    It's been a while but I finally decided to upload my Strombus Snails mating, was about 10-11pm when this happened. For some reason only 1 uploaded so I'll have to try and get the other 3 up. This video was one on the courtship, the other ones are during the actual mating itself.

    I have noticed that at night the emerge on the glass in 1 big wave and then pair up.

    I have a picture up already of the 60 DPS progression but I also have 2 new pictures I've taken that show earlier stages of development.

    This is the youngest I have been able to find. I'm really sorry about this first picture. My phone just couldn't handle it. It is the white tiny blur in the middle of the medicine measuring cup.

    Here is another picture of it compared to an adult.
