So I purchased 2 Mystery Snails without knowing what gender they were turns out one is female & one is male. I now have 3 egg clutches & the snails are constantly breeding. I don't know if any will be viable & they may not even hatch. 2 clutches I've moved to a make shift incubator & the 3rd I'm leaving be. Please may I have suggestions as to weather I should separate the two snails to prevent further breeding or leave everything as it is. I really do NOT want 100 + snails even though they are my favorite aquatic pet. I have 3 aquariums = two 10g & one 5g the 5g has nothing in it except plants, & a sponge filter. I also have baby cory catfish growing out in the other 10g tank which has been an ordeal for me. I'm re-homing them as soon as they are large enough. If any of the snail clutches hatch where would you all suggest I put them? All I ever wanted was one Betta fish & one Mystery snail. Both attempts at having Bettas was disastrous. They both died around 5-6 months after getting them (gotten at different times never together). I gave up on bettas but stuck it out w/ the snails though I've lost my fair share of those too. Pls. offer suggestions.

Just remove any eggs you don’t want and freeze them. Btw, 3 clutches is going to be a LOT of babies, more then 2 10 gallons and a 5 gallon can handle (at least they won’t handle them for very long), I would suggest freezing one or two of the clutches. With that many clutches you could have anywhere from 175-500 baby snails.
