How many theodoxus babies with one mother?

Fuku Bonsai and Shrimpmart used to sell it. You can ask hawaii-opaeula.com or go to Hawaii . Millions of them on the rocks and they are picked for human food. Read they taste like abalone.

Thanks for the info.

Theodoxus it's not a prolific snail. In my freshwater cold tank every female six or seven eggs, just in spring. But I'm surprised with them at brackish/warm opaeula tank: continuous laying with more eggs.

Got a video of a berried Alpha eating.
That is a really neat video, I fed mine some fish flake and they feed from the surface like Opae ula which i found interesting.

Interesting, I don't really feed but an occasional hermit crab food for them which sinks.

Not the best video :sad: , but I think this video shows them mating. One Opae Ula on top of another.
