Well I swished the rest of the clutch in the water to help it hatch. I have well over 100. I finger counted 36 with purple on their shells. I was wanting to know..Are the dark footed snails born with the dark feet? Or does their feet change color with age? How fast do they go, when will they be big enough to put in the tank with the guppies? Thanks

Hello again :-)

Dark footed snails are born that way, but not AS DARK as they will get. On the other side, light footed babies are WHITE footed when born, so you would be able to tell the difference :-)

When to put them with the Gupps is a hard question??? I've heard that Guppies can be nippy to the tenticles, but also that they pay more attention to adults (look like worms, I guess?). I say give it a try, but keep a close eye on them. They grow fairly fast in good conditions. Can get to Pea Size in a month or so.

Hope that helps :-)

I also have a piece of cutle bone floating for calcium. I couldn't find the calcium drops at walmart.

hmmmmm.....do you have a filter on the container? If so, the space around it should be fine once you put the lid back on. They do need air circulation, so don't just put an air tight lid on.....is that what you were asking

Cuttlebone is good. They will eat it and absorb the calcium that way plus it will leach into the water. I know that the pet chains carry liquid calcium, but that's fine for now.

No there is no filter. Can I drill holes in the lid? would that be ok? OR what can I use for a top so they dont escape? It's just a plastic storage box with a snap-on lid. thanks
