Little things hanging from snail

Msb1231

I just came home and one of my snails was on the side of the aquarium. I looked closer and saw these dots all clumped up basically hanging from the snail. I scooped out what I could but I have no idea what these are... anyone else know?

ive never seen him go that much! Just for future reference, i have 2 snails in all of my tanks. Is there any way for me to figure out their sex?

What kind of snail are they? All snails are hard to sex, but if they are nerites you should find eggs everywhere there are females. Mystery snails are hard and require you to take them out of the water most of the time. Other snails I have no idea lol but I’m sure someone on here can help you.

I am assuming the zebra snail you said is a zebra nerite?
With Nerites just wait and look for little white skirt hints stuck to the glass, decorations, filter, etc. and you will know you have a female. If they are in the same tank try to watch them for a bit and notice which one is laying the eggs, it there are any.
For the mystery snails it is really hard for me to explain so I’ll just link a good video.
This is not my video, I give credit to the YouTuber.

Thank you. I watched it! I just looked at one of my tanks and I think my snails may be trying to do it
