Snail reproduction

Postby annmarie on Wed Apr 15, 2015 1:06 pm

I cleaned our tank yesterday and did a 10% water change. Today I noticed an astrea snail with bubbles near it on the water surface line. There is a "string" looking thing through a few of these bubbles. I can see several clusters around the top. I also saw a few white things attacked to the underside of two of the crown/turban snails.

I am curious if this all points to baby snails?

I have not noticed these phenomena before.

Thank you for any input and advice.

Sorry that the pictures are not real clear.

I did just see one of the tiny white "things" from the underside of the crown snail on the aquarium glass....and it has antennas and it moved. So baby snails it is for the crown snail.

Those look like pyramid snails to me. They are not good.

They do look like those and are now on a few other snails.

I'm guessing they came in on the newer snails I bought a few weeks ago.

Thank you for sharing. I really appreciate being informed of a possible problem!
