I had a weird question about mystery and apple snails, can they reproduce together?
I had a male & female channeled apple snail and a male & female gold mystery snail as well as one male ivory mystery snail in a 20 gallon. I did see the male apple and gold mystery female mating, now I have interesting coloured babies in the tank.
So I missed an egg patch, I didn't want babies, but now that I have them, I'm just wondering if this is their juvenile colour or will it change as they age?
The snails are about 3 weeks old now, most are in a 10 gallon because there was just too many. And I'm going to be selling/giving them away and just wanted the right information to hand out with them as well!!
Thoughts?

Most mystery snails are apple snails so i would say yes.

Apple snail and mystery snail are used interchangeably.. These snails look awesome! I would love to get some from you when I am able.. Sn - you must have 50 post/reply on the forum to be able to buy, sell, or trade as I have read.. I am new and working my way there, when/if you get there also and intend to list these let me know - I am interested!

These are beautiful! Very cool shell pattern, maybe leave a few clutches to hatch again.

I figured they were pretty much the same or similar and can breed, i just didn't want to send like an idiot! LOL... Which has happened before so I just want to educate myself.
I am planning on leaving the two in the 20 gallon because Ive had so many people interested in the pattern on these guys. I'm just going to be selling/giving them away on a facebook page for people near me.
Thanks everyone tho!

You will never sound or seem like an idiot here. We’re all here to learn from eachother, no one knows everything. But im so far away but I want..
