So I have some mystery snails that I was thinking about trying to breed. Before I start I would like some questions to be answered.

#1. How big of a tank should I let the baby snails grow up in?

#2. What should I feed the baby snails? And how much will they eat?

#3. Can you breed Golden Mystery Snails with Blue Mystery Snails? And what color snails would the baby’s be?

1. Depends on how many babies, I'd say a 20 gallong long would work for starting out pretty well. As they grow, you would probably need more tanks, or a bigger tank, or lots of wster changes. Don't be surprised to see 100+ baby snails.

They eat all the same things the adults eat, so blanched veggies or algae wafers, and don't forget something for calcium, they will need a lot as they grow out. I wouldn't leave anything in there longer than 12 or so hours, so maybe overnight would be good before replacing it.

Yes you can. You'll probably end up with a good mix of both. Maybe a few throwbacks more brown in color.
