This may be an obscure question... But I recently learned that ramshorn snails actually breath air and have to come to the surface on occasion to fill their shells up with air to sustain them underwater (which explains a lot, like why there are always some climbing up to the surface and why bubbles sometimes come out of them when I pluck one off the glass). But this made me wonder, how do baby ramshorns survive if they hatch from little snail eggs presumably deep down in the tank? It seems like for a newly hatched tiny snail it must be a monumental trek to the surface for air...
