The pretty triangular snail is alive, and growing I guess, very exciting!

Prettysnail is alive and fantastic. It doesn't grow as much in length now, but perhaps it is growing at a similar rate of mass of shell and body anyway.

The nerites seem to have a good time.

I've found a little orange ball with some whitish tentacles on it, I hope it's an anemone, the beginning of a coral or some other exciting thing.

Is it large enough to take pictures of? It would be very interesting to see its progress.

The ball was about 3 mm., but this morning it had moved! If I see it again I can take a picture!

Yes, and exciting! I know some of Trochidae (because Prettysnail is of the Trochidae family, right?) can get very big :-)

Thanks!

Any tips if I would like my nerites to lay egg capsules?
