I recently bought a "striped nerite" snail from one of my local shops. I didn't even really look at the snail closely because I was in a hurry, just saw it had a nice-looking shell and said I'd take it.

Well I get it home and into a tank and hey, that's not a nerite, it's a mystery snail! Really nice coloring, although the shell is in terrible condition. He/she is in harder water now so that shouldn't be an issue for long.

Anyway I'm just wondering, if I wanted to put this snail in with a member of the opposite sex, how large would it need to be before it would breed? It's tiny now, about the size of a nerite.
