    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....

    They lay their eggs above the water line in grape shaped masses. seems they take awhile, mine haven't bed yet either.

    I researched as soon as I sent that post.  I didn't know you had to lower the water level and 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. :)
