The big ones. I think they are mystery or apple, forgot what I ordered way back when. There are 3 in the tank - are they mail/female or all just one sex? Haven't seen any eggs (or new baby ones) yet. In that second picture I tried to leave some space above the water because I believe some snails crawl out to lay eggs in the water - does that look like enough space if they are indeed those types of snails? FYI that is a 29 gallon tank.

If you ordered them from out of state since about 2006 they would be mystery snails. You can't ship or transport apples across state lines. Well not legally. Lol
And your pics didn't show up.

I was taking a lot of assumptions. I have been trying to get a couple apples for a few years now. I can't even order in crayfish.

I hope you took what I said as a joke.

OK, got them recently so they must be mystery snails! I'll read up on them, thanks! I know there are mystery snails of all different "colors" are they all the same or close species so they can breed together? Or they are really different species so no interbreeding really possible? Was thinking about getting some more of different colors. Thanks!

Haha ebay and amazon over a pretty long time period, lots of different orders. They are very cool, but not that good at using up nitrates.
