Some really pretty pond snails. I’d like to call them albino pond snails/ bladder snails

The dark ones are bladder snails and the pale ones are pond snails.

AH I just found a really relevant post but I’m not sure if it’s another forum or just a weird website
Anyways the guy at the end goes “My prized snow white bladder snail. Currently working to develop a “pure” strain of these unique snails“
And they look just like yours. Would post a link but idk if I’d get yelled at
You should hold on to those, they are really really cool

Yes they do breed like crazy. I would recommend getting rid of them. Yes there cute but when you have a thousand not so much. Loaches eat them and Assassin snails. Had an outbreak of them for about a month in a shrimp tank. No matter how many I squished more appeared. Shrimp tank so wasn’t feeding much at all. But those snails kept coming. Got 6 Assassins last week and rarely see them now. Unfortunately the Assassins are also eating up my mts population.

Takes time, but snails also can die off if the food source becomes scarce...but that...takes time:

I managed to get some albino-esque pond snails one time. Would have loved to breed them, but I lost them in the plants lol

Great video I've watched it once before.
These snails I don't see being a huge issue yet... my guppys love feeding off there egg clusters they leave on the glass. Guppys are happy than am happy

Also wanted to share this picture. Anyone know what guppy pattern she might be?
