10 rabbit snail babies and it seems, counting ?!

Dezbian

Hi guys so I posted about my rabbit snail having a few babies a little while back. It was 3 at that point I think....or maybe 6? Well now it's 10 babies and she won't stop with the babies.

1. Is this a rabbit snail or something else? I got her so I wouldn't be over run with snails....and now theres 10
2. No I don't/wont sell online or ship anywhere I don't want to deal with it
3. My lfs is in weymouth Massachusetts if anybody lives near here and wants them

I've attached photos of the biggest ones and the smallest ones or what was the smallest, now there's 2 new ones, theres also the mom. I'm over run and confused!

From the looks of the snail on the glass you may also have some Malaysian trumpet snails. They could have come in on the plants in the tank. They are prolific breeders and will stay in the substrate till there a bit bigger usually. If you could get some closer pictures of the ones on the glass it may be easier to ID.

But I haven't had any new plants in like 6 months and the babies just started showing up after the mom is she a trumpet snail? Did they lie to me....

Bigger ones a rabbit snail I have bladder snails(I personally like them) came on mystery snails thinking you might have had a hitchhiker on your rabbit snail

They could have been hiding in your substrate and only coming out during lights off. They definitely look very similar to the 100’s of MTS we have in all our tanks. Do you have algae wafers? Maybe drop a small piece of one in there and see how many congregate to it and get a couple good close up pictures.
