An ivory ramshorn snail?

I have kept my pink ramshorn snails for a few years and they keep breeding and produce various shades of pink… until now. They seem to have spontaneously mutated which puzzled the heck out of me to begin with. I kept picking up the snail in the featured photo for a week thinking it was dead or dying… until I realized that no, it in fact is what I would call an ivory ramshorn snail. I have since found a few with similar coloration. if a bit more peach, and a single baby which has no obvious pigment.  I will let this small group breed and see if it is a color that can be stabilized. Most people I have talked to report that gold or white colored ramshorns snails die when pea sized or smaller. The snail in the featured photo is quite large, perhaps nickel size. You can see it over a quarter below along with a few other photos.
