    I have like 65 of these guys, the bigger ones are in a separate tank. But I was wondering: what color (or kind) do you think these mystery snails are? They look very green to me, but sometimes too dull to actually tell. What do you guys think? Did I end up with Jade Mysteries?? (Hopefully!) Or do they look brown? I just need other opinions lol I've been looking at them for too long and can't decipher what color they are! Here are 2 pictures: one with flash and one without. IMAG0135.jpg IMAG0133.jpg

    They look a lot like jade rather than brown. There really cute though. I have to ask if there for sale?
    Good luck with them!

    Yknow I never really thought about that. I do have a lot and wouldn't mind selling some, lol. How much do people usually buy Jades for?

    Agreed with above; they look like jade. Has more of a green-brown color.

    Usually $5 to $15 depending on shipping. If you are going to sell I will take one. I live in Orlando FL.

    For the first 5-6 weeks, baby brown snails appear green... Just wanted to let you know

    If you let me know the parent options I can tell you for sure.
    They’re either striped jade or a wild type. Striped jade can only be made by
    -chestnut x blue
    -jade x chestnut
    -striped jade x yellow
    -striped jade x white

    Well idk lol, they're 3 months old now and they're still green. The parents are a striped black mystery (male) and an Ivory/Gold Mystery (female).
