Well im a noob with them, but i work at the pet shop and the GALS there had babies and i took 10 home and 2 eggs. Just take them out of the parents cage, or put a cup over them or something to stop them being disturbed, i put mine on a piece of lettuce then scraped a cuttlefish bone over it to get the powdser onto it, then just cover them up with somthing light, like a small layer of substrate or some moss. Then spray once a day. Theres quite a bit but once its set up youve just got to be patient, grrr i cant post the link to a good forum but add me on msn,

Hi theyre simple to care for, usually people advise you to Seperate from the parent(s), to avoid being crushed or something.

All you need is a 2 foot aquarium to give the babies room to move, and to grow.
And then when theyre bigger you have a choice, keep ALL babies.
Or sell a few and keep some.

If sales happen, you wont get much probly 3 pound per snail.
