UPDATE:

Three months. Last week I've feed babies for first time. Aftermath: bacteria or algae explosion. Yellowish water:

Parameters ok, so I don't touch anything. I just reduce photoperiod, and water goes clear slowly.

About theodoxus: Very surprised with them. I've seen eggs on the glass. Amazing, freshwater/cold snails could breed on brackish/warm tank.

Finally, after six weeks berried... larvae birth!!

Fifteen babies, more o less. And some discarded eggs. Non fertilized, I suppose:

And four berried females more. So party has just begun!!


Excuse me bad quality pics. Hard to obtain good ones on green water.
