    It is always better! Now they feed and are more 'active than usual. When can I have new photos.
    After how much time they give birth to small?

    Hi

    Sorry I can't tell you how much time it takes these snails to have babies: at home, I have at least one new baby each two days, but I have a lot of Tylos. My sp. "orange" are the less prolific between all the species I have.

    From what I have read, it's around 1 baby each 4/6 weeks, but it's more often in my tank.

    Hi

    Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing whether the snail is a male or a female from the outside. Unless you have the chance to see the Tylomelania giving birth to a baby...

    Hi, Kobal

    Yesterday I saw an orange TYLO that mated with a yellow!
    To you they have never hybridized?

    Hi

    I don't know if they can hybridize. All I can say is that every time I saw two snails mate, they were two of the same variety.

    Do they prefer their own variety when they have the choice? That's an interesting question!

    I have 7 species of Tylomelania in the same tank for more than two years now, and I still have babies that look like their parents, no new color has appeared.

    Perhaps the five TYLO orange are all females?

    One thing to consider when tylos aren't active is if the tds or hardness. Get to high..20% water change with distiller water helps alot...this helps my tylos alot ..they get very sluggish and after this very active
