Just wondering if any of y'all knew the birthrate of black mystery snails. I'm waiting for mass infiltration of snails, but I just have these same three, with the ring leader, Boss Hogg, eating up all of the food. I guess it's possible that I have same-sex snails.  Clown plecos wouldn't eat eggs, would they? I've seen mine eat flake food and wood....

I researched as soon as I sent that post.  I didn't know you had to lower the water level and stuff...so I'll try it.  I'm hoping I can get away with an inch; the sound of falling water tends to get on my nerves if I'm trying to concentrate. TMI, but yeah, I'll lower my water level and see what I can see.

Are all snails hermaphrodite? Cause it could be they are just a slow at getting round to the business end

These snails are definitely sexed. I thought the same until I did some research this morning.

Ahh, I didn't know that I just assumed they were all capable of being both sexes, like regular snails.
