    I have been told that the assassin snail takes a male and female to lay eggs can anyone either post or direct me to pictures of assassin eggs? I have had pest snails and they go up out of the water to lay eggs and reproduce so fast I have never really looked for there eggs. I have 9 of the assassin snails and am really hoping they will reproduce. I would appreciate any information/pictures you can share on :animal0070:

    It was a good 3 1/2 months before I saw the first baby (last week in fact) just make sure there are plenty of baby snails for them to feed on :)

    They have made a big dint in my pest snail population so I put in some extra wafers and sure enough i have a mass of baby snails for food. I have been picking out the larger pest to try to help the assassin control the population. I have fallen in love with the little assassin snail. I never thought a snail could be so interesting. Do you know if they lay there eggs in or out of the water?
