in the picture. I might pull them sooner rather than later so they dont mate early with one of the big boys.

    I love them :) I've actually started adding some freeze dried daphnia every meal on top of the bannana leaves. They swarm it.
