Give it a little more time. When they hatch they "chew" their way through the clutch. A hatching or half hatched clutch is easy to recognize.

hth :)

^^ i belive they are born with thier shells but i think they aren't as tough as when they are older. and the tank they are in has only snails in it now so when they are born they will be safe ;) and thanks ^^

and snails *brigs not pest or canas* are wonderfull pets they have alot of personality and are fun to just watch most of the time. they are one of my faviortes from all of my fishy friends ^^ (2nd is shrimpand bettas lol)

Baby brigs (pomacea bridgessi) hatch out as perfect miniatures of their parents, shells and all. At first their shells are a little soft/weak. But within a day or two their shells harden.

hth :happy:
