Baby Notopala top and bottom

Recommended Posts

I have been noticing this baby notopala getting about in one of my tanks, I am assuming its the same one each time, although it could well be different ones. But wanted to share pictures of the underside of these babies as well as top view, just in case anyone else is lucky enough to also get this species of snail and wants to id the babies.

Even though this baby was near the ravaged anubius I do not believe he is the guilty party.

And a side view of an adult of these snails, most likely a parent of the above baby

At the moment I don't really know what the exact parameters are in the tank, and sadly it might be a while before I do more than the standard drops and tops thanks to a pipe leaking in the house and causing some damage, and now waiting on insurance assessors and possibly builders to do repairs. (Thank goodness it was nothing to do with my tanks over in the car shed, instead it was a wayward pipe behind the shower).

I think I have worked out that the snails have one baby at a time, this is a semi educated guess since I know for a fact that in one tank I have 2 babies with distinct size differences. If not being born at different times then I guess it could be food limitations causing slow growth on one of the babies. But I am more inclined to go with one baby at a time.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
