Nice but that looks like a male and a female in you picture called "the fathers".

The male from my observations tends to be the littler one and have the thinner stripes (left) and the female tends to be larger with bigger stripes (right). Now this in no way is 100% for determining which is which but is just gathered from observing my snails.

Nice snails :D.

They do lay interesting eggs don't they?

I've been thinking abou these for my shrimp tank, I've been told they won't harm nerite snails but I am unsure...

From my experience I have had Assassin's take down olive nerites myself and Full Grown Brigs with others I know in gang feedings. Now they have not bothered my larger nerites, but they probably would if I did not add feeder snails on a regular basis now.

Have fun with the small ones when they hatch I didn't see any of the babes for a couple of months they like to bury themselves in the substrate and stay hidden.
