The parents are Ivory and black. The first clutch that hatched came from a little girl I had just bought though, so there is a chance that the parents of that clutch could both be black.Rtessy said:Unfortunately it's too early to tell, the speckling is 100% normal, and I think the only thing that can be ruled out is ivory.
What colors were the two parent snails? I should be able to tell you what the babies will be based on that.
Otherwise, it takes around 1-2 months to tell the color, but it takes 3ish to differentiate black vs Jade snails
I've resigned myself to the idea That they're mostly black, but some of the very small hatchlings from the last clutch look like they are starting to for very light feet, they look like small shells gliding along the tank. Still have a clutch incubating too so in curious about what comes from that. I did think about getting a few gold and blues to vary the gene pool and colors.Rtessy said:Maybe you'll get some Jade! But they do look like brown/black babies to be. If you had light footed babies, their feet would have been so see through that you wouldn't have been able to see them! Would have looked like tiny moving transluscent shells.
Looks like a Jade mystery snail to meladyrivermouse said:So their shells are turning like a dark green and gold color and some of their feet are light with speckles and some of them are dark. It looks like there's definitely some black snails in the hatchery. I've not seen a black snail with a light foot though, is that weird?
