My iredalei are 'mature' Was hard to notice at first because of their white skin. But its definatly bulging. So the bigger of the 2 has now joined the fulica. Quite sad about it, but least they both have company still. Its got to be done, everyone has iredalei so I'd end up over run if I didn't. Nat
Mine (Nancy) stayed little and really shy for ages and then one day decided she was fed up of that and had a growth spurt, now shes growing so fast. Doesn't think much of her room mate Sid tho (no worries, he's a dimidiata not an iredalei).
"My dearest friend, if you don't mind, I'd like to join you by your side... Where we can gaze into the stars, and sit together, now and forever... For it is plain, as anyone can see...we're simply meant to be...
Sod off Mike, lmao. If it were tigers or something I would. But iredalei aren't a hugely wanted species. I'm not going to risk a whole batch for 1 or 2 babies If I had definate homes, I'd leave them together.
Although i suppose you could breed them once to bring in a new gene line, we've all had ones off Mike but u can't breed them together so if anyone else wanted to breed them they could have one of yours :-)

I want some!! lol. I don't care if they're not wanted Makes me want them even more.
If anyone has 2 they don't want.. I'll have them. All I want is 2..
I'm such a pain
It's amazing to me how "common" some of these species are on this board. I've only ever seen Fulica in shops and online to start with. Then I saw the Dimidiata on a site and on ebay but that's still all I've seen lol. So all these "common" ones to you are still WOW! to me hahaha.
I must not be looking in the right places...

Sian you would have to separate them as Nat has done when they reach maturity as these snails are livebearers!!!! Getting rid of eggs is one thing but getting rid of live tiny baby snails is quite another, I'm sure you will agree.
Better the chaos of creativity than the tidiness of idleness.

Ok I change my plea haha. If anyone has 1 that they don't want (not saying you wouldn't want them in the bad way, you know what I mean right?!), can I have it please? lol. I could put it in with my Fulica too.
