I'm new here from Georgia (close to Atlanta) & I'm very techno challenged so I don't know how to post pictures & I'm probably WAY TOO OLD to be taking part in a forum anyway. I have 3 Mystery/Apple snails (not sure of the difference) & one adorable small blackish/blue double tail betta the container said he was "Mustard" (can't figure that one out:-(). Either way I was a total disaster w/my first betta who passed away after only 4 months. I think my husband & I did EVERYTHING wrong. Hopefully we've learned & r doing things right now w/Little Blue. My ? here is about my snails however. One has laid 2 egg clutches (I guess that's what you call them) that are in my Fluval Spec V tank. When I bought the 2 from a very reputable aquatic store I had no idea of their sexes. I love Mystery/Apple snails, but I'm not sure I can successfully raise A WHOLE BUNCH of them. Does anyone have any suggestions. I also have a VERY LARGE snail in w/my one betta in a 10g Aqueon filtered/heated/live planted aquarium, but DO NOT want to put anything else in w/them they are doing well just the 2 together. Thank you ahead of time for suggestions
Unfortunately I have never kept aquatic snails so can't advise you on their care, but if you're unable to care for many baby snails then the best thing to do would be to remove the eggs from the tank and destroy them humanely (freezing or boiling) before they start to develop.

I totally agree with you but I have been able to come up with some very humane and good results for these nails IF they even hatch. in all honesty as I watched the clutches I can't imagine that I'm really going to get any baby snails from them, but we'll see and I'll keep everybody posted. Thanks again and he helped anybody else can give me will be greatly appreciated.
