Hi guys!
I need some advice. I have many many baby mystery snails. I took the parents out to be cautious. I didn’t want the parents to squash them so I have them in another contain. I have 5 adult mystery snails. I have attached a photo of the babies in there right now. Please let me know if you think it’s safe to keep the adults with the babies or that I should wait for them to get bigger? I have some pea sized snails but there are definitely smaller ones that are in there right now. Thankfully they grow quickly! Thanks so much for taking to time to read my post and any insight or advice is greatly appreciated!

I wouldn't worry to much leaving them in, I've not heard of anyone taking the parents out of tanks, they breed so fast youll be over run in no time
