    Thank you. About half are still alive, maybe, it can be hard to tell, but I'm still pulling out dead snails. Thank you.
  2. Apple Snail Babies For Sale

    Hello to all! I'm sorry I disappeared for a while there. Unfortunately I became fairly ill with a bad case of bronchitis just before my wisdom teeth removal. Despite being ill I went ahead with the tooth removal simply because I wasn't sure when I would next be able to schedule it and I was in quite a bit of pain from the tooth. Coping with the bronchitis and the pain/healing from the tooth removal was a bit overwhelming. I was basically dragging myself to school and then crashing once I got home. The snails continued to grow and thrive during this time. Unfortunately something went wrong with this past Monday's water change. I have lost a bunch of snails, including their mother, and I'm not sure if any of those remaining will survive as they are all still doing poorly. All the water parameters were fine and matched, there was no testable copper in the water . . . I have no idea what happened. I've done two 100% water changes since, but to no visible improvement. I shall keep you all updated, but I honestly don't know if I'll be able to save any of them.

    Hello all! So I finally found heaters for the snails. They're in stock and all I have to do is pick them up and confirm they heat to the right temperature. They'll provide 200 hours (8 days) of heat. They'll add about $2 to the shipping cost. Hopefully I can get up to the store on Thursday (just getting through a slew of tests first, 5 in 4 days). If I can get them before my wisdom teeth come out on Friday I'll be able to mail out snails on Monday/Tuesday. Anyone who's interested if you could please PM me your address (the postal code is the most important part for the quote) by Thursday so I can get shipping quotes for you before the weekend. Thanks for your patience!!

    PM me. We'll see if we can figure something out. I'm looking into heating for shipping . I'm still trying to find more specific shipping guidelines, but since apple snails can't survive longer than 4 days at 20'C and can't survive a full day at 10'C or below I'd say we're on the border line. With the temperatures we've been having locally I'd say that for now Ontario's OK, even with regular shipping, as long as I insulate them a bit. But, since winter always seems to hit Alberta sooner . . . if it's freezing overnight already I'd say I would have to look into adding some kind of heat. I know there's an apple snail breeder in Burlington (or was it Brampton?) who sends hers out with little battery operated heaters. I could always try to find out what she uses. If I were to send them that way they would, for obvious reasons, be a bit more expensive. I'll look into it over the weekend and let you know. If you're reasonably sure you want them PM me with the address they'd be going to and I can get you a more specific shipping quote. Silly little snails took too long to grow up! They didn't realize it would be almost too cold to travel once they were ready for their new homes If you PM me your address I can go to the post office and find out for you. (Shipping is different depending on where I ship them, so I'll have to get specific quotes each time ). I have heat pads that when activated last 48 hr I could ship you some. Only would cost shipping. Thanks! I may take you up on that. I've been checking several stores that I know used to carry some and there aren't any at the moment. I've got two more stores to check out and if they don't have them I'll definitely let you know!

    I was thinking about those, but was wondering if they wouldn't get too hot? I suppose I could buy one, crack it and take the temperature . . . Thank you! Thank you! Once you have the prefilters on it's no more work. As you can see I just used cut up AC sponge. They're so fun! You should go for it.

  10. Hello fellow kokonuts. As many of you are probably already aware I've been raising a batch of apple snail babies. Well, many of them are ready to go. With the cold weather fast approaching it's just in time too!! I will happily sell baby snails to fellow Canadians. Sorry to everyone outside the Great White North, but I don't want to deal with the legality of internationally shipping a live animal. If you do want an apple snail or two and you live in Canada I would just ask that you double-check that it's legal for you to own one in your region as I am too busy with school to look that up for everyone. As far as cost goes I am asking $1/snail plus the cost of packaging and shipping. As far as shipping goes you can choose whatever method you like: express, over night, 'snail mail'. The little guys are supposed to be able to survive a week in the mail, but I don't want to make any guarantees. Obviously I would recommend faster shipping, but it'll be your call. Once I know where I'm shipping to I can PM you quotes for the different classes of mail for you to make your decision. I'll also be sure to mail everyone out on either Mondays (for regular mail) or, for all faster shipping, no later than Tuesdays. Right now I am only ready to sell off the ones that are obviously brown as the other colours are still shifting and I haven't decided yet which snails I'm keeping. If you want something other than brown let me know and I'll reserve on a first come first served basis as long as the colour is available. You just may have to wait an extra week for me to ship a non-brown colour so that I have enough time for me to decide who I'm keeping. Here's a group shot: For details of their growth and close up shots please see this thread: http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/117934-apple-snail-eggs-round-2/

  13. Apple Snail Eggs - Round 2

    Took a good chunk of photos tonight. I think they show the variety pretty nicely. In no particular order here they are: This photo shows quite nicely how the goldens are turning sort of an orange-ey brown colour. I'm quite liking the variant. Maybe, kinda-sort of purple?? I almost wonder if the guy by the moss ball is either jade or olive. The blurry guy at the front might be another purple. Mamma's the big one towards the back. Most of them still have little spikes at the front of their shells. There's too many babies for me to tell if they are going away or not. Most of the snails have at least one sibling the same size and colour, so I can't tell them apart.
